Tom Brady battling cold, not worried about Super Bowl health

CHANDLER, Ariz. — Tom Brady is dealing with a cold days before the Super Bowl but says he’ll be OK.

The New England Patriots quarterback sounded under the weather during his session with the media on Wednesday. He rubbed the back of his right hand under his nose at one point.

He says he’s been fighting a cold but ”I’ll be good.”

Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman laughed when told the news and said, ”His arm doesn’t have a cold.”

Brady sounded healthier on Tuesday when he was one of the most popular interview subjects during Super Bowl Media Day.

Still, he participated fully in Wednesday’s first Super Bowl practice of the week. The practice report listed him with an ankle injury.

Starting rookie center Bryan Stork (knee), linebacker Dont’a Hightower (shoulder), defensive tackle Chris Jones (elbow) and defensive lineman Sealver Siliga (foot) all participated on a limited basis.

Stork missed the Patriots’ 45-7 win over the Indianapolis Colts in the AFC championship game after hurting his right knee in the first half the previous week in a 35-31 division round win over the Baltimore Ravens.

The defending champion Seahawks meet the three-time champion Patriots on Sunday in Glendale.
