FOXBOROUGH -- Patriots receiver Wes Welker, who was held out of last Sunday's loss to the Jets with a knee injury, did not participate in practice Wednesday.

The Patriots missed Welker against the Jets, their offense going without a touchdown for the first time since Dec. 10, 2006.

In addition to Welker, linebacker Jerod Mayo (right MCL) did not practice, while tight end Chris Baker (ankle), center/guard Dan Connolly (back), receiver Julian Edelman (ankle), safety Brandon Meriweather (right ankle), defensive lineman Myron Pryor (calf), safety Matthew Slater (elbow) and cornerback Terrence Wheatley (knee) were limited.

On the Falcons' side, running back Jerious Norwood did not practice Wednesday. He had been knocked out of Sunday's win over the Panthers with a head injury.

Kicker Jason Elam (hamstring) was limited in Wednesday's practice, while tight end Tony Gonzalez (back), safety William Moore (hamstring) and tight end Justin Peelle (back) had full participation.
