In addition to sitting out Wednesday's practice because of the flu, Tom Brady rescheduled his weekly press conference, moving it to Thursday. Apparently he's still too sick to talk because shortly before he was supposed to meet with the media on Thursday, Brady pushed his availability back to Friday.
Brady reportedly opted to stay home and will miss Thursday's practice, set to take place outside at Gillette Stadium. Deion Branch realizes it's more important for Brady to get healthy in time for Sunday's game at Buffalo than practicing.
"We have to do what we have to do," said Patriots wide receiver Deion Branch. "Whatever it takes to get Tom up to full state. If he needs to rest two or three days, that's what he's got to do."
