FOXBORO -- Veteran tackle Will Svitek was the lone returnee from last week's sextet of missing players; linebacker Brandon Spikes, running back Brandon Bolden, offensive lineman Nick McDonald, tight end Rob Gronkowski, and receiver Julian Edelman remain absent.
More guys may miss time after suffering injuries during Tuesday's session.
Per usual, the team divided itself up by the various states of participation. Receiver Mark Harrison and offensive lineman Dan Connolly spent some time on stationary bikes as we've seen, but were joined this week by tight end Brandon Ford. D-lineman Dewayne Cherrington came out onto the field much later than the rest of his teammates. Cornerback Devin McCourty, who's rehabbing a shoulder injury, did a heck of a lot of running on his own.
