Patriots Friday injury report: Tom Brady (shoulder) returns to full participation, probable

10.25.13 at 4:29 pm ET

FOXBORO ‘€” There were a few eyebrows raised when Tom Brady (right shoulder) showed up on the Thursday injury report as limited.

That lasted for exactly one day as the quarterback returned to full participation Friday and is officially listed by the team as “probable” for Sunday’s game against the Dolphins.

Brady is among six Patriots listed as probable while cornerback Aqib Talib (hip), (back/forearm) and wide receiver Danny Amendola (concussion/groin) were again listed as limited in Friday’s workout. Tight end Rob Gronkowski and special teams captain Matthew Slater were limited again but are officially probable after returning to action last week against the Jets.

In addition, defensive lineman Tommy Kelly (knee) and running back/returner Leon Washington missed all three days of practice for a third straight week and were ruled out.

Kelly did walk through the locker room Friday during media availability and – while putting a big black sleeve on his right knee – said, “I’m day-to-day and that’s all I can say right now until I get back on the field. That’s from the big guy [Bill Belichick].”

Here’s Friday’s full report:
