This comes following Wednesday's practice, which was held indoors inside the Dana-Farber Fieldhouse and was a walkthrough. Julian Edelman (thigh) popped up on the injury report for the first time this season, and was limited in the practice. Edelman landed awkwardly on his side during the first quarter of last Sunday's game, and has taken a beating all season long, so it really seemed like a matter of time before his name appeared. The injury did not seem to phase Edelman as he missed just a few plays. Offensive lineman Cameron Fleming (finger/ankle) missed the practice in its entirety. Fleming injured his ankle late in Sunday's game and did not return, while he suffered the finger injury Week 4 in Kansas City -- the injury has been on the injury report since that game. Last Sunday was Fleming's first action since Week 4. Finally, offensive lineman Marcus Cannon (hip) was limited. It was the first time he's appeared on the injury report this season. Cannon saw limited action Sunday as a substitute offensive lineman. Chandler Jones (hip) once again did not practice and Matthew Slater (shoulder) was removed from the injury report. Defensive lineman Sealver Siliga returned to practice for the first time since being placed on injured reserve designated for return after injuring his foot in Week 3. The Patriots have 21 days to decide whether or not to add him to the active roster or shut him down. For the Lions, wide receiver Calvin Johnson (ankle), defensive lineman Nick Fairley (knee) and running back Joique Bell (ankle) did not practice.
