Foot sprain not expected to keep Patriots' Brady out Sunday

The foot injury that kept New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady out of practice Wednesday has been described as a mild sprain by several Boston media outlets and is not likely to prevent him from playing Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The Boston Herald reported Thursday that Brady had no visible limp as he walked around the locker room on Wednesday.

It's unclear when Brady sustained the injury, and if it occurred in Sunday's loss at Cleveland. The quarterback, who was 19-of-36 passing for 224 yards against the Browns, conducted his regular Wednesday news conference.

Sunday night the suddenly struggling Patriots offense, which held the ball fewer than 22 minutes against the Browns, faces a blitz-happy Steelers defense that ranks fifth in sacks with 24.
