FOXBOROUGH -- Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was not spotted at Wednesday's practice during the portion open to the media, according to the Globe's Shalise Manza Young.
He wasn't the only player missing. Long snapper Danny Aiken was also not spotted.
Meanwhile, wide receiver Aaron Dobson returned to practice after missing last week's AFC Divisional playoff game with a foot injury. He had been seen walking in a boot last week.
Patriots punter Ryan Allen, who suffered a shoulder injury against the Indianapolis Colts last week, was also at practice.
