ATLANTA -- The Patriots' recent run of perfect health appears to have come to an end.

The Patriots did not have a clean injury report like they did last week when they practiced back in New England. Defensive tackle Malcom Brown was added with a calf injury and was a limited participant in Wednesday's session.

According to pool reporter Jenny Vrentas of MMQB, the team wore helmets and shells for an 88-minute session in Georgia Tech’s indoor practice facility, just over a mile from the team's hotel.

“He did some stuff early in practice today,” Belichick said of Brown. “Everybody else was good to go.”

Belichick noted because of the extra week back home they are much further ahead than they usually are on a Wednesday.

“We are way ahead of where we normally are on Wednesday, but we are trying to keep it as a Wednesday-Thursday-Friday and get into our normal routine, which has worked pretty well for us this year,” he said.

The team will practice indoors Thursday and Friday.

“What our schedule is, what we need to do between now and tomorrow in terms of preparation, physical and mental,” Belichick said. “We are getting there. We’ve still got four days, really. But we are getting there.”
