FOXBORO — The Patriots added linebacker Brandon Spikes to the Thursday injury report with a knee issue — he was limited — while wide receiver Aaron Dobson, offensive lineman Marcus Cannon and cornerback Alfonzo Dennard were all missing from New England’s Thursday practice.

Spikes was actually absent from Wednesday’s practice with a non-injury issue. Meanwhile, Dobson (foot) and Cannon (ankle) are both working through injuries they suffered in the recent win over the Broncos. And Dennard was part of court proceedings in Nebraska — for more on that, check out our story here.

Dennard was also actually listed as limited because of a knee injury that has dogged him for the last couple of weeks. In addition, cornerbacks Aqib Talib (hip) and Kyle Arrington (groin) and tight end Rob Gronkowski (back/forearm/hamstring) were also among those limited.

Here’s the complete report.
