Eric Rowe misses Friday's Patriots practice, ruled out for Sunday's game

FOXBORO — All parties were present for the media portion of Friday’s Patriots practice with the exception of cornerback Eric Rowe. 

Rowe, who missed Week 5 with a groin injury, appears a longshot to play Sunday against the Jets. The veteran cornerback re-aggravated his injury in the Patriots’ Week 4 loss to the Panthers. 

Rob Gronkowski (thigh) and Tom Brady (shoulder) were both there for the media portion, which consisted of stretching. Both players were limited in Thursday’s practice.

Tom Brady: Achilles injury 'nothing to worry about'

Tom Brady: Achilles injury 'nothing to worry about'

FOXBORO — Within 30 seconds of his Friday press conference beginning, Tom Brady was talking about biscuits. That should tell you how small a deal he considers the Achilles tendon issue that kept him out of Wednesday’s practice. 

Brady practiced for the second consecutive day Friday, after which he confirmed that he will be good to go Sunday against the Dolphins. 

MORE PATRIOTS:

“I feel great. Ready to go, so I’ll be excited for Sunday and it feels good to get a little extra treatment,” Brady said. “I’m feeling great this time of year. It will be a fun week. Nothing to worry about.”

After that, Brady spoke about the aforementioned Thanksgiving biscuits of which he posted pictures on Instagram. He said they were good. Rob Gronkowski said he wanted some and that there would be “problems” if Brady didn’t bring any in for him. Everyone got a real kick out of it. 

It’s hard to imagine Brady’s status for Sunday actually being up in the air. He has gone 134 consecutive regular-season games without missing time due to injury. His only absence in that span came in the form of last season’s four-game suspension for Deflategate.
