New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is probable for Sunday's regular-season finale against the Buffalo Bills with a sprained left shoulder, a source with knowledge of the situation told NFL Network's Albert Breer.
Breer: Gannon feels Brady's pain
Comcast SportsNet New England reported that Brady participated in the beginning of Friday's practice and didn't appear to be hampered by the shoulder while running sprints. NFL Network insider Jason La Canfora cited league sources in reporting Thursday that Brady is expected to play against the Bills.
Asked what Brady was able to do in Thursday's practice, Patriots coach Bill Belichick said Friday: "Play quarterback, the usual thing." When asked if Wednesday was a planned day off for Brady, Belichick said he thought he had covered that topic.
Brady was limited in practice the past two days after missing practice Wednesday for what the Patriots called non-injury-related reasons.
