FOXBORO -- The Patriots once again are in good shape health-wise going into the AFC championship against the Chiefs.

After having perfect attendance all last week, the Patriots opened this week with the same thing Wednesday afternoon on the lower grass field behind Gillette Stadium.

Dont'a Hightower and Shaq Mason both were banged up in Sunday's win over the Chargers, but returned to the game. Defensive end Deatrich Wise missed the game with an ankle injury, but was on the field Wednesday.

The first injury report of the week will be released later in the day.
