Aqib Talib and Matthew Slater not seen at practice

FOXBOROUGH — The Patriots were back on the practice field Monday, and there were three players not spotted during the media-access window: cornerback Aqib Talib, cornerback Alfonzo Dennard, and wide receiver/special teamer Matthew Slater.

And among those present was wide receiver Danny Amendola, but his presence appeared to be purely for show. During warmups and some agility/positional drills that media were present for, Amendola was not moving well at all. He is dealing with a strained groin, and may or may not be facing surgery for a sports hernia.
