Friday practice report

Globe colleague Shalise Manza Young reports that the Patriots’ last practice of the season in Foxborough is missing only tight end Rob Gronkowski, who is reportedly suffering from a high left ankle sprain suffered during the AFC Championship game.

Once again the team is inside the Dana-Farber Fieldhouse, but this time in full pads. Doesn’t make any sense to practice outside in the rain when Super Bowl XLVI will be played in a climate-controlled, retractable-roof stadium.

The team is scheduled to leave for Indianapolis on Sunday, following a public send-off at Gillette Stadium, which is free to spectators and will begin at noon.
