Tom Brady missed practice with the New England Patriots on Wednesday because of illness, reports cbssports.
The quarterback, who also has a right shoulder issue, has been listed on the Patriots' injury report, however he's expected to be ready for Sunday's crunch clash against the Denver Broncos.
Last week, it had been reported that Brady was struggling with a cold and that could be part of the illness that he's now picked up. However his right shoulder problem shouldn't be an issue ahead of Sunday's clash.
Brady's not the only Patriots star with a problem. Long Snapper Danny Aiken also missed practice on Wednesday, meanwhile punter Ryan Allen and wide receiver Aaron Dobson were only involved in limited practice.
Allen injured his shoulder in the Patriots' 43-22 victory against the Indianapolis Colts last week, but is expected to be fit for Sunday. However, it remains to be seen as to whether Dobson will return to the team after missing the match with the Colts.
