Nate Solder missed Thursday’s New England Patriots practice, but not because of an injury.
The Patriots’ injury report released Thursday afternoon listed the offensive tackle’s absence as “not injury-related.” Tight end Rob Gronkowski also was not present at the practice as he recovers from a chest injury suffered during Sunday’s loss to the Seattle Seahawks.
Tight end Martellus Bennett (ankle), defensive tackle Alan Branch (back) and wide receivers Julian Edelman (foot) and Chris Hogan (back) all were listed as limited participants for a second consecutive day.
Defensive lineman Woodrow Hamilton was not listed on the injury report despite not being present for the portion of practice that was open to the media.
The Patriots visit the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday.
