The internet was abuzz earlier today when ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter reported that Patriots QB Tom Brady would miss his second straight day of practice due to a shoulder injury. Yesterday, Brady missed practice due to a “non-injury related” reason. Needless to say, there was some concern among Patriots fans today when word on the street said Brady would miss another practice. However, Brady did practice with the team today and was listed as having limited participation due to a left shoulder injury in the team’s injury report. Luckily, the left shoulder is not Brady’s throwing shoulder.
NFL Network’s Jason La Canfora offered some more information about Brady’s injury and his availability for Sunday:
Brady’s return to practice follows a Wednesday report from Comcast SportsNet New England that Brady underwent an X-ray to check for a separation to his left, non-throwing shoulder, but everything checked out OK.
Brady suffered a “typical ding” to his shoulder, according to a source, and not something the team really is concerned with at this time. Barring some sort of totally unforeseen issue with the shoulder, both Brady and the team expect him to play against the Bills.
No need to worry Patriots fans. We’ll see #12 on the field Sunday as the Pats try and claim the #1 seed in the AFC playoffs.
