FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – The New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady has been restricted in three of the last four exercises and given his age as part of the reason.
"Football is a contact sport, I would not." I'm not saying any more, I'm a spring chicken, "said 42-year-old Brady on Wednesday with a smile," I try to make myself feel as good as possible and we'll see how it goes tomorrow. But I feel pretty good. "
There's little doubt that Brady will be tense against the Buffalo Bills on Sunday matchup of 3-0 teams, but his limited training load appears to be part of the" squad management "team. Coaching Bill Belichick, who was relegated to the team that had signed on Wednesday's free-agent quarterback Cody Kessler's quarterback on the list, was rookie Jarrett Stidham. Stidham in addition to scouting to deal with the regular offense,
Brady was one of 10 Patriot players restricted in training on Wednesday, to which receiver Julian Edelman injured his ribs on Sunday's victory over the New York Jets. X-rays were negative, but Edelman appears to be dealing with considerable pain after being approached by Henry Anderson, a 300-pound defender.
"E r is as tough as they come, "said Brady. "He's going to do anything to get started, and if he's not out there, it's definitely going to be felt by all of us, hopefully he'll make it, if he can not, the other people will have to get in touch and do it." You just have to prepare for both.
The Sunday's game shows the NFL's most mean-spirited teams as the Patriots have averaged 5.7 points per game in victories over the Pittsburgh Steelers, Miami, and Dolphins and Jets are a combined 0-9.  The Bills averaged 15.7 points per game in victories over the Jets, New York Giants and Cincinnati Bengals, which are a combined 1-8.
Brady is no stranger to New Era Field (formerly Ralph Wilson Stadium) because he has won 15 wins at the venue.
"It's a great environment for football," he said, "This will be the toughest game we've ever faced and we'll have to play a great game , It's hard to get on the road, and certainly at the beginning of the game, after they are still a little bit out of the game before the match. "Fired up – they're pretty loud, we have to be executed early. with whom we have done a good job all year round, this week is really important. "
