Veteran safety Steve Gregory returned to practice with a cast over his surgically repaired right thumb and worked on a limited basis, meaning four of the Patriots' top secondary players are dealing with injury issues as a matchup with the Broncos is nearing.
Linebacker Brandon Spikes, who was in and out of Monday night's game, was added to the injury report with a knee issue. He was limited on Wednesday.
Tight end Michael Hoomanawanui, who left Monday night’s game with a knee injury, was the lone absence from practice.
For Denver, former Patriot Wes Welker sat out practice due to a concussion, as did quarterback Peyton Manning, who has been limiting his practice reps of late due to an ankle issue.
