Patriots Vs. Bills Practice Reports: Brady Taken Off, Love Added; Spiller Returns

New England and Buffalo added a few names to their practice reports following their respective Thursday practices.

Stew Milne-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Tom Brady, who was listed on Wednesday's practice report with a right shoulder injury, was taken off of Thursday's version of the list. Defensive tackle Kyle Love took Brady's spot on the report, as he was limited with a knee injury on Thursday.

Brandon Deaderick, who did not practice on Wednesday, was back on the field on Thursday with limited practice time. Deaderick has been battling an ankle injury all week. Logan Mankins, who did not practice on Wednesday, was not spotted again on Thursday. Certainly worth keeping an eye on the status of these two players.

As for the Bills, the spotlight is on their running backs. After being considered a sure bet not to play this week, leading rusher C.J. Spiller returned to practice on Thursday. Spiller was limited with a right shoulder injury he sustained last week against the Cleveland Browns. After sitting out the past few weeks with a knee injury, former starter Fred Jackson was limited for the second consecutive day.

It's quite possible that we'll see both Spiller and Jackson, one of the two, or neither on Sunday. Let's hope for neither. Here are the full practice reports from both teams:
