FOXBOROUGH — Cornerback Alfonzo Dennard returned to practice Friday, one day after sitting out with a knee injury, and was listed by the Patriots as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Texans.

The Patriots ruled three players out: offensive lineman Marcus Cannon (ankle), receiver Aaron Dobson (foot), and tight end Michael Hoomanawanui (knee). None of those three participated in any practices this week.

In addition to Dennard, six other Patriots were listed as questionable, including safety Steve Gregory, who has missed the last two games with a broken thumb.
