The Patriots have been docked two days of Organized Team Activities due to a violation of league rules, Andrew Callahan of the Boston Herald reports.  This according to an ESPN report Wednesday.

It is unclear what offseason rules the team broke.

Earlier Wednesday, the Patriots announced they were cancelling practices scheduled for Thursday and Tuesday, May 30. They will next return to the field for an OTA practice on Wednesday, May 31. OTA practices are non-padded, voluntary for players and are purposed to install the team’s playbooks.

The Pats recently entered Phase Three of their offseason program, when players and coaches can conduct 10 OTA practices, per league rules. No live contact is permitted, but teams can run 7-on-7, 9-on-7 and 11-on-11 drills for the first time.

In Phase Two, which concluded last Sunday, players and coaches could work together on the field. Teams across the league held workouts and drills for individual and positional instruction over a three-week span. Offensive and defensive players could also line up across from one another and practice at a walkthrough pace.
