Just five days after suffering a nasty elbow injury, New England Patriots rookie wide receiver Malcolm Mitchell was back on the practice field in full pads.
Mitchell suffered a dislocated elbow after securing his fourth reception during the preseason opener against the Saints.
The timetable for return has been reported to be around a month.
While Mitchell's presence is an encouraging sign, it's unlikely that he fully participates. He sported a brace/sleeve on his left arm -- a similar to what Rob Gronkowski wears, the story said.
