FOXBORO -- For the fifth straight practice, the Patriots had perfect attendance.

The team practiced in full pads on the lower grass field behind Gillette Stadium in cold, cloudy conditions on Thursday, as the team prepares for Sunday's game against the Steelers.

Dwayne Allen and Stephon Gilmore were the only players listed on the injury report Wednesday, but they were full participants. It will be worth watching to see if Rob Gronkowski and Tom Brady's status changes since the session was in full pads.

New England will practice once more on Friday before departing for Pittsburgh Saturday.
