LINK The Patriots are going to have to get by without Ty Law for at least a month -- and perhaps as long as seven weeks -- after the Pro Bowl cornerback was diagnosed with a broken bone in his left foot by a team doctor. Law collapsed on the field after turning the wrong way while in pass coverage during Sunday's 34-20 loss to the Steelers at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh. The Patriots did not report to the NFL office that any players visited yesterday, though if the players came in after 4 p.m., when the list is due, the team can wait to report the visit until the next day. There are some older defensive backs out there -- including Otis Smith and Matt Stevens, two players who know the New England system -- or the Patriots could activate Earthwind Moreland off the practice squad. There aren't many options, however.
