Patriots Practice Attendance Perfect Three Days Out From Season Opener


FOXBORO, Mass. — Everyone who should have been on the field for New England Patriots practice was Thursday afternoon.

All 53 players on the Patriots’ active roster and all 10 practice-squad members were in attendance for the beginning of practice. The Patriots’ season opener is Sunday night against the Cardinals, and the team will get in one more practice Friday morning before leaving for Arizona in the afternoon.

No new players were added to the Patriots’ roster or practice squad.

Tight end Rob Gronkowski, who was listed as limited with a hamstring injury in Wednesday’s practice participation and injury report, spent time with head trainer Jim Whalen during the beginning of practice.

Patriots coach Bill Belichick’s daughter, Amanda, the women’s lacrosse coach at Holy Cross, was a special guest at practice.
