FOXBOROUGH — For the second straight day, cornerback Marquice Cole is the only player not spotted at Patriots practice, which is again being held inside Gillette Stadium.
Cole injured a finger in Sunday’s win at Jacksonville — a game in which he had his only interception of the season — and he missed Thursday’s practice, as well. If he doesn’t practice on Friday, his availability for Sunday’s regular-season finale against the Dolphins could be in jeopardy.
There have been 21 players on this week’s injury report. We’ll know later today if the Patriots think Cole can play, since they must designate everybody on the list as either out, doubtful, questionable, or probable.
