The Patriots are on the lower grass field for practice today, their first on-field work of the week.
Colleague Michael Whitmer reports that all 53 players are present and accounted for, including Logan Mankins, who missed the final game of the season with a sprained MCL, and Sebastian Vollmer, who has not played or practiced since the Pats faced the Eagles on Nov. 27.
Tom Brady, Wes Welker and Marcus Cannon, who also missed time last week, were also present for the media-access portion of the session.
New/old offensive assistant Josh McDaniels was on the field with the rest of the coaching staff, chatting with Bill Belichick.
Players were in full pads for the first time in just over a month.
