FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - New England Patriots offensive guard Dan Connolly was a full-participant in practice on Thursday. 

Connolly had suffered a concussion in the team's week 15 win over the Green Bay Packers and missed the final two games of the season. He was present Wednesday, but was wearing a red, no-contact jersey. 

Other news includes running back Danny Woodhead was present during practice but was sporting the no-contact jersey. Also, Sebastian Vollmer was not present today during the media portion of the practice; no word why not.
