Patriots attendance report through two-plus weeks of camp

08.07.14 at 11:43 am ET

With 11 practices in the books — and the preseason opener looming Thursday night — here’s a look at the practice attendance to this point in the summer. (As we’ve previously stated, It’€™s important to remember that in some cases, players like Tyler Gaffney and Greg Orton have been shuffled on and off the active roster since the start of camp — that’€™s one of the reasons why they don’€™t have more official absences than the ones we have listed here.)
