Chandler Jones at Patriots practice

FOXBOROUGH --- The Patriots conducted their first practice for Sunday’s AFC Championship Game in sweats and shells inside Gillette Stadium and had almost everyone accounted for with the notable exception of tight end Rob Gronkowski and cornerback Alfonzo Dennard.

Gronkowksi, who missed six games during the second half of the season after fracturing his left forearm Nov. 18 against the Indianapolis Colts, re-fractured his forearm in last Sunday’s’ 41-28 divisional victory over the Houston Texans. He underwent season-ending surgery on Monday.
