FOXBOROUGH -- Receiver Danny Amendola returned to practice for the Patriots on Wednesday and was limited in his participation.
Amendola had suffered a concussion that forced him to miss Sunday's game against the New York Jets.
Cornerback Aqib Talib was also on the practice field -- he practiced on Friday, too -- but was limited with a hip injury suffered on Oct. 13, the same day Amendola was injured. Talib didn't wear any protective padding in his pants for the full-pads practice.
Seven other players were limited: running back Brandon Bolden (knee), offensive lineman Marcus Cannon (shoulder), receivers Julian Edelman (thigh) and Matthew Slater (wrist), tight ends Rob Gronkowski (back/forearm) and Michael Hoomanawanui (knee), and defensive back Tavon Wilson (hamstring).
Defensive tackle Tommy Kelly (knee) and running back Leon Washington (ankle) were the only players to miss practice. The other three Patriots on the injury report -- cornerbacks Kyle Arrington (groin) and Devin McCourty (shoulder) and defensive end Rob Ninkovich (groin) -- were listed under full participation.
For the Dolphins:
LB Dannell Ellerbe (shoulder)
WR Brandon Gibson (shoulder)
OT Bryant McKinnie (knee)
QB Ryan Tannehill (shoulder)
