Ailing Patriots QB skips practice

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- The New England Patriots are taking Tom Brady's absence from practice in stride.

Four days before the AFC championship game against the Denver Broncos, the star quarterback missed practice Wednesday because of illness and his right shoulder, the Patriots said in their practice report.

Brady said last week that he had a cold. Then he led the Patriots to a 43-22 win over the Indianapolis Colts in an AFC playoff game on a rainy Saturday night. Earlier in the season, he was listed on the injury report with the shoulder condition but usually practised with it.

Backup Ryan Mallett did double duty Wednesday. He was the quarterback for the offence and also emulated Denver quarterback Peyton Manning for the defence.

"I'm not worried about Tom because I know Tom," Mallett said.
