FOXBORO, Mass. — It seems Tom Brady’s thigh injury has improved over the last week.
Defensive tackle Alan Branch missed his second consecutive practice session as the Patriots prepare to play the Houston Texans on Saturday in the AFC divisional playoff round. Branch also was absent last Thursday for undisclosed reasons. He has been the Patriots’ most consistent interior defensive lineman this season.
The Patriots practiced in full pads on the Gillette Stadium game field.
