The Patriots are practicing outdoors for the first time this week (they were inside the Dana-Farber Fieldhouse for Wednesday's walkthrough and yesterday's practice), and today there were four players not spotted during the media access window:

CB Devin McCourty
LB Brandon Spikes
LB Jeff Tarpinian
LB Dane Fletcher

Tarpinian is the new name on that list; we won't know what's up with him until the team releases its injury report around 4 p.m., but it isn't a good sign if something is up with him as well; New England is already very thin at the position.

Colleague Monique Walker also reports players are in shells and sweats.
