FOXBORO -- Rob Gronkowski was at practice for the second-straight day. The tight end participated in light running and team drills during the media availability window. 

Only one player, Will Svitek, was missing from New England's session, which was done in shells on the fields behind Gillette. Svitek's absence was expected as the offensive lineman was seen in the locker room wearing a knee brace on Sunday. 

New jersey numbers are noted to reflect recent roster moves: Offensive lineman Chris Barker wore 64, center Braxston Cave wore 68, defensive tackle A.J. Francis is No. 69, and linebacker Chris White is 59. There was also a player wearing 71 out on the field, likely a new practice squad pick-up, but the team hasn't yet announced a name to go with the number.
