All Patriots players present for practice

FOXBORO -- All Patriots were present for Thursday's "sweats and shells" practice inside the bubble, on a rainy day at Gillette Stadium.

Defensive tackle Kyle Love, who missed Wednesday's practice for non-injury related reasons, was back on the field.

The Pats had 15 players with "limited participation" on Wednesday, one of whom was offensive lineman Logan Mankins.

Bill Belichick was asked about Mankins' health (knee) before Thursday's practice, and he seemed optimistic about all of his banged up players.

"I think we've seen progress out of everybody," said Belichick. "All the guys are out there working. I think each one of them is making progress. We'll see how things go here, after stringing these days together. We'll probably have some game-time decisions. But definitely, a lot of these guys are close. And we're getting better."
When the practice report was released, four players who were listed as limited on Wednesday (and who, indeed, had been on the practice report for weeks) -- Patrick Chung, Julian Edelman, Matt Light and Devin McCourty -- were not only taken off the limited list, but off the practice report completely. None of the four was listed as having an injury, which can only be interpreted as meaning all are now healthy.
However, offensive lineman Marcus Cannon (ankle) was added to the list as a limited participant.
