46, 64 and 66 - warmed up with the linebackers, and Nos.

New England Patriots running back Rex Burkhead and wide receiver/special teams ace Matthew Slater resumed practicing with the team on Monday, according to ESPN's Mike Reiss.

Geneo Grissom and Deatrich Wise, both of whom left the practice field after stretching during workouts last week, remained on the field for positional drills. Burkhead didn't practice last week and sat out Friday's preseason game against the Detroit Lions. Burkhead missed all of last week and didn't play in the game, while Slater hasn't practiced since the second week of training camp.

Joining Edelman among the missing were Malcolm Mitchell, Nate Ebner, Harvey Langi, Shea McClellin, Tony Garcia, Nate Solder and Derek Rivers.

Monday was a light practice for New England, with the team foregoing pads for the afternoon affair.

A source told the Boston Herald's Jeff Howe that Solder's injury is not considered serious. Both are recovering from torn ACLs and are expected to miss the entire regular season.

The Patriots took to the practice fields for the first time on Monday without receiver Julian Edelman in the fold.

The Patriots finish their preseason on Thursday at home against the New York Giants, with the National Football League requiring the roster be trimmed to 53 players on Saturday.
