ESPN Boston reported from the New England Patriots' practice on Wednesday that Chandler Jones and Danny Woodhead were both on the field. Jones and Woodhead both sustained injuries (ankle and thumb, respectively) in Sunday's game against the Houston Texans and didn't return to action. This is positive, especially in the case of Chandler Jones, who Bill Belichick didn't say much about yesterday.
However, Alfonzo Dennard (listed by ESPN Boston as dealing with a hamstring/knee injury) was absent at today's practice. Dennard was on the field for the final seconds of the game on Sunday, so his absence from practice came as a surprise to the media.
