FOXBOROUGH – The Patriots checked in with 100 percent attendance at practice Thursday afternoon inside Gillette Stadium.
Running back Mike Gillislee, who hadn’t been seen since injuring his knee against Buffalo in Week 16, and receiver Malcolm Mitchell, who missed Tuesday and Wednesday’s sessions, both were on hand.
Bill Belichick answered, “I don’t know” when asked in the morning if he expected to have Mitchell back at any point this season. Mitchell has been on injured reserve all season as he dealt with lingering knee issues.
Also on hand was linebacker Marquis Flowers, who was absent Wednesday with an illness.
