FOXBORO (CBS) – The New England Patriots hit the practice field on Wednesday in shirts and shells as they get ready for Sunday’s matchup against the 2-0 Buffalo Bills.
It was good to see Zoltan Mesko out there punting. Mesko went down late in Sunday’s game against the Chargers with a leg injury and did not return. He didn’t take part in any drills on Wednesday, but was seen on the field riding the bike.
Rookie corner Ras-I Dowling was also back at practice after leaving Sunday’s game with a leg injury. Both players being on the field was very encouraging for this already banged up Patriots squad.
Missing from practice was Patrick Chung (hand), Sebastian Vollmer (back), Kyle Arrington (concussion), Aaron Henandez (MCL) and Mike Wright (concussion).
Earlier in the day, both Dan Koppen and Myron Pryor were placed on injured reserve with season-ending injuries.
