The Patriots are practicing without CB Stephon Gilmore (concussion) and Eric Rowe (groin) for the second straight day, which could mean it is another week in which core special teams player Johnson Bademosi is tapped to fill in at cornerback.

QB Jimmy Garoppolo was recognized as one of the Patriots' practice players of the week, which is given to those deemed to have best prepared the club in the days leading up to a victory. Garoppolo took most of the practice reps last week as Tom Brady's left shoulder injury had him limited.
