FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- There were no changes to the New England Patriots' practice report on Friday, as safety Steve Gregory (thumb) was once again the lone absence from the on-field workout. Gregory has missed each day of practice this week, putting his status in doubt for Monday night when the team plays the Carolina Panthers.
The team’s top trio of cornerbacks -- Aqib Talib (hip), Kyle Arrington (groin) and Alfonzo Dennard (knee) -- were once again limited on Friday, as was tight end Rob Gronkowski (back/forearm/hamstring).
The Patriots will practice again on Saturday and submit an official status report for Monday’s game on Saturday afternoon.
