BOSTON (CBS) – The New England Patriots had their two dynamic tight ends back at practice on Thursday.

Aaron Hernandez returned to the practice field, the first time he’s practiced since suffering an ankle injury against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 2.

Hernandez was expected to miss up to six weeks when he limped off the field back on September 16. He was not at full speed, but practiced running routes in several drills as the team practiced in shorts and shells.

Also returning was Rob Gronkowski, who missed Wednesday’s session to rest a sore hip. Tight end Michael Hoomanawanui (concussion) also returned after missing Wednesday’s practice.
