FOXBORO, Mass. — It appears Devin McCourty has not been cleared to practice yet.
The New England Patriots’ starting free safety was missing from practice for the second consecutive session after suffering a concussion in Sunday’s win over the Baltimore Ravens.
Wide receiver Josh Boyce was missing from practice for the fifth consecutive session. He suffered an ankle injury against the Miami Dolphins two weeks ago on a kick return.
Since neither player has begun practicing this week, it’s looking unlikely they will play Sunday against the Buffalo Bills.
The rest of the Patriots were present Thursday. The players were in sweats and shells and practicing on a snowy lower practice field.
