FOXBORO (CBS) – Tom Brady is still the topic as the Patriots get ready to take on the Buffalo Bills.
Brady missed practice Wednesday, was present Thursday but listed as limited, and he was out there again Friday.
It was the typical Friday practice. Reporters were only there for the stretching portion and during that time, Tom did not make any throws.

Missing from practice was Logan Mankins and Sebastian Vollmer. Neither player has practiced this week and they are not expected to play on Sunday.
Tedy Not Concerned
Former Patriots linebacker Tedy Bruschi was on Mike and Mike in the Morning on Friday and said he’s not worried about Tom Brady and his injury at all.
“Every year in Tom’s career, he starts to get banged up a little bit [late in the season],” Bruschi said. “Everyone on the team starts to get banged up. You saw the shot he took from [Elvis] Dumervil in Denver, where it decleated him. And Cameron Wake got him a time or two last week. So you start to break down a little bit as a quarterback, as a running back, as a linebacker, it affects your game a little bit.”

“What Tom’s always been great at is maintenance. He always will wear the protective braces or get the extra treatment. Playoff times comes around this guy [uses] no excuses. He’s going to be ready to play for this team.”
Bruschi is a huge Brady supporter and he’s right. Tom always says he hates to see someone else out there running his team.
I expect him to play and be effective on Sunday.
