Tom Brady limited in practice, will play

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was limited in his participation in Thursday's practice, as his injured foot is still being managed carefully by the team's medical and athletic training staff.

This was similar to last week, as Brady was limited in his participation in Thursday and Friday practices.

Brady's status for Sunday's game versus the Indianapolis Colts isn't in doubt, but his participation level is reflective of an injury that is significant enough to keep him out of all drills.

Elsewhere, guard Stephen Neal (shoulder), running back Fred Taylor (toe) and cornerback Jonathan Wilhite (hip) remained limited in their participation.
