Patriots’ playoff news: Tom Brady absent from practice due to illness

Absent from the New England Patriots practice on Wednesday was quarterback Tom Brady, but there is no worry. According to the Boston Herald on Jan. 15, Brady missed the first workout of AFC Championship week with an illness.

The illness also caused Brady to cancel his normal Wednesday news conference, but the star quarterback is expected to be ready for Sunday’s AFC Championship Game against the Denver Broncos. Head coach Bill Belichick didn’t have much to offer on the news. As usual, the Patriots coach kept it simple when asked about Brady’s absence.

“We’ll talk about it when the (injury report) comes out,” said Belichick.

Brady did admit to having a cold during his preparation before the divisional round playoff game against the Indianapolis Colts. Wednesday’s absence was primarily for rest as there will be nothing that will keep Brady from taking the field against his rival Peyton Manning.

On a more positive note for the team, wide receiver Aaron Dobson did return to practice, which indicates that he will be available on Sunday. His presence will definitely make Brady feel a bit better.
