New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was forced to miss Wednesday's practice with an illness according to the NFL network.

Brady was not available for the scheduled press conferences on the network's championship wednesday ahead of their AFC Championship game against the Denver Broncos on Sunday. 

The signal-caller will now meet with the media on Friday instead.

Coach Bill Belichick would not be drawn on the nature of the quarterback's absence. The Patriots first injury report of the week will be released later today.

It is not thought that Brady will miss the game at the weekend and the Patriots have not released the nature of the illness at this stage.

During Belichick's press conference, the coach was asked "When was the last time that Tom (Brady) surprised you?" "This Morning." Belichick responded with a smile before moving the subject on.

The head coach also mentioned that he expected a different game to the November matchup between the two teams.

"It's going to be a different game, different match-ups," he said. "As always we'll look at what happened, erase it all of and start again."
