New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady did not practice for the second straight day Thursday, and the Patriots pinpointed a new ailment for him -- his ribs.
Brady was listed on the team's participation report as having a right finger, right shoulder and rib injury. Brady's rib injury was disclosed for the first time.
In Sunday's 22-21 loss to the Dolphins, Brady retreated to the locker room after taking a big hit on a 58-yard touchdown pass to Randy Moss in the first quarter. Brady, who didn't miss any snaps, did not say what he had been treated for in the locker room.
