Tom Brady missed New England Patriots practice on Friday.  It might be Jimmy Garoppolo time for the Patriots on Sunday1!!1!!!  OK, not really.  Brady missed practice because he is sick.  He will play on Sunday assuming the illness doesn't take some crazy turn.

Rob Gronkowski also missed Patriots practice on Friday because of a personal issue.  He is also expected to be on the field for New England Sunday.

For the Titans, Kendall Wright and Da'Norris Searcy are both out after not practicing all week.  Searcy missing this game is a huge blow for the Titans.  He's the best player in the secondary that isn't on IR, and they are facing Brady this week.  That's not a good formula (in case you didn't know).

It has been a tough year for Wright.  This will be the 5th game he has missed this season.  The Titans picked up Wright's 5th year option before the season.  He will need a big season next year if the Titans are going to invest in him long-term.
