The Patriots are practicing on the upper fields behind Gillette Stadium Wednesday afternoon in advance of Sunday's game with Jacksonville.

Tom Brady and Mike Rivera were the only players not spotted during the media-access window.

That means that Rob Gronkowski and Alfonzo Dennard, who was injured against the 49ers, were present.

I wouldn't worry about Brady's absence; it's possible he showed up after media were kicked off the field, or it could be a day of rest following a career-high 65 pass attempts on Sunday night. It is the first practice Brady has missed this season.
