FOXBOROUGH -- Offensive guard Logan Mankins and defensive end Brandon Deaderick were new additions to the injury report, both limited in practice today with hip and ankle injuries, respectively.

Two Patriots players did not practice: tight end Aaron Hernandez and defensive tackle Justin Francis, both of whom have ankle injuries. Hernandez is expected to be out for a number of weeks; Francis was limited in practice on Wednesday.

In addition to Mankins and Deaderick, eight other Patriots were limited: offensive linemen Dan Connolly (concussion), Nick McDonald (shoulder), and Sebastian Vollmer (back), cornerbacks Sterling Moore (knee) and Alfonza Dennard (hamstring), running back Shane Vereen (foot), tight end Danniel Fells (shin), and receiver Brandon Lloyd (thigh).

Tackle Jah Reid (calf) was the only Ravens player who did not practice.
