Devin McCourty returns to practice, but Tom Brady and Gronk are mysteriously absent

Good news out of Patriots practice today: Devin McCourty has returned to the field. McCourty was diagnosed with a high ankle sprain earlier this week and is expected to miss time.

However, according to Doug Kyed, Tom Brady, Rob Gronkowski and Bryan Stork were all missing from practice. 

It's probably nothing to worry about, but it does sort of raise an eyebrow.
