FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) - Tom Brady is back at practice with the Patriots.
New England's quarterback returned after missing one day because of illness. The Patriots are scheduled to practice again on Friday before leaving for Denver where they face Peyton Manning and the Broncos in the AFC championship game on Sunday.
Brady is 10-4 in his career against Manning. That includes a 2-1 record in the postseason.
The Patriots (13-4) have won their last three games with Brady throwing for fewer than 200 yards in each of them. They've relied on a strong running game led by LeGarrette Blount. The Broncos (14-3) are coming off a 24-17 AFC divisional-round win over San Diego.
