Koppen among those missing at practice

By Mike Rodak

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- The Patriots held a walkthrough practice on Wednesday afternoon inside the Dana Farber Fieldhouse. Players were not in pads for the slower-paced session.

Not present at the walkthrough was center Dan Koppen, who completed Monday night’s game and talked to reporters in the locker room after the game. Fox Sports reported on Wednesday that the Patriots worked out veteran center Jake Grove this week, who was released in September by the Dolphins.

Wednesday’s injury report, which will be released at 4 p.m., will shed more light on any possible injury to Koppen.

Also not present were defensive lineman Mike Wright and cornerback Jonathan Wilhite, who did not play in Monday night’s game. Meanwhile, defensive lineman Myron Pryor returned to practice after missing all of last week’s practices and Monday night’s game.
