Tackle Nate Solder was back on the field for practice Thursday morning, while wide receiver Aaron Dobson was the only one absent as the Patriots continue preparation for Sunday’s game against the Dolphins in Miami.

Solder, who was listed on the Patriots practice report Wednesday with a concussion, is part of a relatively thin group of players New England have at the tackle position — with starting right tackle Sebastian Vollmer on IR, the team has pressed Marcus Cannon into a starting role, but Cannon has been hobbled as of late because of an ankle issue. In addition, veteran tackle Will Svitek has seen lots of time at tackle with the recent run of injury.

The team was in sweats and shells for the session, which was held inside the practice bubble.
