FOXBORO -- Julian Edelman and Logan Mankins were not present at the start of Wednesday's practice.
Three other players were missing from the shorts and shells session: DL Brandon Deaderick (ankle), TE Aaron Hernandez (ankle), and DL Justin Francis (ankle).
Edelman injured his hand in Sunday's loss to the Baltimore Ravens. He left to be evaluated in the third quarter of the game, and despite returning to the sideline, didn't get back on the field.
Mankins has been on the injury report with a hip injury. This is the first time he's missed since coming off the PUP list in August.
