FOXBORO, Mass. — Let the panic begin.
New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was absent from practice Wednesday morning. If this were the middle of the season, a day off for Brady would be unusual but not shocking. During AFC Championship Game week, though, when the Patriots are playing the Broncos? It’s bizarre for the star signal-caller to be MIA.
There was good news at practice, however. Rookie wide receiver Aaron Dobson was present, which could create mismatches against the Denver Broncos’ defense.
