FOXBORO -- Alfonzo Dennard was back at practice Friday after missing Thursday's session, and being limited Wednesday, with a knee injury.
Otherwise, the same trio of players who have been out all week were not spotted for the third consecutive day: Offensive lineman Marcus Cannon, receiver Aaron Dobson, and tight end Michael Hoomanawanui. Cannon (ankle) and Dobson (foot) suffered injuries last Sunday in New England's win over Denver. Hoomanawanui hurt a knee in the team's Week 11 loss to Carolina and has been out since.
New England's final workout of the week was held in shells on the upper grass field behind Gillette Stadium. A full practice participation and game status report will be released around 4 p.m.
