As expected, tight end Rob Gronkowski was not present for the media-access portion of practice; Bill Belichick said during his press conference earlier that Gronkowski, who suffered an ankle sprain against the Ravens, would not practice today.

Colleague Michael Whitmer says Gronkowski is the only player not present for practice, which is being held inside the Dana-Farber Fieldhouse. Players are in shells and sweats/shorts.

Also, Carson Butler, whom the team announced this morning has been re-signed to the practice squad (Dorin Dickerson was played on practice squad IR yesterday), was not at practice.
