Tomorrow, following their send-off rally at Gillette Stadium, the New England Patriots will travel to Minneapolis. Today, for the final time this season, the team held a practice session at its facilities. And unlike the previous sessions this week, the Patriots did have perfect attendance today as all 53 members of the team's active roster were present.
The lone absentee yesterday, defensive tackle Malcom Brown, returned today after being a no-show for all previous three practices this week. The 23-year old was listed on the injury report with an ankle injury and while he likely is still limited, his return to the field can be seen as a positive step towards Brown playing in Super Bowl LII against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Tight end Rob Gronkowski and defensive edge Deatrich Wise Jr. were also present for the session. The duo is currently in the concussion protocol and returned to practice yesterday after not being spotted earlier during the week. Their official updated statuses, just like Brown's, will be released on Wednesday.
