Dennard's absence not injury related

Patriots cornerback Alfonzo Dennard's absence from Wednesday’s practice was not injury related, according to the team’s practice participation report.

Dennard and tight Rob Gronkowski (out for the playoffs with a broken forearm) were the only Patriots not to participate in Wednesday’s session inside Gillette Stadium in cold and rainy conditions.

Five players were limited, including running back Danny Woodhead (thumb) and defensive end Chandler Jones (ankle). Both players were injured in Sunday’s divisional-round victory over the Texans.

Below are the injury reports for both the Patriots and Ravens:
