FOXBORO, Mass. — The Patriots had a packed house at Wednesday’s walkthrough.
Quarterback Tom Brady participated in a Wednesday session for the first time in three weeks, and the Patriots were only missing four players after fielding a limited amount of players during last week’s string of practices.
Right guard Dan Connolly (concussion), defensive lineman Mike Wright (concussion), linebacker Tully Banta-Cain (groin) and defensive lineman Ron Brace were absent from the walkthrough, which took place in the Dana-Farber Field House.
Head coach Bill Belichick said earlier Wednesday that he expects to get his team back outside later in the week, and attendance could dip again when that happens. While it’s a good sign that the Patriots were only missing four players, walkthroughs always have higher attendance because there is less physical strain on injured players.
