Seven players limited at practice for Patriots; Gronk DNP for Bucs

James White did not participate and seven other players were limited at practice Wednesday for the New England Patriots, now just four days away from Tom Brady's return to Gillette Stadium with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

White, who suffered a hip injury in Sunday's 28-13 loss to the New Orleans Saints, is reportedly out for the season.

The other notable former Patriot set to return Sunday, Rob Gronkowski, also did not practice for Tampa Bay. Gronk left Sunday's 34-24 loss to the Los Angeles Rams in the third quarter with injured ribs but ultimately returned later in the contest.

Both of New England's starting offensive tackles, Trent Brown (calf) and Isaiah Wynn (knee), were limited for the Patriots, as well as three starting linebackers in Kyle Van Noy (groin) and Josh Uche (back). Van Noy had missed New England's Week 2 win over the New York Jets with a throat injury before returning last week; Uche popped up on last week's injury report with a back on Friday and missed the Saints game.
