FOXBORO, Mass. — Safety Patrick Chung, defensive lineman Vince Wilfork and wide receiver Matthew Slater all returned to practice Thursday after each of them missed Wednesday's session.
Chung (knee) and Slater (ankle) were injured Sunday during the Patriots' victory against the Chargers, and Wilfork (not injury related) was presumably given a veteran's day off Wednesday.
However, defensive lineman Mike Wright missed Thursday's practice, which was held on the outside practice fields in full pads. Wednesday's session was in the Dana-Farber Field House in sweats and shells.
Wright was walking around the Patriots' locker room prior to practice, so he might be going through a maintenance day to clear up something minor.
Also, running back Fred Taylor (toe) and safety Jarrad Page (left calf) missed Thursday's session. Taylor hasn't practice since Sept. 24, and Page has missed the last two weeks after suffering an injury against the Ravens.
