After practicing indoors yesterday, the New England Patriots headed back outside for the second of three practice sessions leading up to the AFC Championship Game against the Denver Broncos. Not only the location changed, the attendance did too: the team had all 53 players on its roster present.

Via patriots.com, let's take a look at today's participation report:

WR Danny Amendola (Knee): LP

TE Scott Chandler (Knee): LP

LB Jamie Collins (Back): LP

SS Nate Ebner (Hand): LP

WR Julian Edelman (Foot): LP

LB Darius Fleming (Back/Shin): LP

LB Jonathan Freeny (Hand): LP

TE Rob Gronkowski (Knee/Back): LP

LB Dont'a Hightower (Knee): LP

OG Tre' Jackson (Knee): LP

DE Chandler Jones (Abdomen/Toe): LP

DE Rob Ninkovich (Shin): LP

WR Matthew Slater (Shin): LP

OC Bryan Stork (Ankle): LP

OT Sebastian Vollmer (Ankle): LP

OT LaAdrian Waddle (Shoulder): LP

QB Tom Brady (Ankle): FP

SS Patrick Chung (Foot): FP

OG Josh Kline (Shoulder): FP

WR Brandon LaFell (Foot): FP

FS Devin McCourty (Ankle): FP

For the first time since December 10, the Patriots have had perfect practice attendance thanks to the return of special teamer and team captain Matthew Slater, who missed yesterday's session because of a shin injury. Even though 16 players participated on a limited basis, the team is still healthier than it has been in a long time.

Aside from Slater's return there was another change to the practice report: starting safety Patrick Chung was added with a foot injury. He was a full participant, though.
