FOXBORO (CBS) – Jerod Mayo was a surprise member of the Patriots practice on Friday.
The Pats linebacker and captain was back out there on the field after less than two weeks of suffering an MCL sprain against the Oakland Raiders.
Now the likely hood of him playing on Sunday is still up in the air, he was listed as “questionable” on the injury report, but it was good to see him back running with the squad.

Running back BenJarvis Green-Ellis and defensive lineman Vince Wilfork both returned after missing Thursday’s session. Green-Ellis was absent with a toe injury, while the Patriots did not practice due to “personal business.”
Both are expected to be good to go for Sunday’s game against the Cowboys.
Safety Josh Barrett was the only player not present at the beginning of practice.
The team also announced Friday they have signed defensive tackle Marcus Harrison. To make room for Harrison on the roster, the Patriots released defensive back Phillip Adams.
