    FOXBOROUGH — Tom Brady insisted at his Thursday press conference that despite being sent home Wednesday because of an illness, he was feeling just fine — and the Patriots’ injury report backs him up.

    New England removed Brady (illness/right shoulder), long snapper Danny Aiken (illness), and cornerback Kyle Arrington (groin) from Thursday’s report.

    The team also upgraded four players who had been listed as limited on Wednesday to full participants Thursday: Alfonzo Dennard, Dane Fletcher, Logan Mankins, and Shane Vereen.
