FOXBORO -- After missing practice Thursday due to illness, Cordarrelle Patterson returned on Friday.

With the return of Patterson, the Patriots had perfect attendance for their final practice of the week. There was one less player there, as the team has not filled the roster spot vacated by Josh Gordon.

The last session of the week was held inside the Empower Field House, the first time the team has practiced there since new turf was installed.

The final injury report of the week will come out later in the afternoon, which will include game statuses.
