Patriots LB confused by tactics, being sent home

Thursday, December 10, 2009 - 1:43pm

Patriots linebacker Adalius Thomas is surprised he was sent home by coach Bill Belichick for being late to a team meeting.

Thomas was one of four players who were sent home for tardiness on Wednesday. He said Thursday that he was surprised because he had called ahead to say he might be late as players are instructed to do. Thomas also said he almost got into a car accident as he drove to Gillette Stadium during a snowfall that tied up traffic.
