Wednesday's big news in the NFL was about Tom Brady's illness that prevented him for practicing with the New England Patriots, today, he says he's all better. 

A flu bug was Brady's down fall earlier in the week, which led to worrying Pats fans and increasing media attention on the veteran's health. 

Speaking to reporters after his comeback from the illness, Brady assured all concerned that he is fit and healthy, and raring to go this Sunday. 

"I had a good day of practice," Brady told reporters after the session. "(It's) good to be back on track," explained Brady. 

"It was nothing," Brady said at the news conference. "I feel great. Nothing at all."

It obviously wasn't nothing or else he wouldn't have missed practice. However, the QB wants to spin it, the fact of the matter is that Brady missed an all important practice in the lead up to the game. 

We will see Sunday if he's all better. 

Brady was back at the Pats HQ Thursday morning. He was later seen on the field during the period of practice available to the media. 

"I had a good day of practice," Brady told reporters. "(It's) good to be back on track."

Ian Rapoport reported Brady missed Wednesday's practice because of sickness. The Patriots' also revealed Brady has a shoulder problem.

"It was nothing," added Brady. "I feel great. Nothing at all."

The shoulder injury for Brady is certainly nothing new, with the three-time Super Bowl winner having battled that particular problem for a few years.
