Tom Brady returns to Patriots practice

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady returned to practice Wednesday after missing his first practice of the season on Tuesday.

According to Karen Kuregian of the Boston Herald, Brady first "dinged" his shoulder in New England's October 1 game against the Carolina Panthers. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported that Brady suffered what is believed to be an AC joint sprain. He was on the field Wednesday during the portion of practice open to the media. The injury was re-aggravated during their Thursday Night Football matchup with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Aside from fielding questions about his health, Brady also raved about the season wide receiver Danny Amendola is having. Guregian describes the injury as a "left shoulder irritation".

According to Rapoport, Brady will not miss Sunday's game against the New York Jets (3-2).

By comparison, in 16 regular season games last season, Patriots quarterbacks took just 24 sacks and were hit 73 times. Against the Panthers, he was sacked three times and hit seven times. It's only Tuesday and giving a 40-year-old quarterback a day off doesn't seem like the worst idea.
