FOXBORO, Mass. — Patriots quarterback Tom Brady returned to practice Thursday after missing Wednesday’s session with the flu, which is a strong indication that he’ll be ready to roll Sunday in Buffalo.
Defensive lineman Myron Pryor, who has missed six consecutive games with a back injury, also participated. Rookie defensive lineman Brandon Deaderick also returned after missing Wednesday’s practice with a shoulder injury.
However, the Patriots were missing tight end Aaron Hernandez (hip), wide receiver Deion Branch (knee), linebacker Jermaine Cunningham (calf), linebacker Tully Banta-Cain (groin), defensive lineman Mike Wright (concussion) and right guard Dan Connolly (concussion).
The practice was held inside Gillette Stadium with the players wearing sweats and shells. Pryor, who wasn’t very worried about the cold conditions, was wearing shorts.
