Good news of the day: QB Tom Brady, TE Martellus Bennett return to Patriots practice

After being out the last two days, Brady returned to practice today.

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady looked very good last Sunday against the San Francisco 49ers. He completed 24 of 40 pass attemptd for 280 yards and four touchdowns, earning AFC Offensive Player of the Week honors for his performance. There were no signs of the quarterback dealing with any sort of injury.

And yet, on Wednesday, Brady was not spotted at practice. As the Patriots later announced via their injury report, he missed the session because of a knee injury — one, that reportedly was not expected to keep him out of the upcoming game against the New York Jets, though.

However, after also missing yesterday's session, the 39-year old — as was expected — returned to practice today. While the team might still list him as “questionable” on the injury report, make no mistake, Brady will start Sunday’s game in New York.

Brady was not the only player to return to practice today: Tight end Martellus Bennett, who was out yesterday with an ankle injury, was also back. Defensive end Rob Ninkovich, cornerback Cyrus Jones and special teamer Matthew Slater, on the other hand, were not spotted.

The official injury report will be released later today.
