Patriots Training Camp Attendance: 12 Players Sit Out Scrimmage


FOXBORO, Mass. — After a light day Thursday, the New England Patriots ramped up the intensity on Day 8 of training camp by holding their first intrasquad scrimmage of the summer.

Team White, led by Tom Brady, featured the first-team offense, while the first-team defense suited up for Jimmy Garoppolo’s Team Blue.

Offensive tackle Nate Solder, special teamer Matthew Slater and wide receiver Cody Hollister were absent from Friday’s session.

Wide receivers Julian Edelman, Chris Hogan, Malcolm Mitchell, Danny Amendola; tight end James O’Shaughnessy; running backs Mike Gillislee and Rex Burkhead; and safeties Duron Harmon and David Jones were present but did not participate in the scrimmage.

Mitchell, O’Shaughnessy, Gillislee, Burkhead, Harmon and Jones spent the practice running through drills on a separate field along with linebacker Dont’a Hightower, defensive tackle Alan Branch and offensive lineman Andrew Jelks. Hightower and Branch are on the physically unable to perform list, and Jelks is on the non-football injury list.

Edelman, Hogan and Amendola stayed on the main field until the scrimmage began, then exited.

Guard Joe Thuney left with an apparent injury during the second half of the scrimmage.
