New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was not present at the media portion of the team's Wednesday practice as his teammates prepared for their regular season finale against the Buffalo Bills on Sunday.
Brady, who was seen wearing an ice pack on his non-throwing shoulder after getting hit during the Miami Dolphins game in Week 16, spoke to reporters during media availability and is still expected to play on Sunday.
The Patriots were also without offensive linemen Logan Mankins and Sebastian Vollmer during the media portion of the practice. Mankins sprained his MCL during the Dolphins game and is not expected to play against the Bills. Vollmer injured his right foot against the Philadelphia Eagles on Nov. 27 and hasn't played since.
Left tackle Matt Light miss Saturday's win against the Dolphins, but returned to practice on Wednesday.
