Patriots QB Tom Brady Expected To Play Through Shoulder Injury

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is telling New England fans not to worry about the left shoulder injury that kept him out of practice earlier in the week. According to Michael Giardi of NBC Sports Boston, Brady re-aggravated a shoulder injury that he originally hurt against the Panthers on October 1. Brady injured his left (non-throwing) shoulder Thursday in a win over the Buccaneers. They'll release their first practice report later on Wednesday, which should shed a little more light on Brady's ailment - or at least his level of participation in Wednesday's practice.

He will not miss this Sunday's game against the Jets either, and the Patriots and Brady fantasy football owners catch a bit of a break as the Jets' defense is not exactly outstanding when it comes to rushing the quarterback.

Brady has been under pressure so far this season, taking 16 sacks - one more than he took in all of 2016. The Jets have registered just seven sacks this season, the second worst mark in the NFL.

Brady's been a hit a ton this season.

"I'm good. I'm not anxious about it", he said when he was asked about his injured left shoulder. Eventually, the hits are going to take their toll on a 40-year-old player.
