Tom Brady skips another Wednesday practice

For years, Patriots quarterback Tom Brady’s name has appeared on the injury report with a “right shoulder” injury that never keeps him from playing.  Or from practicing.

More recently, the word “foot” has appeared in parentheses with “right shoulder” after his name — and he has missed the last two Wednesday practices because of it.

Of course, it didn’t seem to be hurting him against the Steelers.

Still, it’s bad enough to keep him from practicing, so something is going on.  But it would be foolish to expect the Pats to elaborate.

Also missing practice on Wednesday were safety Jarrad Page (calf) and defensive tackle Myron Pryor (back).  Guard Steve Neal (shoulder), running back Fred Taylor (toe), and cornerback Jonathan Wilhite (hip) practiced on a limited basis.

For the Colts, nine players missed practice:  running back Joseph Addai (neck), linebacker Gary Brackett (toe), tight end Brody Eldridge (rib), defensive end Dwight Freeney (not injury related), running back Mike Hart (ankle), safety Bob Sanders (biceps), linebacker Clint Session (elbow), cornerback Justin Tryon (foot), and receiver Reggie Wayne (knee).

Practicing on a limited basis were receiver Austin Collie (concussion) and receiver Blair White (shoulder).

The 6-3 Colts and the 7-2 Patriots meet again on Sunday afternoon.

  1. Manning can’t take a Wenesday off traveling to Foxboro but Brady can take a Wednesday off with the banged up Colts coming to town. This time last year the talk was if the Colts would try for a perfect season. What a difference a year and several injuries makes. History repeats itself though, and the Colts will slug through to meet and beat da Bears in Da Bowl in Dallas.

  2. Brady’s second only to Farve in the drama department. Both seem to love creating the illusion that they’re warriors playing through injuries. In reality, 99% of the players in the league are beat up at this stage of the season and most of them don’t miss practice or show up on the injury report.

    If Brady’s ankle was really an issue do you really think they would have him running a quarterback sneak from the 5-yard line last week?

  3. …and seaweed facial…

    @barneyrumble:
    I don’t think you can ever count Peyton Manning and the Colts out. The man can almost will a team into the playoffs. But the Bears? Honestly? Really?

  4. SHould be another good one. I am not sure I can take another game where the Pats loose a big lead late, and the game. Need to get it done this time. No fooling around. Expect a big game from Woodhead this week. He’ll be filling the role of Faulk who has been critical against the Colts.

  5. You do know that Brady played with three broken ribs and a dislocated finger on his throwing hand last year. Or in 2004 won a Super Bowl with a separated shoulder and a ruptured bursa sack in his throwing elbow. Pats don’t cry about injuries like other teams do (re Colts). Its a long season, they are going to give him a day off during the week. They did it with Moss last year. They do it with lots of veteran players. And tell me how this is Brady’s fault? Have you heard him even address this? He is the last player in the NFL to talk about himself. Laxer37, you sound like a 12 year old. When are we going to hear about the CHEATRIOTS? Oh, on Monday after the Pats drub the Dolts!

  6. @laxer37: He missed practice – no statement was made as to why. How exactly is that being dramatic?

    Are you talking about Brady, or Freeney?

  8. Really laxer…if you wanna pick on his HS girl flip of the hair on Sunday, that’s the truth. But Brady’s physical toughness and refusal to talk about injuries is also the truth. How you can compare that to Favruh’s constant whining and talking about himself and his owies is beyond me.
