FOXBORO, Mass. — Patriots quarterback Tom Brady only needed one day of rest, as he returned to the practice field Thursday after missing Wednesday's session.

Brady (left shoulder injury) said he used his time off to get extra treatment and prepare for the Ravens by studying additional film.

The Patriots had full attendance at practice for the third time in the last two weeks, and the session was held in sweats and shells. They have not practiced in full pads yet this week.

The Patriots will conduct their final practice of the week Friday before Saturday's closed walkthrough.
