Connolly returns to practice

FOXBOROUGH – Dan Connolly, who has started all six games this season at right guard, was back on the practice field today after missing Wednesday’s workout with a concussion. Four players were not spotted: cornerback Aqib Talib, receiver Danny Amendola, defensive tackle Tommy Kelly, and running back Leon Washington.

Connolly left Sunday’s game with the Saints after the first offensive series, and did not return. He’s had multiple concussions in his time with the Patriots.

Amendola also suffered a concussion against the Saints, while Talib is dealing with a hip injury. Players were in shorts and shells, working on the upper field behind Gillette Stadium.
