Tom Brady practices on Wednesday

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady missed practice Tuesday, but is expected to be fine Sunday to face the Jets.

"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. Then, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport broke the news that Brady had suffered an AC joint sprain in his non-throwing shoulder during the team's Week 5 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.


Through the first five games of the season, Brady has been hit repeatedly.

"I'm good. I'm not anxious about it", he said when he was asked about his injured left shoulder. The 16 sacks are more than his total for the entire 2016 season.


He will not miss this Sunday's game against the Jets either, and the Patriots and Brady fantasy football owners catch a bit of a break as the Jets' defense is not exactly outstanding when it comes to rushing the quarterback.

Brady's been a hit a ton this season.


If there was any concern about Tom Brady potentially not playing Sunday against the Jets, the 40-year-old ended that debate when he spoke Wednesday at Gillette Stadium. Against the Panthers, he was sacked three times and hit seven times.
