By Mike Rodak

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- The New England Patriots had perfect attendance for their Friday practice, held indoors due to inclement weather.

Linebacker Mike Rivera, who had missed the previous two practices with an ankle injury, returned to practice on Friday.

Tight end Rob Gronkowski was on the practice field for a third straight day. His official status for Sunday's game in Jacksonville will be announced when the injury report is released later Friday.
