CB Cole (finger) misses practice

By Mike Rodak

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- The New England Patriots were without cornerback Marquice Cole (finger) for their second and final practice of the week on Friday.

Cole was injured in last Sunday's game in Jacksonville, but returned to action. Fellow cornerbacks Aqib Talib (hip) and Alfonzo Dennard (hamstring/knee) have also been hobbled, so the Patriots could be thin at the position for their regular-season finale on Sunday.

For the second consecutive day, players were in light shoulder pads, and practice was outdoors in cold conditions.
