BOSTON (CBS) — Tom Brady was not on the practice field Thursday afternoon, the only player absent from the Patriots’ practice session.

But that doesn’t mean the Jimmy Garoppolo era in New England will get an early start. Have no fear about Brady, as ESPNBoston’s Mike Reiss Tweeted that No. 12 will play in Sunday’s season opener against the Dolphins in Miami despite his absence on Thursday.

Brady did not appear on the team’s first practice/injury report of the season on Wednesday, but was listed with a calf injury on Thursday’s report.

Four Patriots were limited in practice for the second day in a row on Thursday: defensive lineman Mike Buchanan (ankle), tight end Rob Gronkowski (knee), and defensive tackles Chris Jones (ankle) and Sealver Siliga (hand).

Tune in to Sunday’s Patriots season opener against the Miami Dolphins on 98.5 The Sports Hub and WBZ-TV — the flagship stations of the New England Patriots. Pregame coverage begins on 98.5 at 10 am, with three full hours of postgame coverage following the game. WBZ-TV’s pregame begins at 11:30 am with Patriots GameDay, and tune in to myTV38 following the game for Patriots 5th Quarter!
