Danny Amendola and Rob Gronkowski among seven limited for Patriots

09.18.13 at 4:17 pm ET

Danny Amendola (groin), Rob Gronkowski (back/forearm) and running back Brandon Bolden were among the seven players listed as “limited” for the Patriots at Wednesday’s practice.

For the second straight practice session, Amendola was spotted on the field going through drills with his teammates. During the portion of practice the media is allowed to observe, he could be seen working gingerly  through a series of drills, clearly not at full speed.

Amendola, Bolden and Gronkowski were part of a limited list that also included offensive linemen Dan Connolly (finger) and Will Svitek (knee) defensive back Nate Ebner (ankle) and running back Leon Washington (thigh).

As expected, the only two missing were cornerback Marquice Cole (not injury related) and special teamer Matthew Slater (wrist). It was reported that Cole was absent because of the birth of his child, while Slater’s wrist injury is expected to keep him on the shelf for multiple weeks.

Here’s the complete report:
