Besides second-year wide receiver Mitchell, running back Mike Gillislee (both knee injuries) and linebacker Marquis Flowers (illness) were also back.
The Patriots thus boasted perfect attendance for their final practice before Saturday night’s Divisional Round home matchup against the Tennessee Titans.
Patriots WR Malcolm Mitchell, designated to return off IR, returned to practice today. Huh.
So did RB Mike Gillislee and LB Marquis Flowers. Call Joey Gladstone, because we got ourselves a Full House. pic.twitter.com/PGGBYHu5vm

Mitchell spent the entire season on injured reserve, and took the practice field for the first time during Week 17. However, he has yet to be activated to the team’s roster.
The Patriots defeated the New York Jets 26-6 on Dec. 31, while the Titans are coming off a 22-21 Wild Card victory over Kansas City.
New England has been making several headlines in recent days, amid reports of a rift between the franchise’s leaders and speculation that either the team’s defensive coordinator Matt Patricia or its defensive coordinator Josh McDaniels could leave to become head coach of the hopeless New York Giants.
