Brady, Moss don’t practice

Patriots QB Tom Brady did not practice on Wednesday and neither did Randy Moss. Moss’ absence from practice however, was not injury related.

Brady didn’t practice because of his right ring finger ailment and his right shoulder according to the Patriots injury report. Moss’ absence however, appears to be a veteran rest day.

There’s no way to confirm it, but there is speculation that Moss might be getting coddled after he reacted so negatively with his performance on the field last week.

Both Brady and Bill Belichick have come to Moss’ defense this week after the widespread report of Moss and three of his teammates being sent home last week after being late for a team meeting. Belichick reiterated his stance on Moss in a conference call with Buffalo media Wednesday.

“I think Randy Moss’s situation pretty much speaks for itself. I mean, over the last three years with the New England Patriots and throughout his career, he’s produced probably more than most every other player in the league at his position, or even in the history of the game for that matter. His teammates elected him captain the last two years, so I think that speaks to his leadership and the respect that he has off the field.”

Other starters not practicing Wednesday for the Patriots were DE Ty Warren (ankle) and DT Vince Wilfork (foot).
