Offensive linemen Dan Connolly, Bryan Stork and Cameron Fleming were all present at the start of practice for the Patriots on Tuesday, while cornerback Darrelle Revis and defensive end Chandler Jones were not among those spotted at the workout, which was held in sweats and shells, according to reports.

Connolly and Stork have been dealing with head injuries the last couple of weeks, while Fleming has been on the shelf because of a finger problem. Special teamer Nate Ebner, who has also been missing with a finger injury for the last couple of weeks, was also spotted at practice.

On the other side, while Revis has had occasional hamstring issues over the course of the season, nothing has kept him from playing. It’s not known what Jones might be dealing with.

The Patriots will host the Bears Sunday at Gillette Stadium.

Brandon Browner

Cornerback Brandon Browner, defensive tackle Dominique Easley (knee/shoulder), safety Nate Ebner (finger) and offensive lineman Cameron Fleming (finger) were not present for the start of Patriots practice on Thursday, according to reports.

Browner, set to come off a four-game suspension, was absent for undisclosed reasons. The injury report is released at 4 p.m., which should shed some light on the situation. For what it’s worth, after practice on Wednesday, Browner was spotted with his teammates in the locker room, and did not appear to be hobbled in any fashion.

The Patriots continue preparing for this Sunday’s game against the Bills, set for Sunday at 1 in Buffalo.

FOXBORO — Defensive back Nate Ebner (finger) and offensive lineman Cameron Fleming (finger) were the only two Patriots players to miss practice Wednesday — the pair didn’t practice at all last week before missing last Sunday’s game with the Bengals.

After leaving the game with injuries, both safety Devin McCourty (rib) and Dominique Easley (shoulder/knee) practiced, but were limited. And after being inactive Sunday Dont’a Hightower practiced, but also was limited.

The Patriots held a walk-through on the grass fields behind Gillette Stadium in preparation for Sunday’s matchup in Buffalo against the Bills.

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.
