Brady tells Patriots fans not to worry about his shoulder

Brady tells Patriots fans not to worry about his shoulder

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady missed practice Tuesday due to a reported left shoulder injury, although the team did not provide a reason for the reigning Super Bowl MVP's absence. According to Michael Giardi of NBC Sports Boston, Brady re-aggravated a shoulder injury that he originally hurt against the Panthers on October 1. The good news is that the injury is in his left shoulder - not his throwing shoulder.

"We'll put an injury report out after practice like we always do, " Belichick said when asked if Brady would be at Wednesday's midday practice.

Brady has been under pressure so far this season, taking 16 sacks - one more than he took in all of 2016.

Brady says he'll be on the field Sunday to play the New York Jets in a fight for first place in the AFC East.

Brady's been a hit a ton this season.

Brady is 40-years-old and has never taken a beating like this in his football life. During a time when nearly all quarterback's bodies break down (late 30s, early 40s), Brady has not missed a game he has been eligible to play in since that 2008 season. Against the Panthers, he was sacked three times and hit seven times.
