The Patriots are currently holding their first of two practices this week on the lower field behind Gillette Stadium.

There were three players not spotted during the media-access window: Tom Brady, Rob Ninkovich, and Dont'a Hightower.

Since this is their bye week the Patriots are not required to submit an injury report, but it is likely safe to assume that Brady is simply getting a veteran's day off - when he does get a day of rest, it is always on a Wednesday.

Ninkovich left Sunday's game with Miami with a hip injury; Hightower has been on the injury report with hamstring and shoulder injuries, which could be the reason for his absence.

Players were in shells and sweats.
