FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, who has not participated in the team's opening practice of the week prior to wins over the Steelers and Colts, was not present at Tuesday's workout.

Brady has been resting his injured foot, but there is little doubt about his availability for game action.

In addition to Brady, cornerback Jonathan Wilhite (hip), guard Stephen Neal (shoulder) and defensive lineman Mike Wright (neck/concussion) were the other Patriots players not spotted inside the Dana-Farber Field House, as the Patriots worked out in light shoulder pads in preparation for Thursday's game at Detroit.

Defensive lineman Myron Pryor, who has missed the last two weeks with a back injury, returned to practice for the first time.

Running back Fred Taylor (toe) and safety Jarrad Page (calf) were limited.
