FOXBORO (CBS) — Apparently, 65 pass attempts and 443 yards can make even the golden right arm of Tom Brady a little sore.
The Patriots’ quarterback did not participate in the team’s practice on Wednesday, listed on the injury report with a right shoulder injury. The extent of the ailment is unclear, but Brady did speak to reporters prior to the practice session and was present in the locker room afterward, so it’s likely not serious.
“It was a physical game, so yeah, I think everyone is a little sore from that game,” Brady said.
Brady’s been listed on the injury report many times for various ailments over the years, but the only starts he’s ever missed due to injury were in 2008, when he was injured in the first quarter of the team’s Week 1 game against the Chiefs.
The Patriots also welcomed back Rob Gronkowski to practice. The tight end practiced Friday and was listed as questionable for Sunday’s game, but he did not play. He was listed as having limited participation on Wednesday as he recovers from his broken forearm.
Alfonzo Dennard, who left Sunday night’s game against San Francisco due to injury, also was limited with a hamstring/knee issue. In total, 18 Patriots were listed as having limited participation.
