Patriots reporters are present for the start of practice, which includes stretching and some agility drills, before departing. Usually when a player is not present for the start of practice, it means he'll miss the entire session.
The Patriots will file their official practice participation report today by 4 p.m. ET.
The team is practicing in full pads today. On Thursday, the practice was held in light shoulder pads and sweatpants.
For the second day in a row, the practice is being held in the Dana Farber Fieldhouse.
Gronkowski was the only Patriots player not present for the start of the practice.
