Johnson Bademosi returns to Patriots practice, Alan Branch still absent

FOXBORO — Johnson Bademosi is sick. Sick of missing practice!

The Patriots cornerback returned to the field Friday after being held out Thursday due to illness. That left Alan Branch as the only absence for Friday’s practice. 

Branch, who is dealing with a knee injury, has now missed three straight days of practice. That puts his status for Sunday’s game against the Steelers in doubt.
