Chad Ochocinco Misses First Practice With Patriots


FOXBORO, Mass. — Wide receiver Chad Ochocinco missed his first practice as a member of the Patriots on Friday, and he has been listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Eagles.

This was the first time Ochocinco had appeared on an injury report since joining the Patriots.

It's unclear if Ochocinco's absence and availability has anything to do with Thursday's signing of wide receiver Tiquan Underwood.

Linebackers Brandon Spikes (knee) and Dane Fletcher (thumb) were also absent from practice, and they have been ruled out for Sunday. Spikes has missed three full weeks of practice, and Fletcher has been out for six weeks.

Ochocinco is one of 11 players listed as questionable for the game in Philly, including wide receiver Deion Branch (hip), safety Patrick Chung (foot), center Dan Connolly (groin), linebacker Gary Guyton (shoulder), safety James Ihedigbo (shoulder), left tackle Matt Light (ankle), cornerback Devin McCourty (shoulder), wide receiver Taylor Price (hamstring), wide receiver Matthew Slater (shoulder) and tackle Sebastian Vollmer (back).

Guard Brian Waters (knee) and wide receiver Wes Welker (knee) are listed as probable.

The Patriots practiced in sweats and shells.
