LaFell has ditched the walking boot on his left foot, Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports. In an interview with Sirius XM NFL Radio, LaFell stated, "I'm out of the boot now and I'm just looking forward to starting camp."

LaFell tended to shoulder and toe injuries in the latter part of last season, which extended through the Patriots' Super Bowl run. The toe concern seemingly spurred use of the boot, and he even missed offseason workouts as a result. Now that the boot has been removed, he can focus on developing further chemistry with Tom Brady in the passing attack. While Brady's status remains up in the air due to a looming decision on his four-game suspension, LaFell will look to build upon his first campaign in New England in which he hauled in 74 balls (on 119 targets) for 953 yards and seven touchdowns.

LaFell has been wearing a boot on his left foot, Boston Globe writer Shalise Manza Young reports.

The Patriots haven't provided any details, but LaFell was listed on the injury report with shoulder and toe issues during the team's playoff run, and it's possible this is related to the latter. Although there's been no indication the issue is serious, LaFell's training camp participation will be worth keeping an eye on.

LaFell (toe) caught 4-of-7 targets for 29 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 28-24 Super Bowl win over the Seahawks.

LaFell finished fifth on the team in receptions and receiving yards, but he did kick off the game's scoring on a slant route. His first season in New England resulted in new career-high marks in every major receiving category, even though he didn't catch a pass until Week 3. Signed through 2016, LaFell figures to be back with a New England team that will likely have a similar receiving corps in 2015.

LaFell (toe) is active for Sunday's Super Bowl against the Seahawks.

LaFell finished 2014 second on the team in both yards (953) and receiving touchdowns (7), and will undoubtedly play a major role in helping quarterback Tom Brady attempt to find space in Seattle's acclaimed pass defense.

LaFell (toe) was not listed on Wednesday's injury report.

LaFell's absence suggests his toe is improving, as the wideout should be all but a lock to play in the Super Bowl on Sunday.

LaFell (toe) is listed as questionable for next Sunday's Super Bowl against Seattle, Boston Globe writer Shalise Manza Young reports.

Despite being listed as questionable, LaFell will almost certainly play in the Super Bowl. He's been playing through his toe issue for over a month now, and he was able to make limited practice appearances all through this week.

LaFell (shoulder/toe) was one of six Patriots' players listed as a limited practice participant Thursday, the team's official site reports.

LaFell has been an injury report regular of late, but the last time he missed a game was back in 2012 and in the absence of any setbacks, he's in no danger of missing the Super Bowl. Look for the wideout to be listed as probable for the contest when the Patriots' final injury report of the season is released next week.

LaFell (shoulder/toe) was on the field for 70-of-78 snaps on offense in Sunday's AFC Championship Game, ESPN.com reports.

In the process, LaFell caught four passes for 28 yards in the Patriots' 45-7 win over the Colts, a game featuring a heavy dose of power back LeGarrette Blount. LaFell is in line to continue to see plenty of snaps in Super Bowl XLIX, which could well result in more targets than the six he saw in Sunday's blowout win.

LaFell (shoulder/toe) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Colts.

LaFell is good to go for Sunday's AFC Championship game and in line to see his share of looks in the Patriots' offense in the contest, along with fellow starting wideout Julian Edelman, and Danny Amendola, to a lesser degree.
