Week 4: Friday Patriots practice update

FOXBOROUGH — The following players were missing from the media portion of practice today, Albert Haynesworth, Aaron Hernandez, Sebastian Vollmer, Mike Wright and Ras-I Dowling, the Globe’s Shalise Manza Young reports.

This is the second consecutive day Haynesworth has missed practice. He missed practice yesterday due to a back issue, which also kept him out of last week’s game against the Buffalo Bills.

Tight end Aaron Hernandez hasn’t practiced since he sprained his MCL against the San Diego Chargers in Week 2.

The Patriots have been without Vollmer who has not practiced due to a back injury.

The Patriots will release their participation report later this afternoon.
