Rookie defensive lineman Keion White practiced for the first time since suffering a concussion in New England’s Week 6 road loss to the Las Vegas Raiders. First-year receiver/quarterback Malik Cunningham, who was released Tuesday, also was on the field after rejoining the practice squad.

Sunday’s kickoff from Hard Rock Stadium is scheduled for 1 p.m. ET.
