An illness caused New England Patriots running back LeGarrette Blount to miss practice today, Jeff How of the Boston Herald
The bye week was kind to Martellus Bennett, however, who was removed from the report after being listed on it since injuring his ankle in Week 5. He'd also had a shoulder issue.
Dont'a Hightower's knee was also taken off the report, so the Patriots' decision to keep him out in Week 16 may have been the right call.
Alan Branch missed the previous two sessions because his wife gave birth to their son, but he returned today and was not listed on the injury report.
