Tom Brady returns to Patriots practice

FOXBOROUGH -- It’s OK to exhale, Patriots fans: Quarterback Tom Brady was back at practice on Thursday.

Brady missed his first practice of the season on Wednesday, and was listed on the team’s post-practice injury report with a right shoulder injury. The assumption was that Brady, who attempted a career-high 65 passes in Sunday night’s loss to San Francisco, was simply being given an extra day to rest.

The only player not spotted at practice was linebacker Mike Rivera, the other Patriot who didn’t practice on Wednesday. Rivera suffered an ankle injury against the 49ers.
