In addition to Moss, the other players were defensive end Derrick Burgess and linebackers Adalius Thomas and Gary Guyton, according to the source. The players were apparently delayed by weather conditions. All four were absent from Wednesday afternoon's practice.


The story was first reported by the Providence Journal.


Patriots coach Bill Belichick did not confirm the report.


"Anything that happens with discipline on the team will stay between me and the players," Belichick said Wednesday morning.

"You're told to call and you call, you get sent home," Thomas said.


"That's not an excuse," he said, but "I could have been in the ditch. They really don't give a damn, honestly. As long as you ain't in the meeting they really don't give a (expletive)."


"He's the head coach. He makes all the calls and so whether you agree with it or not, you just roll with them," Thomas said. "That's one thing about Mother Nature. You can't control that. You can't run people over getting to work, so there ain't nothing to really apologize (for). I didn't try to be late. (There are) cars sitting in the road, you're sitting there. It's not the Jetsons. I can't jump up and just fly. What am I supposed to do?"
