Brady turns tables on "great player" Suggs

By Tom E. Curran

FOXBORO -- Late in his Friday morning press conference, Tom Brady was asked if he left Terrell Suggs off of his Pro Bowl ballot as the Ravens outside linebacker bragged of doing with Brady earlier in the week.

Brady shifted uncomfortably when asked about Suggs and seemed genuinely surprised to hear Suggs didn't vote for him. "He's a great player." said Brady. "I didn't get to vote. I was sick. So I guess I left everyone off my ballot. But I would have voted for him. He's a great player. And such a nice guy."

And somewhere in Owings Mills, Md., Suggs' shoulders slumped.

Right guard Dan Connolly (concussion), Brandon Deaderick (shoulder), James Sanders and Mike Wright (concussion) all missed Friday's practice. If Connolly can't go, backup Ryan Wendell will likely be making his first career start.
