FOXBORO -- Patriots cornerback Devin McCourty returned to Patriots practice on Thursday for the first time since suffering a rib injury on Sunday in Chicago.
He was listed as a "limited" participant in practice.
The practice was held outdoors, and saw four players missing the start of the session. Those players were all defensive linemen: Myron Pryor, Gerard Warren, Ron Brace, and Mike Wright.
