Brady not present for practice

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was not present for the start of the team's practice Wednesday, which could be related to him landing hard on his non-throwing shoulder in Saturday's win over the Dolphins.

After Saturday's game, Brady went for an X-ray to check for a separation and was told he was "all set", according to Tom Curran of Comcast SportsNet.

Brady held his regular news conference Wednesday and also sat down with ESPN's Chris Berman for an interview.

In addition to Brady, offensive linemen Sebastian Vollmer (ankle/foot) and Logan Mankins (knee) were the other players not spotted at practice. Left tackle Matt Light, who missed Saturday's win over the Dolphins with an ankle injury, was back on the field.
