Report: Foot sprain for Brady

By Mike Reiss

Quarterback Tom Brady is battling a foot sprain but is expected to play Sunday night against the Steelers, the Boston Globe reported Wednesday, citing a league source.

Brady missed his first practice of the season on Wednesday.

In his absence, backup quarterback Brian Hoyer took the snaps during the team's first day of practice leading up to the Steelers' game.
