FOXBORO — Defensive back and special teamer Nate Ebner and offensive lineman Cameron Fleming have been ruled out for Sunday night’s game against the Bengals.

But the real news of the day from the injury report came in the form of the addition of rookie defensive lineman Dominique Easley, who was limited and is questionable with a knee injury.

Four other Patriots were again limited Friday, led by linebackers Dont’a Hightower (knee) and Jamie Collins (thigh). Also limited Friday was defensive end Chandler Jones (shoulder) and defensive back Alfonzo Dennard (shoulder). Hightower, Collins, Jones and Dennard are all questionable.

As for the Bengals, star linebacker Vontaze Burfict returned to practice Friday for the first time this week, but is officially listed as one of three “doubtful” Bengals for Sunday.

Burfict suffered concussions in Cincinnati’s first two games and missed their win over Tennessee. A.J. Green was added to the Bengals injury report Friday with a toe ligament injury suffered in Week 2 against Atlanta. But Green is still listed as probable.

FOXBORO — For a third straight day, Nate Ebner and Cameron Fleming were the only two players not spotted at the start of Patriots practice on Friday outside Gillette Stadium.

The two were also missing from Wednesday and Thursday practices, with each player suffering from what the team described in the injury report as a finger injury. With both missing all three days of practice, it’s likely neither would be available against Cincinnati Sunday night. The injury report (along with their chances for playing) will be released later Friday afternoon.

Also missing from the sweats and shells workout on the upper grass fields was practice squad offensive lineman Caylin Hauptmann.

Ebner, a core special teamer, has seen more and more time as a defensive back over the first four weeks of the season. Meanwhile, Fleming, a rookie offensive lineman out of Stanford, made his first NFL start last Monday against the Chiefs at right guard.

Also in attendance at practice Friday were Cris Collinsworth and Michele Tafoya of NBC “Sunday Night Football” broadcast crew. The game will kick off at 8:30 p.m. Sunday and be seen nationally on the network.

For a second straight day, defensive back and special teamer Nate Ebner and offensive lineman Cameron Fleming were the only two Patriots not practicing. Both are dealing with finger issues.

Four Patriots were again limited, led by linebackers Dont’a Hightower (knee) and Jamie Collins (thigh). Also limited Thursday were defensive end Chandler Jones (shoulder) and defensive back Alfonzo Dennard (shoulder).

The Patriots returned outdoors Thursday for a practice on the upper grass fields after a walkthrough inside the field house on Wednesday.

As for the Bengals, star linebacker Vontaze Burfict missed his second straight day. He suffered concussions in Cincinnati’s first two games and missed their win over Tennessee. Offensive linemen Clint Boling and Andrew Whitworth were given “veteran days” by the Bengals as they rest them for Sunday night. Defensive ends Robert Geathers and Margus Hunt returned to practice on Thursday after missing Wednesday.

The Patriots made a few changes to the struggling offensive line prior to Monday’s game against the Chiefs by starting two rookies — Bryan Stork at center and Cameron Fleming at right guard (his first time ever playing the position), as well as moving Dan Connolly to left guard.

In addition, the team deactivated Jordan Devey, who had started the first three games of the season. Even with the changes, it did not stick as the team continued to rotate players in and out almost every series throughout the game trying to find a combination that works.

Here is our breakdown of the line (left tackle to right tackle) for each of their 11 drives:

  • Drive 1: Nate Solder, Dan Connolly, Bryan Stork, Cameron Fleming, Sebastian Vollmer (Punt)
  • Drive 2: Solder, Connolly, Stork, Fleming, Vollmer (Punt)
  • Drive 3: Solder, Connolly, Stork, Fleming, Vollmer (Punt)
  • Drive 4: Solder, Connolly, Stork, Fleming, Marcus Cannon (Punt)
  • Drive 5: Solder, Connolly, Stork, Fleming, Vollmer (Punt)
  • Drive 6: Solder, Connolly, Stork, Fleming, Vollmer (Fumble)
  • Drive 7: Solder, Connolly, Stork, Fleming, Vollmer (Interception)
  • Drive 8: Cannon, Connolly, Stork, Fleming, Vollmer (Touchdown)
  • Drive 9: Solder, Connolly, Stork, Ryan Wendell, Vollmer (Interception)
  • Drive 10: Solder: Wendell, Stork, Fleming, Cannon (Touchdown)
  • Drive 11: Cannon, Wendell, Stork, Fleming, Vollmer (Punt)
