For the second consecutive week, New England Patriots starting quarterback Tom Brady was limited in practice Wednesday, as per Mike Florio of NBC Sports.

A recent knee injury has been bothering Brady lately. Last week, he was listed as questionable due to an illness against the New York Jets.

In Week 13, they'll take on a win-hungry Minnesota Vikings team at home.

They've done a terrific job on their own turf this season. In five games they have yet to lose a matchup at Gillette Stadium.

Losing Brady in this matchup would be a big blow for the Patriots, who are currently looking for their ninth win.

The 41-year-old signal-caller has been the main face of the Patriots' offense for the past 18 years. He has not shown signs of slowing down this season, and has continued his strong play.

Now in his 19th year in the league, Brady continues to prove that he is still one of the best quarterbacks out there.

His 2018 campaign has been as impressive as his previous seasons. He has passed for 3,031 yards and 19 touchdowns with no interceptions in 11 games.

Despite being hurt last week, Brady still opted to play and it paid off for the Patriots. He passed for 283 yards and two touchdowns in their 27-13 win versus the Jets.

The win was the Patriots' seventh in their last eight outings. It was also Brady's 24th victory against their AFC East rivals.

Also listed on the Patriots' injury list are Dwayne Allen and Nate Ebner, who both have knee injuries and Julian Edelman, who has a foot injury.
