Report: Brady has tennis elbow

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is dealing with a form of tennis elbow, according to Pro Football Weekly. PFW quotes a league source as saying the team is resting Brady as much as it can during the week as opposed to his normal practice regimen.

Also known as lateral epicondylitis, tennis elbow is an inflammation of the tendons on the outside of the elbow, and usually comes as the result of overuse. Typically, surgery is not needed for tennis elbow, a common ailment in athletes, unless it is chronically persistent.

On Wednesday, Brady was asked about his health.

“I feel great,” Brady said. “I feel great. I’m excited about this week and I’ll be out there on Sunday, as I am all week ... unless they tell me I can’t be. I’ll be out there, I feel great, and I’m going to try to...

Pats list 11 as limited at practice

FOXBORO -- Linebacker Jeff Tarpinian missed practice Wednesday with an undisclosed illness. He was among three players who missed the Patriots walkthrough inside the Dana Farber Field House. The Patriots will practice on Thursday and Friday before wrapping up with a walkthrough on Saturday and traveling to Philadelphia for Sunday afternoon's game.  The Patriots listed 11 as limited at practice, including Matt Light, who left Gillette Stadium after Monday's win over the Chiefs wearing a walking boot on his right foot.

For the Eagles, Michael Vick did not take part in practice in Philadelphia but rather tested his two broken ribs on the side with some throwing. Star receiver and returner DeSean Jackson did not practice with a foot injury. Wide receiver Jeremy Maclin (shoulder/hamstring) returned but was limited. Here is Wednesday's complete rundown:

Ruff: Lack of response 'won't happen again'
By: DJ Bean

Sabres coach Lindy Ruff told reporters after Wednesday's morning skate that the Sabres are more focused on playing a "hard game" than on providing an overdue response to Milan Lucic's hit on goaltender Ryan Miller earlier this month. 

Asked if retaliation was on the Sabres' minds, Ruff replied, "I don't think [NHL disciplinarian Brendan] Shanahan would like to hear that."

Though Ruff was brief with his answers, he did indicate that if something similar were to happen, he would expect more of a response from his team. Lucic hit Miller in the first period on Nov. 12, leaving the goaltender with a concussion.  

"I'll answer the question one more time," Ruff said. "We were disappointed in our response, and that won't happen again." 

The Bruins have won nine games in a row, and now have as many points (24) as the Sabres. With both teams two points behind the Maple Leafs and focused on...

Three missing from Pats practice

FOXBORO -- The linebacker trio of Dane Fletcher, Jeff Tarpinian and Brandon Spikes were the only three players not spotted at Patriots practice indoors Wednesday at the Dana Farber Field House. 

Fletcher has missed the last four games with a thumb injury while Tarpinian missed Monday's game after turning up sick late last week. Brandon Spikes injured his knee against the Giants on Nov. 6 and hasn't practiced since reportedly straining the MCL in his right knee. 

After leaving Gillette Stadium in walking boot on his right foot on Monday night, Patriots left tackle Matt Light was in attendance at practice, a sign that he may have avoided a serious injury in the win over the Chiefs. 

The team held a walkthrough indoors in advance of their game this Sunday afternoon in Philadelphia against the Eagles. The team will practice on Thanksgiving and again on Friday before another walkthrough on Saturday in advance of the late afternoon...

Reid: Vick won't practice, day-to-day

During a conference call with New England media, Eagles coach Andy Reid said Michael Vick would not practice on Wednesday, still taking time to heal two broken ribs. Taking Vick's place in practice is Vince Young, who led the Eagles to a 17-10 win over the Giants, keeping their flickering playoff hopes alive. 

"He won't practice," Reid said of Vick. "Just take it day-by-day, see how he does here. Vince will take the reps. See how he's doing [Thursday]. He threw [Tuesday] a little bit and little bit more as we go on here."

Young led an 18-play, 80-yard drive that ended in the go-ahead touchdown in the fourth quarter Sunday night. Vick, who missed his first game of the season Sunday, did throw on Tuesday and will continue to throw to test his broken ribs. 

Reid said receiver Jeremy Maclin will return to practice on Wednesday after missing Sunday night's win against the Giants with shoulder and hamstring injuries....
