FOXBORO, Mass. — Patriots quarterback Tom Brady has missed his first practice of 2010.
Brady, who is always on the injury report with a right shoulder issue, was listed on Wednesday's practice report with a foot injury. The quarterback is coming off his most inaccurate passing performance of the season. He has completed fewer than 60 percent of his passes in three consecutive games, his first such stretch since the start of the 2006 season.
Patriots safeties Jarrad Page (left calf) and James Sanders (not injury related) and defensive lineman Myron Pryor (back) also missed Wednesday's practice, which was held in sweats and shells.
In brighter news, running back Fred Taylor participated in his first practice since Sept. 24. He has been sidelined with a toe injury on his left foot since New England's Week 3 victory against the Bills. Taylor's attendance was limited, however, and he cautioned people from being overly optimistic about returning to the field Sunday against the Steelers.
Right guard Stephen Neal (shoulder), defensive lineman Mike Wright (groin) and safety Patrick Chung (knee) were also limited Wednesday. Chung has been limited in six consecutive practice sessions.
