FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — An illness appears to be going around the New England Patriots locker room.

Nine players, including cornerback Stephon Gilmore and linebacker Dont'a Hightower, missed Wednesday's practice at Gillette Stadium or were limited participants because of illness. Luckily for the Patriots, their Week 13 game against the Houston Texans at NRG Stadium isn't until Sunday night, so they will have a few extra hours to get everyone feeling as best as possible.

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady popped up on the injury report last week with an elbow issue. He's still listed on the latest report, but his elbow ailment didn't prevent him from being a full participant Wednesday.

Defensive end Carlos Watkins was the only Texans player who didn't practice. Houston safeties Mike Adams and Justin Reid both were full participants despite recently battling a concussion, which is an encouraging sign for their ability to play versus the Patriots.

Here are the full Wednesday injury reports for both teams.
