Report: Tom Brady not present at practice, will play Sunday


One of the NFL’s top starting quarterbacks reportedly wasn’t seen at the open portion of his club’s practice on Thursday.

According to Lee Schechter and Mike Reiss of, Patriots quarterback Tom Brady wasn’t present at the team’s workout early Thursday, but he’s expected to play Sunday at Miami.

It’s not yet known why Brady wasn’t at practice. He was not on the club’s initial injury report Wednesday. He has not missed a start since suffering an ACL tear in the 2008 regular season opener against Kansas City.

Over the years, Brady has shown up on the injury report with a right shoulder ailment, but it’s never kept him out of the lineup. And Thursday’s ESPN Boston report suggests his absence today isn’t a major deal, either.

    He’s sitting with the recently signed Dolphins to learn the defensive signals.

    “He has not missed a start since suffering an ACL tear in the 2008 regular season opener against Kansas City.”

    I think he actually missed 15 starts since his ACL tear…

    Probably getting a little morning action from Giselle. He gets a pass.

    He was probably somewhere else if I had to take a guess

    Belichick: “Hey Tom, feel like screwing with the press today ?”

    Brady: “Sure !”

    He’s holed up with Ernie Adams, going over the “cheat” sheets.

    “Hey Bill I can’t come in today. The Activia is working!”

    – Tom Brady

    Wasn’t he at the Kentucky Derby with Welker?

    Maybe somebody who is 5′-8″ with hair implants is protesting his suspension and throwing old friends under the bus.

    He wants to enjoy one last day at the waterpark!

  14. akfinfan says: Sep 4, 2014 2:10 PM

    Well he did say that he quit playing “When he starts to suck.”

  15. officialgame says: Sep 4, 2014 2:17 PM

    Probably got traded for a 3rd round pick and an average receiver.

  16. clashpoint says: Sep 4, 2014 2:27 PM

    I think he’s getting a day off practice due to what Mike Tomlin always calls a “birth certificate contusion.” Old people sometimes need an extra day off.

    Sundays game will be like practice when the dolphins get torched but he might be sacked more than 4 times….

  18. 6ball says: Sep 4, 2014 2:37 PM

    The Patriots often give Brady a day off during the week.

  19. williamshatnerstoupee says: Sep 4, 2014 3:03 PM

    No way he gets sacked four times. After the second one, the game is automatically forfeited in favor of the Patriots.

  20. nickswearsky says: Sep 4, 2014 3:09 PM

    He was having dinner at Lance Brigg’s new restaurant.

    Better show up for my Fantasy Football, because I’m not ready to trust Colin Kaepernick.

    Brady is one of the NFL’s best quarterbacks ever.
    Having said that, I hope Wake, Oderick, Olivier, and Starks have a field day on Sunday, and make it a miserable outing for TB. It’s time.
