Several key Patriots players continue to be absent from OTAs


FOXBOROUGH -- The Patriots were back on the field Friday for their sixth OTA session and second open to the media.

Like last week's that was open to the media, several key members of the team were absent, although the number wasn't quite as big.

Here's who wasn't spotted Friday: kicker Nick Folk, outside linebacker Matt Judon, safety Adrian Phillips, cornerback Stephon Gilmore, running back Brandon Bolden, running back Sony Michel, cornerback JC Jackson, running back James White, safety Devin McCourty, running back Rhamonste Stevenson, linebacker Dont'a Hightower, linebacker Terez Hall, offensive lineman Isaiah Wynn, offensive lineman Trent Brown, tight end Jonnu Smith, wide receiver Devin Smith and defensive tackle Byron Cowart.

It is worth noting these OTAs are voluntary.

The Patriots will be back on the field next week for another OTA session with Thursday's scheduled to be open to the media.
