Quarterback Tom Brady of the New England Patriots did not practice on Wednesday as the veteran nurses a thigh issue.
Brady was limited in practice all last week and listed as questionable for Saturday's game against the New York Jets. The injury did little to slow down the 39-year-old, who threw for three touchdowns in a 41-3 rout of the Jets.
Brady, who served a four-game suspension for his part in Deflategate to begin the season, has completed 266-of-399 passes for 3,278 yards with 25 touchdowns and two interceptions in 11 games.
Wide receivers Danny Amendola (ankle) and Malcolm Mitchell (knee) joined running back Dion Lewis (illness) and Brady as missing Wednesday's practice.
Coach Bill Belichick noted earlier in the week that he wasn't planning to rest players ahead of the season finale. New England (13-2) can wrap up the top seed in the AFC and home-field advantage with a win over host Miami (10-5) on Sunday (1 p.m. ET).
