Deaderick not present at start of Friday practice

FOXBORO -- Brandon Deaderick was added to the Patriots practice absent list Friday. The DL was added to the injury report Thursday as limited with an ankle ailment.
TE Aaron Hernandez and DL Justin Francis, also with ankle injuries, were not at practice for the second day in a row.
It's unclear how long Deaderick will be sidelined, but the Patriots might be shallow on the D-line for Sunday's game in Baltimore.
Players wore shorts and shells working on the upper field behind Gillette Stadium.
