Brady Back at Practice Despite Shoulder Injury

Brady returns to practice after report of injury

AP Sports Writer
      FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) – Tom Brady is back at practice with the
New England Patriots.

      Brady loosened up and ran with his teammates at the start of
practice Thursday while reporters were allowed to watch.

      He missed Wednesday's session, but the team says his absence was
not injury-related. Comcast SportsNet reported that same day that
Brady had X-rays to check for a separated left shoulder and was
told he was “all set.”

      Patriots spokesman Stacey James said Thursday: “If there was an
injury then it would be on the injury report.”

      Brady fell hard on the shoulder when he scrambled during the
fourth quarter of Sunday's 27-24 win over the Miami Dolphins in
which he also scored on two 1-yard sneaks.
