Brady playing through injury to left shoulder

Brady playing through injury to left shoulder

Still, Brady expects to play on Sunday against the New York Jets.

Brady initially said he had no knowledge of tampered footballs, but a NFL-ordered report from Ted Wells indicated that it was more than likely that Brady knew of the tampering.

Tom Brady grinned broadly as he addressed the anticipated questions Wednesday.

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 has had trouble with his left shoulder several times over his 18-year career, but he has never missed a game because of it.




The quarterback missed practice Tuesday after having an MRI on his left shoulder, but he should be good to go Week 6. This is some of the worst pass protection Brady's had during his career, and at age 40, that's worrisome.

Last season, Brady threw for five touchdowns and zero interceptions in his two games against the Jets, both of which resulted in Patriots wins. 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.

"This guy's like Father Time", defensive coordinator Kacy Rodgers said. I just do the best I can do. "Since I've been here, that's something that we've prided ourselves on as a defense, is stopping the run", Williams said. "We've been in some competitive games, and we're going keep fighting".

At the same time, the Patriots have focused their offense on more vertical passing plays this year. It is worth pointing out, however, that Brady trails - and will continue to face stiff competition from v New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees for all three records. They can't sack you if you're handing the ball off.
