FOXBORO — It appears LeGarrette Blount’s absence at practice is not a big issue.

Blount missed practice on Wednesday due to an illness. He was the only player to miss practice — the second of the week.

Malcolm Mitchell was limited with a knee injury after missing the regular-season finale against the Dolphins.

The team had four players practicing in full, including Tom Brady (thigh) and Danny Amendola (ankle).

Amendola practicing in full is a good sign as he hasn’t played in a game since Dec. 4. It’s also worth noting Dont’a Hightower and Martellus Bennett were removed. Bennett had been on it since Week 5.

Here is the full practice report.
