FOXBORO — The Patriots held practice outside in the cold on the grass fields behind Gillette Stadium Friday in advance of Sunday’s game in Green Bay against the Packers. Practice was in full pads.

The only player missing at the session was linebacker Chris White, who was added to the injury report on Thursday with an ankle injury, and was limited. Defensive end Chandler Jones (hip) practiced for a third straight day.

Defensive lineman Sealver Siliga was present at the start of practice, and with it being a full-padded practice and not a walkthrough, his 21-day window to be activated to the active roster has started. He was on short-term injured reserve designated for return after suffering a foot injury Week 3 against the Raiders.

The Patriots have one open roster spot on the 53-man roster with Don Jones’ release earlier in the day. That spot could go to Siliga, but this was the first full-padded practice he’s been spotted at since suffering the injury. The team has two spots open on its practice squad and one on the active roster.

Long-snapper Danny Aiken (concussion) was present and Charley Hughlett was released from the practice squad earlier in the day, so it seems likely Aiken will be ready to go on Sunday.

FOXBORO — Patriots defensive end Chandler Jones didn’t practice at all since his Week 7 hip injury against the Jets, until this week when Jones has practiced both Wednesday and Thursday, on a limited basis.

Coach Bill Belichick didn’t give any insight on his recovery process or a timetable for a return, just that it’s a day-by-day thing.

“We just take it day-by-day-by-day-by-day,” Belichick said. “I know you guys don’€™t want to hear that, but that’€™s what it is. I’€™m not going to sit here and make something up. Each day we go out there and the player does what he can do and we evaluate it.”

Added Belichick: “There’€™s no leapfrog where you jump like four or five steps in the process. Each day, what the medical department says, he goes out there and does a little bit more than he did the day before and feels good and there’€™s no setbacks then we bump it up to the next level. If he doesn’€™t, then we stay the same or maybe back it down for a day and try again. … That’€™s just normal rehab for every player. I mean, the rehab is different but the process is really the same.”

In seven games this season Jones has 4.5 sacks. There have been varying reports on the just how long Jones will be out. When he was first injured, the Boston Globe reported he would be out about a month, but the Boston Herald later added there was concern he would miss the entire rest of the season.

While it’s highly unlikely Jones plays this week, or even next week in San Diego, him practicing is a very encouraging sign for him to make a return at some point this regular-season.

Chris White

Even with the Thanksgiving holiday, the Patriots practiced Thursday morning at Gillette Stadium in advance of Sunday’s game against the Packers. The practice report was virtually the same as Wednesday’s, with the exception of linebacker Chris White being added with an ankle injury. He was limited. White is a core special teams player.

Chandler Jones (hip) was limited for a second straight day, which was good news since Wednesday was his first sighting since suffering the injury during Week 7 against the Jets.

Here is the complete practice report:

Limited participation

LS Danny Aiken (concussion)
OL Marcus Cannon (hip)
OL Dan Connolly (ankle)
DL Dominique Easley (knee)
DB Nate Ebner (finger)
OL Cameron Fleming (finger/ankle)
DE Chandler Jones (hip)
WR Brandon LaFell (shoulder)

FOXBORO — The good news for the Patriots was the entire team took part in Wednesday’s walkthrough inside the Dana Farber Fieldhouse — the bad news was they had nine players limited.

The biggest takeaway was the presence of Chandler Jones (hip), the first time he has practiced since suffering the hip injury in Week 7’s game against the Jets. Shane Vereen (ankle) was another player limited — it is unclear when he suffered the injury, as nothing was seen during last Sunday’s win over the Lions.

Long-snapper Danny Aiken (concussion) was limited — likely the result of C.J. Mosley bulling into him drawing a personal foul penalty late in the game last Sunday on a field goal attempt. Mosley was fined for the play. Brandon LaFell (shoulder) was also limited after landing awkwardly on his final catch last week.

Tom Brady (ankle) and Julian Edelman (thigh) were full participants.

The Patriots are preparing for Sunday’s game in Green Bay against the Packers.

Here is the complete practice report:

Limited participation

LS Danny Aiken (concussion)
OL Marcus Cannon (hip)
OL Dan Connolly (ankle)
DL Dominique Easley (knee)
DB Nate Ebner (finger)
OL Cameron Fleming (finger/ankle)
DE Chandler Jones (hip)
WR Brandon LaFell (shoulder)
RB Shane Vereen (ankle)

Full participation

QB Tom Brady (ankle)

FOXBORO — Chandler Jones was spotted at the Patriots walkthrough held Wednesday inside the Dana Farber Fieldhouse at Gillette Stadium. With snow falling outside, the team moved its practice indoors in advance of Sunday’s game in Green Bay.

The media was given limited access to the walkthrough and the players were not wearing jerseys so it was difficult to take a full attendance. A practice report will be released later this afternoon.

Long-snapper Charley Hughlett, who was added to the practice squad this morning, was present and was doing work before the session began.

It’s important to note regarding Jones, keep in mind it was a walkthrough and Sealver Siliga (foot) was present at last Wednesday’s walkthrough, but hasn’t yet come off of short-term injured reserve designated for return. Nevertheless, it’s a positive sign considering it was the first time he has been spotted since suffering the hip injury Week 7 against the Jets.

Chandler Jones (hip), Cameron Fleming (ankle) ruled out for Sunday vs. Lions 11.21.14 at 5:26 pm ET

Cameron Fleming

Cameron Fleming

FOXBORO — Chandler Jones will miss his fourth straight game with a hip injury while Cameron Fleming’s ankle injury suffered Sunday night against the Colts will keep him out of this weekend’s game against the Lions.

The two players were the only ones ruled out Friday after being two of the four players who missed practice. The team worked out in the cold for a second straight day in preparation for the game at Gillette Stadium. Also missing Friday was Dominique Easley. He missed practice for a second straight game with a knee issue but is officially questionable for Sunday.

Jonas Gray appeared on the report but only because he missed practice after showing up late at Gillette Stadium on Friday morning. He was sent home but was expected to return later in the day to apologize for oversleeping.

Fleming is also listed with a finger issue. But the finger, which is said to be still an issue, is likely not what’s keeping him from playing Sunday. Fleming was spotted with a big walking boot on his foot as he made his way through the locker room on Thursday.

Meanwhile, Jones hasn’t practiced since suffering the hip injury in Week 7. Both Fleming and Jones missed the entire week.

For the Lions, defensive lineman Nick Fairley once again did not practice and was ruled out with a knee injury. Offensive lineman Nick Warford was also officially ruled out, also suffering from a knee injury. Reggie Bush (ankle) is officially questionable after being limited all week in practice.

Here is Friday’s complete Patriots practice report:

Did not practice

OL Cameron Fleming (finger/ankle) OUT
DE Chandler Jones (hip) OUT
DL Dominique Easley (knee) QUESTIONABLE
RB Jonas Gray (not injury related)

Limited participation

OL Marcus Cannon (hip) QUESTIONABLE
S Nate Ebner (finger) QUESTIONABLE
WR Julian Edelman (thigh) PROBABLE

Full participation

QB Tom Brady (ankle) PROBABLE

Dominique Easley

The Patriots practiced outside in the cold on the grass fields behind Gillette Stadium on Thursday in advance of Sunday’s game with the Lions. Chandler Jones (hip), Dominique Easley (knee) and Cameron Fleming (finger/ankle) all missed the session.

Jones hasn’t practiced since suffering the hip injury in Week 7, while Fleming didn’t practice Wednesday after leaving late in last Sunday’s game against the Colts with an ankle injury. It was Fleming’s first action since suffering a finger injury Week 4 against Kansas City, which he is still said to be dealing with. Easley missed the practice after being limited on Wednesday. It is worth noting that Wednesday’s practice was a walkthrough and Thursday’s was held in full pads.

Offensive lineman Ryan Wendell (knee) was removed from the injury report.

On a side note, Sealver Siliga was spotted at Wednesday’s walkthrough, but his 21-day window of coming off short-term injured reserve has not started yet.

For the Lions, running back Joique Bell was limited in practice after not practicing at all on Wednesday. Wide receiver Calvin Johnson and defensive lineman Nick Fairley once again did not practice.

Here is the complete Patriots practice report:

Did not practice

DL Dominique Easley (knee)
OL Cameron Fleming (finger/ankle)
DE Chandler Jones (hip)

Limited participation

OL Marcus Cannon (hip)
S Nate Ebner (finger)
WR Julian Edelman (thigh)

Full participation

QB Tom Brady (ankle)
