FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady did not practice Wednesday, according to the team's official participation report, marking the second straight Wednesday that he has been held out because of his injured foot.

Brady was asked about not practicing on a national conference call.

"I'm doing well, I'm doing well," he responded. "Looking forward to the game this weekend."

New England plays at home Sunday against the Indianapolis Colts.

Brady had been listed as probable for last Sunday night's 39-26 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers game with foot and shoulder problems. He did not practice last Wednesday but took part in workouts Thursday and Friday on a limited basis and played very well during the game.

In addition to Brady, defensive lineman Myron Pryor (back) and safety Jarrad Page (calf) did not practice Wednesday.

Guard Stephen Neal (shoulder), running back Fred Taylor (toe) and cornerback Jonathan Wilhite (hip) were limited in practice.
