Brown played through ankle and knee injuries in last Sunday’s loss at Miami, where Parker took a blow to the head and did not return. Brown also missed the start of practice last week, but returned the following day and hasn’t missed a game this season.

Offensive tackle Calvin Anderson and tight end Pharaoh Brown were also absent Wednesday. Linebacker Ja’Whaun Bentley jogged lightly on the field, but did not engage in any individual drills. He left in the second quarter of Sunday’s loss with a hamstring injury.

The Patriots will release their first injury report of the week Wednesday evening.
