Jeff Thomas Among Five Players Absent From Patriots’ First Padded Practice


FOXBORO, Mass. — The New England Patriots’ highest-profile undrafted free agent is absent from the team’s first padded practice of the offseason.

Wide receiver Jeff Thomas, defensive tackle Beau Allen, rookie linebacker Anfernee Jennings and running backs Sony Michel and Lamar Miller, both of whom on the physically unable to perform list, weren’t spotted at Monday’s training camp practice.

New tight ends Alex Ellis and Paul Butler both were present. Ellis wore No. 88, while Butler sported No. 82.

The Patriots began practicing last Wednesday, but this is the first session open to non-internal media.
