Tom Brady misses second straight practice, still on track for MNF
Stew Milne / USA Today Sports
ESPN's Mike Reiss is reporting that Patriots quarterback Tom Brady did not practice on Thursday, marking the second straight day he has missed work. This is the first time Brady has been held out of back-to-back practices this year, and the third consecutive week he's skipped at least one day leading up to the team's game.
Brady missed Wednesday in advance of the team's first meeting with the Dolphins two weeks ago and their matchup with the Bills last week. The Pats have listed him with an Achilles ailment, but each week he's been removed from the final injury report and a full go for the game. With this game on Monday night, it appears Brady is simply using the extra day to get some extra rest and recovery.
Weiss did note that he was present at the team facilities for meetings and film. He's still on track to play against Miami this week.
