Matt Slater, Julian EdelmanFOXBORO, Mass. — The Patriots may not be at full health, but based on attendance at practice, they’re getting there.

Marquice Cole was back at practice. He had missed Wednesday’s session due to a personal matter.

Danny Amendola and Rob Gronkowski were on the field. It was tough to gauge their health, as the portion of practice open to the media concluded after stretching.
