Brady says sprained shoulder will be fine — PATRIOTS NOTEBOOK

Brady says sprained shoulder will be fine — PATRIOTS NOTEBOOK

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady missed practice on Tuesday and was limited again on Wednesday due to a sprained AC joint in his left shoulder, sending up flags of concern for his status ahead of Sunday's game against the New York Jets. This is some of the worst pass protection Brady's had during his career, and at age 40, that's worrisome. "We know that he's the head of the offense, so if we can get to him and affect him as much as possible, we can affect the game".

Brady has sustained 33 QB hits in five games, putting him on pace for well over 100 hits on the season if he plays all 16 games.

Brady and company will go on the road in Week 6 facing off against the Jets at MetLife Stadium.

"I'll be there Sunday", Brady said. Unsurprisingly, the Patriots have taken the division 14 times since Brady became the starter in 2001, including every year since Brady's season-ending knee injury.

Brady is seeing more pressure and taking more licks.

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady had an MRI on his left shoulder, but results came back negative.

The Patriots record is now 3-2, tied for first place in the AFC East with the Jets and the Buffalo Bills.

Brady reportedly suffered the sprain when sacked by Carolina's Julius Peppers two games ago, and the injury was aggravated during last Thursday's game at Tampa Bay. The only outlier will be when they face the Jets on Sunday. In comparison, the best quarterbacks of Brady's generation, Drew Brees, Brett Favre, Peyton Manning, Aaron Rodgers, Ben Roethlisberger and Kurt Warner, just to name a few, have combined for six Super Bowls since Brady's first start in 2001.

For fantasy football owners of players on the Patriots, this is certainly good news.
