Injury report: Fleming, Ebner still out

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- The New England Patriots have no changes from Wednesday’s injury report, though rookie offensive lineman Cameron Fleming and core special-teamer Nate Ebner missed their second straight day of practice with finger injuries on Thursday.

Linebackers Jamie Collins (thigh) and Dont'a Hightower (knee) and defensive end Chandler Jones (shoulder) continue to be listed as limited participants at practice.

Collins, Hightower and Jones are key members of the Patriots’ front seven on defense and it is important to note that they all wore full pads on a day where the defense was working on the run game.

Cornerback Alfonzo Dennard (shoulder) remains limited and tight end Rob Gronkowski (knee) had his second consecutive day of full participation at practice.
