Tom Brady to Patriots Fans: 'Don't Worry'

Tom Brady to Patriots Fans: 'Don't Worry'

On Tuesday, Brady missed his first practice of the season.

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady had an MRI on his left shoulder this week and was diagnosed with an AC Joint sprain, according to NBC Sports Boston's Mike Giardi.

Last year, the New England offensive line allowed 73 QB hits all year, including the four games Brady missed due to suspension. Since this game has a lot more meaning than originally thought, don't expect the Patriots to take the Jets lightly.

At his current rate, Brady is going to break several records in the next couple of years.

Tom Brady isn't 100 percent healthy.

Since 2010, the Jets have just three wins against Brady. The Buffalo Bills are also sporting a record of 3-2. Since Week 1 against the Kansas City Chiefs, Brady has totaled at least 300 passing yards in each game.

"He's had such a great year", Brady said. He referenced increased telephone communication between Brady and a Patriots equipment assistant around the time of the incident, and the fact that Brady made it very hard to turn over and access his texts and phone records as principal reasons for the conclusion. With that in mind, defenses have been able to design plays to hit Brady with more frequency. However, he still won the Super Bowl that February.

Although is dealing with an injury, the five-time Super Bowl champion won't be missing any time. Can he sustain at this level of playing time?

For fantasy football owners of players on the Patriots, this is certainly good news. It has seemingly been a lose-lose situation during a handful of National Football League playoffs over the last decade.

Brady is seeing more pressure and taking more licks. "I can't say enough good things about everything he's meant to our offense". Brady has practically matched that overall success by himself. It took him eight games to reach 154 snaps past year. He has thrown for 11 touchdowns with one interception and another pick-6 that was officially ruled a fumble. The NFL has routinely seen stars such as Favre and Manning fall off a cliff in their late 30s, but somehow not Brady. Unfortunately for Gang Green, the Brady Era does not appear to have an end in sight.
