FOXBORO -- For a third straight day, running back Brandon Bolden (knee), linebacker Tracy White (foot) and defensive end Trevor Scott (hamstring) were all missing from Patriots practice. The team worked out in sweats and shells inside Gillette Stadium on the main field in advance of their Sunday game against the Bills in Foxboro.
Tight end Aaron Hernandez participated in practice for a third straight day after missing Tuesday's workout due to the birth of his first child. After missing the Oct. 28 game in London against the Rams due to a recurrence of his sprained right ankle, Hernandez is hoping to return on Sunday against the Bills. Hernandez returned from a four-game absence on Oct. 14 against the Seahawks and played against the Jets before sitting out against St. Louis.
After returning from their bye on Tuesday, the Patriots held four practices this week in advance of their game on Sunday. They will also hold a walkthrough on Saturday before taking on Buffalo at 1 o'clock Sunday afternoon at Gillette. For more, visit the Patriots team page at weei.com/patriots .
