Patriots have perfect attendance at practice, including Antonio Brown, Marcus Cannon


FOXBOROUGH -- In the highly-anticipated Wednesday practice, the Patriots had perfect attendance.

This included Antonio Brown, who was accused of sexual assault and rape in a lawsuit released Tuesday. The Patriots officially signed him Monday after he was released by the Raiders over the weekend. The NFL is investigating the matter, but nothing is keeping Brown off the field as of now.

Brown wore No. 1, but once he plays in a game that will need to change, per NFL rules. His usual No. 84 is occupied by Benjamin Watson, who is currently suspended.

In other news, Marcus Cannon, who suffered a shoulder injury in Sunday's win over the Steelers, was also present. It was reported he will miss some time and the team signed offensive tackle Marshall Newhouse on Wednesday.

Regardless, him being on the practice field suggests it likely won't be a long-term absence.

The Patriots will practice Thursday and Friday before taking on the Dolphins Sunday in Miami.
