Gronkowski, Michel Present at Practice
By Kevin Duffy
FOXBORO -- The Patriots returned to the practice field on Wednesday, and a pair of injured offensive starters were present.
Running back Sony Michel and tight end Rob Gronkowski, who both sat out of the Week 9 win over Green Bay, were spotted on the field.
Michel has missed two consecutive games with a knee injury.
Gronkowski hasn’t played in two of the past three games due to ankle and back issues.
The Pats were in sweats for a walkthrough, so it was difficult to take full attendance. The team was required to release its first injury report of the week Wednesday afternoon.
Right guard Shaq Mason was present, as well. Mason missed all three practices last week with a calf injury and did not suit up for the Packers game.
Finally, running back James White, who was banged up in Sunday’s win, took part in the practice.
The Patriots (7-2) travel to Nashville to face the Titans (4-4) on Sunday before their Week 11 bye.
