As it turns out, Pats receiver Brandon Lloyd is fine. The same can’t be said for the rest of the team’s pass-catchers.
Lloyd didn’t appear anywhere on the team’s injury report, which means he’s not injured at all. Four other guys who get paid to catch footballs are injured — and all four practiced Wednesday on a limited basis.
All have lingering injuries. Tight end Aaron Hernandez with an ankle, tight end Rob Gronkowski with a hip, receiver Julian Edelman with a hand, and receiver Wes Welker with an ankle.
Also limited were safety Patrick Chung (shoulder), safety Steve Gregory (hip), linebacker Dont’a Hightower (hamstring), guard Logan Mankins (calf, hip), center Nick McDonald (shoulder), cornerback Sterling Moore (knee), and tackle Sebastian Vollmer (back, knee).
Running back Brandon Bolden (knee) didn’t practice. Neither did linebacker Tracy White (foot). Defensive tackle Kyle Love (foot) was able to fully participate in practice.
