Rob Gronkowski was the only member of the Patriots not on the field at the start of Thursday's practice session, according to reports. The tight end, who also did not participate in Wednesday's walk-through, is battling hip and forearm issues. Notables who were back on the field include defensive lineman Kyle Love. In addition, cornerbacks Kyle Arrington, Alfonzo Dennard and Aqib Talib have been banged up lately, but were all on the field at the start of practice Thursday.
