Hernandez at practice again

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez (ankle) was present for the start of his second straight practice on Thursday, held indoors due to inclement weather.

Instead of his normal practice jersey, Hernandez wore his white (road) game jersey with the "NFL International Series" logo that he would have worn in London two weeks ago.

Missing practice for a third straight day were running back Brandon Bolden (knee), defensive end Trevor Scott (hamstring) and linebacker Tracy White (foot).

The Patriots were in shells for the second consecutive day. They practice once more on Friday before their game Sunday against the Buffalo Bills.
