FOXBOROUGH, Mass., Dec. 30 (UPI) -- New England quarterback Tom Brady went through his second day of practice Friday and was listed as probable for the Patriots' Sunday meeting with Buffalo.

Brady missed practice this week and the NFL Network reported Friday he had suffered a sprained left shoulder.

Coach Bill Belichick declined to be specific Friday, answering a question concerning what Brady could do in practice by saying -- "play quarterback, the usual thing."

Belichick was asked whether Brady had been injured earlier in the week.

"I think we covered that," he said.

Brady has thrown for 4,897 yards this season, second behind Drew Brees of New Orleans. Brees has broken Dan Marino's single-season record for passing yards and Brady is positioned to do so as well.

New England has won the AFC East title and has clinched a first-round playoff bye. A victory over Buffalo Sunday would give the Patriots home-field advantage throughout the playoffs.
