Bruschi's first day on the field since suffering the serious setback raised questions about any first day jitters and his readiness for game situations.

The Patriots linebacker felt no pain or discomfort after his initial practice and still sets an ambitious return to the field slated for October 30 against the Buffalo Bills.

"I'm going to try. I'm going to try. Today was the first step in my attempt. I felt good out there, like I was saying, but I'm not going to make any guarantees or promises (other than) that I'm going to give it my best shot," said Bruschi.
