DT Tommy Kelly remains out of practice

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- For the second consecutive day, defensive tackle Tommy Kelly (knee) and running back Leon Washington (ankle) were the only players not spotted at the start of New England Patriots practice.

Each has been off the practice field since sustaining injuries in Week 5, and both have been inactive in the two games since.

As was the case on Wednesday, cornerback Aqib Talib (hip) and wide receiver Danny Amendola (concussion/groin) were again on the practice field. They both took part on a limited basis during Wednesday's workout.

Running back Brandon Bolden spent much of the media portion of practice riding a stationary bike. He has been limited this season because of a knee issue.

The shells-and-helmets practice was the Patriots' second of three on-field sessions this week before hosting the 3-3 Miami Dolphins this Sunday.
