Even though it didn't appear that Tom Brady's right foot wasn't bothering him on Sunday, when he threw for 350 yards and 4 touchdowns, it managed to keep him out of practice on Wednesday.  Brady, has now missed practice two times this year, today and last Wednesday with the same foot injury. 

Also for the Patriots, defensive lineman Myron Pryor (back) and safety Jarrad Page(calf) all missed practice today while guard Stephen Neal (shoulder), Fred Taylor (toe), and cornerback Jonathan Wilhite (hip) where all limited today.  Everyone except Wilhite and Brady missed last week's game against the Steelers.

As for the Colts, their injuries just keep piling up and it did not get much better today.  Running back Joseph Addai (neck), linebacker Gary Brackett (toe), running back Mike Hart (ankle), safety Bob Sanders (biceps), linebacker Clint Session (elbow), and wide receiver Reggie Wayne (knee) all regular everyday guys did not participate in practice today.

Wide Receiver Austin Colliewas able to able to practice today for a little while as he continues to battle back from a concussion he suffered a few weeks ago.

For the exception of Sanders, who hasn't played since Week 1, the Colts are very short handed in their offensive attack as both their leading rusher and receiver are injured and their defensive as two of their starting linebackers are hurt which could make it easier on the Patriots offense and defense and tougher for Peyton Manning and the Colts when the two teams square off this Sunday.
