After the flu forced Tom Brady to miss Wednesday's session and kept him limited in Thursday's session, the quarterback is feeling much better and has been listed as "probable" for Sunday's game in Buffalo. After having to reschedule his media availability two days in a row, Brady finally answered questions on Friday.
"It was probably what a lot of guys are getting hit with lately. It's been going around town," he said. "But I'm feeling good. Had a good day of practice yesterday and have to go out and have a good day today and get sharpened up and ready to play for a division title."
Asked how it affected his ability to prepare, Brady said: "None."
Later, Brady added: "I'm ready for Santa Claus and I'm ready to play some football."
Besides Brady, the Patriots listed OL and kick return expert Dan Connolly as "doubtful" because of a concussion with another eight players as "questionable," including rookie TE Aaron Hernandez.
