Edelman, Mankins not seen at practice

By Mike Rodak

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Wide receiver Julian Edelman and guard Logan Mankins were among five players not spotted at the beginning of Patriots practice on Wednesday.

Edelman injured his left hand in Sunday night's loss to Baltimore. He left the game near the start of the second half and did not return.

Mankins was added to the injury report last Thursday as limited with a hip injury. He practiced again on Friday, and played in Sunday's game in Baltimore.

Also missing from practice was defensive tackle Brandon Deaderick, who was added to last Thursday's injury report as limited with an ankle injury. He practiced on Friday but did not travel with the team to Baltimore.

Tight end Aaron Hernandez (ankle) and defensive lineman Justin Francis (ankle), who both were out of practice late last week, remained out of action on Wednesday.

Newly-signed defensive tackle Terrell McClain was on the field wearing No. 93.
