New England Patriots linebackers Brandon Spikes (knee) and Dane Fletcher (thumb) were the only two players that did not participate in the team's Thanksgiving Day practice.

Spikes has played in seven games for the Patriots this season, recording 44 tackles (32 solo) while Fletcher has appeared in six games for the Pats this year, totaling 10 tackles (eight solo).

In addition, the team had 12 players who were limited in participation, and they are the following: Deion Branch (hip), Devin McCourty (shoulder), Matt Light (ankle), Patrick Chung (foot), Dan Connolly (groin), Gary Guyton (shoulder), James Ihedigbo (shoulder), Taylor Price (hamstring), Matthew Slater (shoulder), Sebastian Vollmer (back), Brian Waters (knee), Wes Welker (knee).

Thursday's practice was not in full pads, with players instead wearing sweats and shells on the upper fields behind GIllette Stadium, according to WEEI. New England faces the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday.
