Tom Brady was back where he belongs, taking snaps at the New England Patriots' first practice session of Super Bowl week.
The NFL's Most Valuable Player missed three practices last week with a tender right ankle, which he had taped for Monday's training at Arizona State in nearby Tempe. According to a pool report filed by the Chicago Tribune, the star quarterback appeared to have a slight limp. But he participated in all phases of practice, including jogging the length of the field twice at the end of drills.
Coach Bill Belichick declined comment on any injuries, or on Brady's presence at the workout.
