Bryant was sidelined by an ankle injury suffered in Sunday’s loss to Tennessee while James continues to recover from a sprained right knee suffered in the same game, which both finished.
Free safety Alan Ball (shoulder) and defensive lineman Igor Olshansky (knee) also did not take part in Wednesday’s practice.
Tight end Martellus Bennett, who suffered a sprained ankle against the Titans, was limited in Wednesday’s practice.
Fullback Chris Gronkowski, who did not play in Sunday’s game, returned to practice on Wednesday.
