GNOTD: Tom Brady Returns to Practice

Great news!

Mark L. Baer-USA TODAY Sports

Happy days! All Universe quarterback Tom Brady is back at practice and all is right in New England again.

Brady had missed yesterday's practice due to an illness that he'd been fighting for a week. He was sent home, along with fellow sickly person long snapper Danny Aiken.

If Brady's back at practice, it means that the team thinks he's up to the challenge and that Ryan Mallett can go back to being Peyton Manning in practice. Having a healthy Brady will be imperative to offensive success, along with a healthy Kenbrell Thompkins and Aaron Dobson.

I don't think anyone was really too concerned about Brady being a no-show yesterday, and his reappearance today should just reenforce the fact that Tom Brady won't miss a game, unless he's strapped to a hospital bed. Especially not a game in the playoffs. Against Peyton. Puh-leeze.

Welcome back, Brady, and please distribute some Purell to your wide receivers.
