Perfect attendance for Patriots

FOXBORO — The Patriots had perfect attendance inside Gillette Stadium [1] on Friday as they continued preparations for their AFC championship showdown with the Ravens Sunday evening in Foxboro.

Rob Gronkowski [2] was placed on season-ending injured reserve on Thursday with a broken left arm, leaving the Patriots roster at 52 players. All 52 were bundled up in heavy sweats and shells on Friday on a bitterly cold but sunny day at Gillette.

The Patriots listed only Chandler Jones (ankle) as limited in practice on Thursday, with the remaining 51 players fully participating.
