FOXBOROUGH -- Four injured Patriots missed practice on Wednesday, while quarterback Tom Brady, tight ends Aaron Hernandez and Rob Gronkowski, and receiver Wes Welker were among those limited in their participation.

Receiver Julian Edelman (hand), safety Steve Gregory (hip), tight end Michael Hoomanawanui (concussion), and linebacker Tracy White (foot) were not at practice, which was held behind Gillette Stadium in shells and sweats under an intermittent drizzle.

Welker (ankle) was one of 13 Patriots who were limited, including Brady (right shoulder), Hernandez (ankle), and Gronkowski (hip). Hernandez hasn't played since Sept. 16, but returned to practice last week and could play in Sunday's game at Seattle.

The other Patriots who were limited in practice: running backs Brandon Bolden (knee) and Shane Vereen (foot), defensive linemen Brandon Deaderick (ankle) and Justin Francis (ankle), offensive linemen Nick McDonald (shoulder), Sebastian Vollmer (back/knee), and Logan Mankins (calf/hip), linebacker Dont'a Hightower (hamstring), and cornerback Sterling Moore (knee).

Marshawn Lynch, Seattle's star running back, was limited in Wednesday's practice with a back injury.
