With the New England Patriots preparing for their most important game of the season to date, the team has perfect attendance in practice today. Special teamer Matthew Slater (bruised shin) and offensive guard Tre' Jackson (MCL sprain) missed the Wednesday practice with injuries, although the former's injury does not seem to be very concerning.

ESPN Patriots beat writer Mike Reiss also added the note that today's practice is held in full pads and that the team is practicing fundamentals, especially in run defense. The team having perfect attendance in a full pad practice is an encouraging sign of the team's health going into the AFC Championship Game. The key for the Patriots to stop the Denver Broncos offense is to contain the Broncos running game and their outside zone runs.

Injury reports will be released later today and Offensive Jazz Interference has you covered on that front.
