FOXBOROUGH -- Guard Logan Mankins, who missed last Sunday's game in Buffalo, was listed with a calf/hip injury on Wednesday's injury report, which confirmed that five Patriots missed practice: tight ends Aaron Hernandez (ankle), Rob Gronkowski (hip), and Michael Hoomanawanui (concussion), safety Steve Gregory (hip), and receiver Julian Edelman (hand).

Mankins, whose injury last week was listed a hip, was one of 10 Patriots who were limited. The others: quarterback Tom Brady (right shoulder), running backs Shane Vereen (foot) and Brandon Bolden (knee), defensive linemen Brandon Deaderick (ankle) and Justin Francis (ankle), offensive linemen Sebastian Vollmer (back) and Nick McDonald (shoulder), linebacker Dont’a Hightower (hamstring), and cornerback Sterling Moore (knee).

No Broncos missed practice. Linebacker Nate Irving (concussion) and guard Chris Kuper (forearm) were limited.
