FOXBOROUGH -- Wes Welker and Dan Connolly were both back at Patriots practice on Friday, leaving Logan Mankins as the only Patriot not spotted during the short portion made accessible to the media.

Players were in sweats and shells, and working on the game field inside Gillette Stadium.

Neither Welker nor Connolly practiced Wednesday or Thursday, leaving their availability for Sunday's home game with the Colts up in the air if they weren't on the practice field today. The team will issue an injury report after practice, listing players' status for Sunday's game as either out, doubtful, questionable, or probable.

Welker, who rolled an ankle late in the win over the Bills, typically speaks to the media on Friday, so we'll see if he does so after practice.

Connolly left the Bills game with a back injury. Mankins left with an ankle injury.
