Patriots runningback Fred Taylor and wide receiver Julian Edelman both returned to practice on Thursday, after both have reportedly been battling foot injuries.

Ian Rapoport of the Boston Herald reported via Twitter that neither of the two appeared hampered by their injuries, and he believes Edelman may also return this week, which is good news as both he and Taylor are expected to be important factors in Sunday's game.  Edelman had tried to play last week and was seen on the field prior to their game against the Bengals, but apparently couldn't go and ended up being inactive.

According to a Herald report the only players not present were offensive lineman Nick Kaczur (back) and cornerback Terrence Wheatley (foot), with the newspaper reporting that Wheatley was seen and wasn't wearing a protective boot on his foot, which is likely a sign of progress.
