FOXBORO -- The Patriots got some good, but expected news at Wednesday's practice.

Offensive tackle Trent Brown returned after missing the last two practices with a reported excused absence. This is good news for the offensive line going up against a powerful Houston defensive front.

Brown returning gave the Patriots perfect attendance at the session, which was held in full pads.

It is worth noting running backs Rex Burkhead and Sony Michel did all the drills the media was permitted to see.

New England will practice Thursday and Friday before Sunday's opener against the Texans.
