 PHOENIX (AP) -Tom Brady looked sharp, his ankle was fine and the Patriots had a crisp practice. Things are back to normal for undefeated New England just in time for the Super Bowl.
``We're as ready as we're going to be,'' coach Bill Belichick said Thursday. ``We could spend four weeks preparing for the Giants, but we'll be ready to go.''
According to the Chicago Tribune's Dan Pompei, the designated pool reporter, Brady's high ankle sprain again seemed a non-factor in practice. He didn't appear to limp and the ankle wasn't taped over his shoe for the second straight day.
Brady's right shoulder? Well, that was still on the Patriots' injury report, where it's been most of the last few seasons.
``Am I cured? I don't think it's a problem going into the game,'' Brady said of the ankle before practice. ``I think the right shoulder is probable. A little fatigued, so, going to be going out and trying to move around the best I can and make all the throws. I don't think the ankle is truly a problem. If it was, I'm sure coach would have listed it.''
Belichick liked what he saw from his team a day after being less than pleased by their performance on the field at Sun Devil Stadium. The Patriots practiced in pads, something they don't usually do on Thursdays before games.
``Another day always helps,'' he said. ``These guys care. They want to practice well. When we make mistakes, we've got to correct them. They want to get it right the next time.''
Belichick said the team won't do much different at practice Friday.
``We're pretty close,'' he said. ``We'll review some stuff tomorrow. There won't be hardly anything new. Just reviewing situations. ``
Wide receiver Jabar Gaffney was again the only New England player limited in practice because of a shoulder injury.
