The New England Patriots came back to practice on Thursday as they get ready for the game against the Miami Dolphins on Sunday. tight end Rob Gronkowski and quarterback Tom Brady were taken off the injury report, meaning they will be more than ready for Sunday.
Patrick Chung and Dwayne Allen are limited. Offensive tackle Cole Croston was not seen in practice. The good news is that Gronk and Brady were there.
When it comes to the Miami Dolphins, they practiced without corner Xavien Howard as he still treats his knee injury.
“His second interception, he just got hit awkwardly around his knee. We’re going to go through the week and kind of see what it brings. It’s tough to say, ‘Is he going? Is he not?’ I’m not going to know until we get closer to the end. If he’s not our best player, he’s one of our best players. We just have to make sure that we have contingency plans for whatever the scenario calls for,” Dolphins head coach Adam Gase said.

“I’m pretty sure you know what he’s already saying. I’m just trying to make sure that we go through the week the right way to where he doesn’t put himself in a worse position. This is the first time that I would say that he’s not being very compliant with me. He wants to play in this game as bad as anybody. I’m trying to give him a little bit of the ability to show that he can go, but at the same time trying to make sure that get through the week the right way and we don’t lose him for any longer than what we already have,” the head coach said of Amendola.
