FOXBOROUGH – In what could be a positive sign for the secondary, safety Steve Gregory (thumb) is on the practice field for the Patriots, colleague Michael Whitmer reports.
Gregory, injured against the Steelers, had a black cast on his right hand.
CB Alfonzo Dennard (knee), who recently underwent a procedure on the meniscus in his knee, was at practice but was not moving well. CB Aqib Talib (hip), who did not finish Monday's game, was also on the field.
The only player who was not present was TE Michael Hoomanawanui (knee), who was injured on Monday night.
Players were in sweats and shells.
