FOXBORO — Defensive lineman Sealver Siliga was again the only Patriots player missing from practice on Friday, as the team released its second formal participation report of the week, leading up to their game Monday night in Kansas City. Siliga injured his foot in the first half Sunday against the Raiders and did not return. The formal availability list doesn’t come out until Saturday, 48 hours before the game, but it would appear highly unlikely Siliga is available. The team signed defensive lineman Ben Bass to the practice squad on Friday for added roster depth.

There were no changes to the Patriots practice participation report Friday, as tight end Rob Gronkowski (knee) and linebacker Jamie Collins (thigh) remain on the list were officially limited once again.

The news of the day came on the Kansas City side, where running back Joe McKnight, who had six catches for 64 yards in the win over Miami, missed practice Friday and was ruled out for Monday night. McKnight saw action in Miami after Jamaal Charles missed the game with a high-ankle sprain. Charles practice again on a limited basis but would appear ready to return to action against the Patriots.

Chiefs head coach Andy Reid indicated Thursday that he believes the running back will be ready to play Monday night against the Patriots.

“Yeah, I think so,” Reid said Thursday when asked if Charles would practice this week and play on Monday. “He’s going to practice. We’ll see how he does.”

Additionally for the Chiefs, safety Eric Berry is nursing an ankle injury and did not practice for a second straight day.

Here’s the complete report:

Did not participate
DT Sealver Siliga (ankle)

Limited
DE Michael Buchanan (ankle)
LB Jamie Collins (thigh)
OL Dan Connolly (knee)
CB Alfonzo Dennard (shoulder)
TE Rob Gronkowski (knee)
S Don Jones (hamstring)

FOXBORO — Ben Bass is back with the Patriots.

The Patriots announced Friday that they signed the 24-year-old defensive lineman to the practice squad while released offensive lineman Chris Martin from the practice squad to make room. Bass was at Patriots practice on Friday, wearing No. 93 while Martin was not spotted at practice.

Bass was initially acquired by the Patriots in a trade with the Dallas Cowboys in exchange for DB Justin Green on Aug. 15, 2014. The 6-foot-5, 295-pounder, was released by the Patriots on Aug. 26. He originally joined the Cowboys in 2012 as a rookie free agent out of Texas A&M on May 14, 2012, and spent most of the 2012 season on the Cowboys’€™ practice squad before being activated to the 53-man roster on Nov. 13, 2013.

Bass appeared in two games as a rookie before being placed on injured reserve on Dec. 1, 2012. He went to training camp with the Cowboys in 2013 but was placed on injured reserve prior to the start of the regular season.

Martin, 24, was originally signed by Houston as a rookie free agent out of Central Florida on May 16, 2014. The 6-foot-5, 305-pounder, was released by Houston on May 27 and signed by the Patriots on June 23, 2014. Martin was released on Aug. 30 and signed to the practice squad on Sept. 1.

FOXBORO — For a third straight day, defensive lineman Sealver Siliga was the only member of the 53-man roster not present at the start of practice as the Patriots worked out in sweats and shells Friday on the upper grass fields.

Siliga injured the foot in the first half on Sunday against the Raiders and did not return.

For a second straight day, Tom Brady was spotted stretching in the group of offensive linemen at the start of practice. Brady normally stretches in the middle of the field between the offensive and defensive groups but on Thursday and Friday, he was on the far end with the offensive line.

There was also an addition and subtraction to practice Friday, as a defensive lineman wearing the No. 93 was seen stretching with Vince Wilfork and Michael Buchanan and the defensive line group. Practice squad offensive lineman Chris Martin was not spotted at the start of practice.

The Patriots will finish up their on-field practice prep on Saturday before leaving Sunday for the Monday night game against the Chiefs in Kansas City.
