New England quarterback Tom Brady left today’s practice early due to an injured left knee. According to numerous reporters on the scene, it did not appear serious, and we now have confirmation of that belief.
According to NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport, Brady suffered a knee sprain, and “everyone can breath”. Brady will undergo more tests tonight, but the main thing that can be taken out of this, is Brady will be just fine.
In an additional report from ESPN.com’s Adam Schefter, the MRI on Brady’s knee came up negative, and he is now day to day.
I am sure that Belichick will give a long, elaborate speech on how the Pats plan to use Brady throughout the rest of the preseason, and how Bill feels about what has transpired over the last few hours (sarcasm…keeping it light).
Twitter momentarily blew up today, and honestly, despite most of the reports being positive, I was feeling pretty scared until the final reports surfaced. All of ‘Patriots Nation’ can now breath, and focus on the beginning of the regular season.
Brady is obviously the most important cog in the New England Patriots machine, and it is great news to hear that he will be okay as we head towards the start of the 2013 season.
