FOXBOROUGH — The New England Patriots offensive line could get a boost Monday with the potential return of center Ryan Wendell, who missed the past two games due to a knee injury.

Wendell played 22 snaps in the season opener at Miami, but was injured in the second half. He was taken off the injury report Thursday, an indicator that he’ll probably be ready for Monday night’s game in Kansas City.

In addition, receiver Julian Edelman (back) and running back Shane Vereen (shoulder) were taken off the report.

Patriots defensive tackle Sealver Siliga, who left the Oakland game with a foot injury, was the only player who did not practice Thursday. Linebacker Jamie Collins (thigh), offensive lineman Dan Connolly (foot), tight end Rob Gronkowski (knee), safety Don Jones (hamstring), cornerback Alfonzo Dennard (shoulder) and defensive end Michael Buchanan (ankle) were all limited.

For Kansas City, Pro Bowl safety Eric Berry sat out of practice with a high ankle sprain. Nursing an ankle injury of his own, running back Jamaal Charles was limited.
