Several missing from Patriots' practice

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Cornerback Jemea Thomas, undrafted rookie linebacker Cameron Gordon, defensive tackles Ben Bass and Chris Jones, and offensive lineman Chris Martin were not spotted at the start of the New England Patriots practice on Tuesday.

Patriots starting left guard Logan Mankins was also not at practice likely because he was traded to Tampa Bay.

Gordon was seen in full pads at Monday’s practice for the first time since participating in the first six practices of training camp.

Bass missed his second practice in a row, while Martin remains on the non-football injury list.

With the first roster-cut deadline looming at 4 p.m. ET Tuesday, wide receivers Wilson Van Hooser and Derrick Johnson, defensive back Travis Hawkins and linebacker Deontae Skinner, who were all reportedly released, were not seen at practice.
