Patriots practice update for Thursday Oct. 25

FOXBOROUGH — Linebacker Jerod Mayo, who missed Wednesday’s practice because of an “illness/elbow” issue, returned for Thursday’s final workout before the Patriots departed for London for Sunday’s game against the St. Louis Rams at Wembley Stadium.

The Globe’s Michael Whitmer reported tight end Aaron Hernandez (ankle), who was limited Wednesday, was not spotted during the media-access portion of Thursday’s practice in shorts and shells at the upper fields behind Gillette Stadium.

Also absent were cornerback Ras-I Dowling (thigh), safety Steve Gregory (hip), running back Brandon Bolden (knee), linebacker Tracy White (foot), and defensive end Trevor Scott (hamstring), all of whom did not practice for the second day in a row.
