NFL: New England Patriots-OTA Bob DeChiara-USA TODAY Sports

The New England Patriots returned to the practice fields behind Gillette Stadium today to hold their third and final practice of this year’s mandatory minicamp. Conditions were once more hot but generally perfect for spring football — and the session, which was shorter than the last two, was again a busy one in all three phases of the game.

Let’s recap what happened:

Attendance

8 players were not spotted during the session: RB Sony Michel, RB Nick Brossette, WR Demaryius Thomas, OT Yodny Cajuste, DE Deatrich Wise Jr, CB J.C. Jackson, SS Patrick Chung, SS Nate Ebner (source)

1 new player was added to the list of absentees: CB J.C. Jackson (source)

1 player was present but limited: OT Isaiah Wynn (source)

Injuries

Fortunately, no players appeared to have suffered injuries today.

Offense

The quarterbacks performed as follows during 11-on-11 drills (source):

Tom Brady: 6 of 10

For the third straight day, Joe Thuney lined up at left tackle in place of the still-rehabbing Isaiah Wynn. Thuney also spent time with the tackles during individual session, for what it’s worth. (source)

Undrafted rookie Jakobi Meyers saw some side-action with Brian Hoyer, while Tom Brady and first-rounder N’Keal Harry worked alongside them. (source)

Despite not having to go against Stephon Gilmore, Harry did not see any passes thrown his way in team drills. (source)

Five pass catchers registered drops today: Julian Edelman, N’Keal Harry, Braxton Berrios, Matt LaCosse, Jakobi Meyers (source)

Gilmore and Collins in particular looked very good again — the third straight day that this was the case: they concluded minicamp in style. (source)
