FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- After suffering a concussion against the Dolphins in Week 15, Patriots left tackle Nate Solder did not participate in the team's Wednesday practice.

This is the second straight week that Solder has suffered a concussion and the second straight Wednesday that he has missed practice.

Rookie receiver Josh Boyce also missed Wednesday's practice with a right ankle injury. He suffered the injury late in Week 15, being replaced by veteran Austin Collie.

Rookie receivers Aaron Dobson (foot) and Kenbrell Thompkins (hip), who have combined to miss five straight games between them, were both limited in practice.

A total of 13 Patriots, including quarterback Tom Brady (right shoulder), linebacker Brandon Spikes (knee) and cornerbacks Aqib Talib (hip), Alfonzo Dennard (knee/shoulder) and Kyle Arrington (groin), were listed as limited.

Field Yates has previous experience interning with the New England Patriots on both their coaching and scouting staffs. A graduate of Wesleyan University (CT), he is a regular contributor to ESPN Boston's Patriots coverage and ESPN Insider.
