FOXBORO, Mass. — The New England Patriots held their first mandatory minicamp practice at Gillette Stadium on Monday.

Matthew Judon, who did not attend any of the previous organized team activities, was among those back on the field.

“Excited to be out here,” Patriots head coach Jerod Mayo said before practice. “Excited to have all the guys in the building.”

While Mayo said the Patriots had “full attendance,” there were a few missing from the practice field. The absences included a few players known to be recovering from injury.
