Brady back at practice for Patriots

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — Tom Brady is back on the practice field.

The New England Patriots quarterback returned to practice on Friday after missing the previous two sessions with right finger, right shoulder and rib injuries. Brady was listed as questionable on the injury report for Sunday’s game against the Carolina Panthers.

Brady has a lot going on this week. His wife, supermodel Gisele Bundchen (jih-ZEHL’ BUN’-chen), gave birth on Tuesday to their son.

Brady went to the locker room with an arm injury early in last week’s loss to the Miami Dolphins, but didn’t miss a play and finished 19 for 29 for 352 yards and two touchdowns. The 7-5 Patriots hold a one-game lead over the Dolphins and New York Jets in the AFC East.
