Brady: 'I'll be out there today'

FOXBORO -- After missing Wednesday's practice to nurse his sore left shoulder, Tom Brady said Thursday morning he would return to practice and be ready to continue preparations for the Ravens in the AFC championship this Sunday at Gillette Stadium. The Patriots continue preparations on the lower practice field outside Gillette. 

"I'll be out there today so you don't have to worry about that," Brady said with a smile. Brady tied an NFL postseason record last Saturday night with six touchdown passes, including an NFL-record five TD passes in the first half. 

Brady has received several days off from practice on Wednesdays in the second half of the season. 

"It's not the first practice I've missed over the years," Brady laughed. 

Sunday's game will be on Sportsradio WEEI 93.7 FM.

Rivers: Ainge more patient than people think

After watching Rajon Rondo leave the game with a sore right wrist in the Celtics' win over Toronto Wednesday night at TD Garden, Celts coach Doc Rivers talked on the Dennis & Callahan Show about what life would be like without the point guard.

"No. Not for long-term," said Rivers when asked if the Celtics could survive without Rondo. "Obviously for short-term you could probably make-shirt and still win games. But you don't replace Rondo or any of the great players. They're irreplaceable. That's why they're great."

Rivers reiterated that the Celtics have been playing catch-up in regard to conditioning, with a chunk of the team coming into training camp out of shape due to the lockout.

"The facts are the facts. Physically more than mentally," said Rivers...

St. Pierre on D&C: Reed right about Flacco

Former Ravens quarterback Brian St. Pierre joined the Dennis & Callahan Show to discuss the AFC Championship matchup of the Patriots and Ravens on Sunday. St. Pierre said that Baltimore's only hope is to get consistent pressure on New England quarterback Tom Brady. If the Ravens fail to accomplish that, he suggested, the Pats could win in a blowout.

"You’ve got to hit Tom Brady if you’re Baltimore. ... It’s incumbent on the Ravens to get pressure on Tom," said St. Pierre. "Two or three years ago, absolutely they can. I don’t think they’re playing at the level, Baltimore that is, that they have in the past, so that is a big challenge. I do think they have matchups that can give New England fits. ... [But] if you’re a Patriots fan and you see Tom Brady sitting there patting the ball, you’re going to be in for a good day. You can probably shut that game off at halftime if he has time to throw....

Mashup: Jets' LT wants Ryan to tone it down

Running back LaDainian Tomlinson went on Showtime's "Inside the NFL" and talked about how the Jets struggled with internal strife during their 8-8 season. In the interview that aired Wednesday night, LT said the relationship between quarterback Mark Sanchez and receiver Santonio Holmes was especially poor, and it helped create a fractured locker room.

"It is as bad as I've ever been around, honestly," Tomlinson said. "And I've been around some locker rooms and quarterback-receiver situations and what-not. But it was as bad as I've been around."

Tomlinson assessed the blame for the poor chemistry on the guys who built the team: the general manager and coach.

"This is the type of football team that they wanted," said Tomlinson, the NFL's fifth-leading rusher. "Mike Tannenbaum, Rex Ryan are both brash, in-your-face type of style -- say whatever you want, just get it done on the field. And then it...

Rondo: Day-to-day with 'throbbing' wrist

Following a nasty spill with just over two minutes remaining in the third quarter Wednesday night, Rajon Rondo said he is "day-to-day" with a sore right wrist, an injury he said afterward "hurt more" than the grutesque dislocated elbow he suffered against the Heat in the second round of the playoffs last spring. 

"This was different," Rondo said of his fall, precipiated when Toronto's Linas Kleiza knocked him to the ground on a drive to the basket. "This was more painful, honestly. The other one was just more of a shock."

“Honestly, I was laughing right afterwards," added coach Doc Rivers. "I wasn’t [concerned] at first because I thought he was trying to get the flagrant. I thought he was laying down, trying to – you know. And then when he stayed down then I was concerned. But I didn’t know what it was. And then when I saw him grabbing his arm or hand I was...
