Brady, who is dealing with a sprained foot and an unspecified right shoulder injury, practiced on a limited basis. The quarterback sat out New England's practice on Wednesday.
The treatment of Brady appears largely precautionary. He sat out practice last Wednesday as well, then played his best game of the season on Sunday night against the Pittsburgh Steelers, throwing for three touchdowns and rushing for another.
Brady is having another standout season for the Patriots, throwing for 2,176 yards, 17 touchdowns and just four interceptions. His 98.9 quarterback rating ranks him fourth in the NFL.
In other Pats injury news, safety Jarrad Page (calf) and nose tackle Myron Pryor (back) missed practice for the second straight day.
Guard Stephen Neal (shoulder), running back Fred Taylor (toe), and cornerback Jonathan Wilhite (hip) all practiced on a limited basis.
