FOXBOROUGH – Tight end Michael Hoomanawanui was once again the only player not spotted at Patriots practice on Thursday, a sweats-and-shells workout being held on the upper grass field behind Gillette Stadium.
Safety Steve Gregory and cornerback Alfonzo Dennard were both out there, as they were on Wednesday. Both missed Monday’s game.
Former Patriots defensive lineman Mike Wright is attending practice, watching in street clothes. Wright played for the Patriots from 2005-11, and was forced to stop playing after suffering a series of concussions. His playing weight was listed by the Patriots at 295 pounds, but Wright looks like he’s lost 100 pounds: He’s barely recognizable.
