Despite struggling during training camp, the New England Patriots offense will work out

the kinks during their first preseason game against the New York Giants.

Sources reported that Jones and most NFL starters will not take part in the game tonight.

It is not surprising that players like Julian Edelman,

who are important to the offense, will not play in the preseason.

The choice not to include starting players is likely due to Bill Belichick's belief that

they should use the joint practices against Carolina and

Las Vegas as an opportunity to work on their offensive issues.
