Cole only player not at start of practice

By Mike Rodak

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- New England Patriots cornerback Marquice Cole (finger) was the lone player not spotted at the start of the team's practice on Thursday, their first full session of the week.

Cole started last Sunday's win over the Jacksonville Jaguars as a fifth defensive back. He left early in the game with the injury, but returned to play a total of 57 snaps in the contest. Cole was listed as limited during Wednesday's team walk-through.

Otherwise, the Patriots had full attendance for Thursday's practice, which was outdoors despite drizzle lingering in the area from Wednesday night's storm. Players were in light shoulder pads.
