FOXBOROUGH --- The Patriots conducted their first practice of the week -- in full pads -- on Wednesday in preparation for Sunday’s road game against the Miami Dolphins at Sun Life Stadium.

Missing from Wednesday’s workout at the upper fields behind Gillette Stadium were offensive linemen Dan Connolly, Markus Zusevics, Logan Mankins and Sebastian Vollmer. Also absent were tight end Rob Gronkowski and defensive end Chandler Jones.

Two rosters moves made

Fullback James Develin was been promoted from the practice squad to the 53-man roster (he takes the spot that opened by Jermaine Cunningham’s PED suspension). A defensive lineman at Brown, Develin has since made himself into a fullback. He was with the Bengals last year, and was among their final cuts in September. He was signed to New England’s practice squad shortly after his release.

The Patriots also brought back receiver Jeremy Ebert, one of their seventh-round draft picks. Ebert is on the practice squad.
