Friday roll call: Only Gronkowski missing

The Patriots are practicing on the upper grass fields today (the fields used during training camp) and wearing shells and sweats.

Nick McDonald returned to practice, which means that Rob Gronkowski was the only player not present during the media-access portion of practice.

New England will practice again on Saturday due to the Monday night game.
