All present for start of practice

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- The Patriots were back on the practice field on Thursday afternoon, holding their third of the week prior to Sunday's divisional playoff tilt with the Houston Texans.

Every player was present for the start of the session, marking the second straight day the team has had perfect attendance at practice.

Players were in light shoulder pads, practicing outdoors in mild conditions. Temperatures are expected to continue to rise into the weekend, peaking in the mid-50s in time for Sunday's game.

The Patriots will release an updated practice report on Thursday afternoon, and will practice for a final time on Friday.
