FOXBOROUGH -- Four Patriots were not spotted at today's shells-and-shorts practice, which is being held behind Gillette Stadium on a drizzly, breezy day. "Looks like we have the perfect day to work on Seattle out there," coach Bill Belichick said before practice.
Receiver Julian Edelman, safety Steve Gregory, and tight end Michael Hoomanawanui, who missed Sunday's home win against Denver because of injuries, were not on the field for the portion of practice accessible to the media. Edelman has had a hand injury, Gregory a hip injury, and Hoomanawanui a concussion.
Linebacker Tracy White, who suffered a foot injury against the Broncos and didn't return, was also not at practice.
