FOXBOROUGH — The Patriots had 100 percent attendance at Friday’s practice, a shorts-and-shells session.

Running backs Rex Burkhead (concussion) and Sony Michel (knee) were again limited at the workout and were declared questionable for Sunday. The same goes for right tackle Marcus Cannon (calf) and cornerback Keion Crossen (hamstring).

The Patriots only two healthy running backs are James White and recently signed Kenjon Barner.

Tight end Jacob Hollister, who missed the opener because of a hamstring ailment, was upgraded to full participant and likely will make his season debut against Jacksonville.

Safety Nate Ebner (knee) also was upgraded to a full participant.
