Six Patriots sit out Wednesday practice

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- As expected, the New England Patriots listed six players as "did not practice" on their Wednesday injury report.

Guard Logan Mankins (ankle/calf), tight end Rob Gronkowski (forearm/hip), guard Dan Connolly (back), tackle Sebastian Vollmer (back/knee), defensive end Chandler Jones (ankle) and offensive lineman Markus Zusevics (illness) all did not participate.

Meanwhile, wide receivers Julian Edelman and Matthew Slater were both listed as limited in practice, with concussions. Edelman left last Thursday's game against the New York Jets with what was announced as a head injury.

Defensive tackle Kyle Love (knee) was listed as limited in Wednesday's practice and was spotted on the sidelines talking to trainers during the stretching period. He had been listed as fully participating in practice since Oct. 3, with the knee injury.

Safety Steve Gregory (hip) and defensive end Trevor Scott (hamstring) were removed from the injury report after being listed on it for the past several weeks.
