The Patriots got some good news at practice Wednesday afternoon.

According to those on site, Rex Burkhead and Alan Branch returned after missing several weeks. This indicates they should be good to go for the divisional round on Jan. 13.

Two players were missing, as defensive end/outside linebacker Eric Lee and running back Mike Gillislee missed the session. Gillislee also missed Sunday's game against the Jets, while Lee dealt with an ankle issue all last week.

The Patriots are scheduled to hold one more practice Thursday before getting the weekend off.
