FOXBORO, Mass. — Recently acquired New England Patriots defensive linemen Jerel Worthy and Ben Bass made brief appearances during the team’s Thursday morning walk-through with the Philadelphia Eagles.
Worthy, sporting No. 97, and Bass, in sweats, arrived on the practice field with the rest of their new teammates before leaving with trainers for rehab work. Worthy is dealing with a back injury, and Bass has been held out with a hamstring ailment.
Starting left tackle Nate Solder walked off the practice field with a trainer near the end of practice for undisclosed reasons.
Linebacker Jerod Mayo was held out of his third consecutive practice. It’s unclear what is keeping the defensive captain sidelined.
Linebackers Cameron Gordon and James Anderson, running back Tyler Gaffney, tight ends D.J. Williams and Michael Hoomanawanui, offensive lineman Chris Martin, wide receiver Jeremy Gallon and defensive tackles Chris Jones and Sealver Siliga also didn’t practice with the Patriots.
Safeties Kanorris Davis and Tavon Wilson, linebacker Ja’Gared Davis and center Bryan Stork worked with trainers on the lower field while the rest of the team participated in the walk-through.
