The New England Patriots have gotten a bit of a boost, as two key players rejoined the team at practice Wednesday

Wide receiver Danny Amendola and linebacker Dont'a Hightower returned to the practice field Wednesday, with the team preparing for their Week 3 game against the Houston Texans.

Both players were limited, after missing last week's game due to multiple injuries.

Along with Hightower and Amendola, the Pats also got receivers Phillip Dorsett and Chris Hogan and defensive back Eric Rowe, who were all nicked up last week, back to the practice field as well.
