FOXBOROUGH — As promised, quarterback Tom Brady was back on the practice field today for the Patriots, who again had 18 players listed on the injury report.
Brady, the only Patriot to miss on Wednesday, participated fully today. He’s been nursing a left shoulder injury since taking a hard hit against Miami on Dec. 24.
Cornerback Kyle Arrington (foot), center Dan Connolly (groin), and receiver Matthew Slater (shoulder) all participated fully today, despite having injuries listed. The 14 Patriots who were limited: receivers Deion Branch (knee) and Wes Welker (knee); offensive linemen Marcus Cannon (ankle), Logan Mankins (knee), Nate Solder (concussion), and Sebastian Vollmer (foot/back); defensive backs Patrick Chung (knee) and James Ihedigbo (shoulder); linebackers Dane Fletcher (thumb), Rob Ninkovich (hip), Brandon Spikes (knee), and Tracy White (abdomen); tight end Aaron Hernandez (concussion); and defensive lineman Kyle Love (ankle).
The Ravens only had one player on their practice report today — safety Ed Reed, who was limited with an ankle injury. Reed was also limited in Wednesday’s practice, but participated in a teleconference today with New England media. It’s a safe bet he’ll be ready to go on Sunday.
