FOXBOROUGH -- Three members of the Patriots defense -- Vince Wilfork, Jerod Mayo, and Kyle Arrington -- were added to Wednesday's injury report, landing on the list for the first time this season.

Wilfork has a foot injury, but was not limited in practice. Mayo (ankle) and Arrington (groin) were both limited, as were seven of their teammates, including tight end Rob Gronkowski and receiver Danny Amendola.

Right tackle Sebastian Vollmer joined special teamer Matthew Slater in missing practice, the only two Patriots who didn't participate in the full-pads workout. Vollmer left last Sunday's game against Tampa Bay with a foot injury; Slater has a wrist injury that caused him to miss Sunday's game.

The other players who were limited: running backs Brandon Bolden (knee) and Leon Washington (thigh), defensive backs Nate Ebner (ankle) and Marquice Cole (hamstring), and offensive lineman Will Svitek (knee).

Tight end Zach Sudfeld was the only other Patriots player on the injury report, with a hamstring injury. Like Wilfork, he was not limited in practice.

For the Falcons:

Did not practice:
RB Steven Jackson (hamstring)
WR Roddy White (ankle)
OT Sam Baker (foot/knee)

Limited participation:
WR Julio Jones (knee)
OL Peter Konz (knee)
OL Garrett Reynolds (knee)

Full participation:
CB Robert McClain (knee)
RB Josh Vaughn (ankle)
