FOXBORO -- There were four Patriots players missing from Friday's practice at Gillette Stadium in preparation for Sunday's game with the Indianapolis Colts.
Wide receiver Brandon Tate, cornerback Jonathan Wilhite, offensive lineman Rich Ohrnberger and defensive lineman Myron Pryor were all absent from the start of the session, which was held on the practice field instead of inside the actual stadium, which is where Friday's practice usually takes place.
Meanwhile, safety Jarrad Page returned to practice. He hasn't played since Week 6.
