Logan mankins returned to practice on Wednesday after sitting out all of last week with a hip injury.

New England Patriots right guard Logan Mankins returned to practice on Wednesday after being inactive for Week 4's contest against the Buffalo Bills. Mankins did not travel with the team to Buffalo, where the Patriots defeated their division rival by a final score of 52-28.

The 30-year-old lineman was unable to participate in practice at all last week, as he was suffering from a hip injury. The ailment originally surfaced on the Thursday injury report prior to Week 3's Sunday night meeting with the Baltimore Ravens. Despite appearing on the list, he ultimately went on to play in the game. With Mankins unavailable against Buffalo, the Patriots re-signed offensive lineman Matt Tennant on Saturday and had Donald Thomas step in on the line.

In addition to Mankins, linebacker Dont'a Hightower returned to practice on Wednesday, as well. Hightower played nine snaps against the Bills on Sunday before leaving the game with a hamstring injury.
