For the first time in a long time, the Patriots had a full boat of players at practice Friday, as every member of the active roster -- tight end Rob Gronkowski included -- participated in the session on the game field at Gillette Stadium.
But the full practice shouldn't be confused with a fully healthy team, as the Patriots listed an eye-popping 19 players as questionable for their Sunday night game against the 49ers.
With just 52 players on the active roster, here's a shot at projecting the six inactives for tomorrow's contest.
Tight end Rob Gronkowski
Quick-hit: Despite his return to practice, the team may opt to sit Gronkowski this Sunday to buy him more time to recover.
Offensive lineman Nick McDonald
Quick-hit: McDonald continues to be bothered by a shoulder injury, and with Marcus Cannon emerging as a depth-level option at guard, the Patriots have both him and Donald Thomas to use in an injury situation.
Offensive lineman Markus Zusevics
Quick-hit: The Patriots are in good shape along the offensive line, as the aforementioned Cannon is capable to step in as a reserve tackle if needed.
Fullback James Develin
Quick-hit: With Brandon Bolden back in the mix, the Patriots' backfield is well-stocked already.
Defensive back Derrick Martin
Defensive lineman Ron Brace
Quick-hit: Brace has been a recent inactive due to an elbow injury that continues to limit him in practice.
