New England Patriots: Mattew Slater
Wide receiver Danny Amendola (groin) and tight end Rob Gronkowski (back/forearm) were among seven Patriots who were limited due to injury during Wednesday's practice. Matthew Slater (wrist) was the lone injury-related absence.
Amendola has been at practice both days this week but has worked gingerly through drills in limited reps. Gronkowski, meanwhile, continues his rehab and appears to be nearing a return, perhaps as soon as this week; ESPN NFL Insider Ed Werder reported he is 50-50 to play this Sunday.
Slater reportedly suffered a broken wrist during the Week 2 win over the Jets, an injury the team will have to keep in mind in particular as it relates to their special teams, which Slater is a captain of. Cornerback Marquice Cole was also not at practice Wednesday, though the team said it was not injury related.
Offensive lineman Dan Connolly was an addition to the injury report with a finger injury that was sustained against the Jets last Thursday night.
Tight end Zach Sudfeld appears closer to a return; he was a full participant in practice after missing Week 2 with a hamstring injury.
