Pats' Brady present for start of practice
From Mike Reiss of ESPNBoston.com:
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- After missing practices on Wednesday and Thursday, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady joined his teammates for the start of Friday's practice.
On Thursday, Brady was listed on the team's practice report as having injuries to his right shoulder, finger on his right hand and, for the first time, his ribs.
Media members were permitted to watch only the stretching portion of practice Friday, so it will be difficult to get a feel for how much Brady does or how he looks. Around 4 p.m., the Patriots will submit a full participation report, which will classify Brady's involvement in team drills of practice as either full participation, limited, or no participation. The team will also be required to project Brady's availability for Sunday's game against the Panthers -- either probable, questionable or doubtful.
