FOXBOROUGH -- The Patriots returned to the practice field following a day off Wednesday, as they began their preparations for the Jets Monday night.

Listen to your team news NOW.

Three players were missing from the session held in windy conditions on the upper grass fields behind Gillette Stadium: Josh Gordon, Michael Bennett and Matt LaCosse.

Bennett is suspended this week, while LaCosse is reportedly out a few weeks with a sprained MCL suffered against the Giants last Thursday night.

Gordon also suffered a knee injury last week and did not return to the game. He was seen in the locker room last Friday walking with a slight limp and then was seen Tuesday, but was walking much better.

Phillip Dorsett, who missed last week's game with a hamstring injury, was present and moving very well.

The team will practice Friday and Saturday ahead of the Monday night game.
