Patriots Fully Healthy after the Bye Week: Ryan Wendell Returns to Practice

Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

The Patriots had full attendance at practice this week, a positive indicator for the remainder of the season.

Offensive lineman and team captain Ryan Wendell is back after missing two weeks with an illness and he has jumped in with the second team unit. The interior line of Josh Kline, David Andrews, Shaq Mason, and Tre Jackson looks to remain a rotation, with Wendell possibly joining the rotation as a depth option.

Center Bryan Stork is on the short term injured reserve list for another two weeks before he will be able to practice, and a further two weeks until he is eligible to return to the field.

Wendell was the only player that missed practice leading in the week 3 game against the Jaguars. Defensive tackle Dominique Easley was the only player limited in practice and he was the team's leading defensive tackle against Jacksonville. Linebacker Dont'a Hightower, edge defender Trey Flowers, and cornerback Logan Ryan were listed with injuries, but were full participants.
