Defensive end Chandler Jones, who hasn’t played in a game since Week 7 because of an injured hip, participated in practice, according to multiple reports. Defensive tackle Sealver Silgia remains on short-term injured reserve with a foot injury, but he participated in his second straight session, as well, the Boston Herald’s Jeff Howe reported.
Wide receiver Aaron Dobson (hamstring) and linebacker Chris White (ankle) were the lone players missing from practice, per reports. Long snapper Danny Aiken, who missed Sunday’s loss to the Green Bay Packers with a concussion, is wearing a red non-contact jersey, according to multiple reports.
