Run-stuffer Warren at practice

Defensive lineman Ty Warren, whose availability will be key for the New England Patriots against the New York Jets' top-ranked rushing offense, was present for the media-access portion of practice Thursday. Warren missed last Sunday’s loss to the Colts with an ankle injury.

Running back Fred Taylor (knee), linebacker Rob Ninkovich (knee), guard Stephen Neal (head), linebacker Tully Banta-Cain (rib/groin), and defensive end Jarvis Green (knee) were the players not spotted at the media-access portion of practice.

Of note is that left tackle Matt Light (knee) and running back Sammy Morris (knee) were on the field for the third straight practice.
