Report: Brady's shoulder will be fine

Amid the typical Patriots double-speak and secrecy regarding player injuries has emerged a report that the shoulder of quarterback Tom Brady should be fine.

Per Christopher L. Gasper of the Boston Globe, a source close to the team says that “there is no need for hysteria” regarding the mild injury Brady suffered when he was smushed on Friday night by Redskins defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth.

Though the source admitted that the shoulder is sore, the source added that “there are not any concerns at this time.”

Gasper’s source also sort of disputed coach Bill Belichick’s contention that Brady’s removal from the game was unrelated to the shoulder. 

“If it’s sore there is no sense going out and antagonizing it,” the source said.

Our guess is that Brady won’t play in the preseason finale, and that he’ll be ready to go when the Pats play the Bills in the opening game of the MNF doubleheader.

    That’s not just your guess. That’s the whole world’s guess.

    sounds about right.

    Gee, glad to hear his shoulder is OK, but did he ever find his gerbil after that hit Haynesworth laid on him?

    Tom Brady – Probable (Right Shoulder)
    Missed it, glad to see it’s back…
    Now all we need is Tony Romo out there throwing interceptions, then putting his cap on backwards with a stupid grin on his face laughing it up on the sideline with all of his buddies. Meanwhile Jerry Jones comes down and coaches guys up and undermines his head coach. While Vox Veritas aimlessly tries to explain it all.

    This Line will dictate whether they win the BS or have another 2008

    If Albert “The Baconator” Haynesworth fell on me, I’m pretty sure my arm would have to be amputated.

    “Our guess is that Brady won’t play in the preseason finale” was this even in question before he was “hurt”?

    Dude I totally agree.
    He’s a huge whimp – he took the whole season off last year just for a knee injury. I wish we had a tough QB on the Patriots. What’s worse, he got hit twice this preseason. I’ve never seen a QB take a hit before and he’s taking two? He’s totally not finishing the season and probably will retire after this year.
    Or after he wins his 4th super bowl, maybe he’ll stick around for another year of mediocrity.

    Oh man, you’ve got to tell that joke one more time! It keeps getting funnier and funnier each time you repeat it!
    I must say, the thirteenth time was the best.
    Seriously though, you must feel that you’ve come up with a real winner with the gerbil thing, huh?
    Let it die you witless dork. It’s not funny enough to repeat again.

    Gee, glad to hear his shoulder is OK, but did he ever find his gerbil after that hit Haynesworth laid on him?…
    Let’s see, Brady makes tens of millions of dollars a year in football salary and endorsements. He’s fathered a child with Bridget Moynahan, and his multi-millionaire super-model wife Gisele Bundchen is pregnant. And that is the best you can come up with…repeatedly?

    Funny, not funny – Who cares?
    Just watching you throw a hissy fit is reward enough.
    So… Did you hear the one about Brady, the two rabbis and a gerbil?

    As far as I’m concerned, that’s the end of it. Brady will be fine. Sorry haters.

    It really must suck to have to rely on the other teams QB to be hurt to win

    Patriots fans need to be warned that Brady will be eating alot of dirt this season. The O-line is subpar and all are full of oxycontin.

  21. Merlin6593 says: Aug 30, 2009 12:49 PM

    By all means…I am a Patriots fan…is the joke funny or is this just some meaningless dribble you are throwing out there yet again. Lets hear the punchline

    The O Line is as subpar as a line with three Pro Bowlers can be.
    Chowderhead.

    I hate that driving the QB to the ground call. These new rules are insane!!! They might as well play flag football out there. That’s good physical football lol.. F$%^ Brady and the Pats lol

    Merlin6593 shared ”It really must suck to have to rely on the other teams QB to be hurt to win” We want Brady healthy when we stomp the Pats. The O line for your team is a big concern and Brady will be even less mobile than he has in the past.
    Mark your schedule for the Colts, Pats game and watch the Colts run the Pats off the field. The Colts were not on the receiving end when the Pats were running up the score , but other teams were and they will continue to seek payback for Billy boys lack of sportsmanship
    Lastly, the Pats play in the easiest division in the AFC. Try playing in the AFC south. Colts rule!

  25. Merlin6593 says: Aug 31, 2009 10:17 AM

    Football guru…at least we have one fan that wants to play with both teams healthy. But run the pats off the field? Should be a good game.
    Billy boys lack of sportsmanship? I am assuming you are referring to the videotaping yet again. Let’s assume the pats are the only team in history to ever videotape or use steroids or HGH or my favorite the fabled pain killer scandal. They still went 18-1 (yes, they lost the big one) being the most scrutinized team in the league.

  26. footballnut says: Aug 31, 2009 12:17 PM

    Footballguru…yeah the AFC East certainly isn’t the strongest division, but we’ve handled the Colts and the others from the AFC South, but honestly the weakest division moniker belongs to the West…The Chiefs may actually take that division this year.
    But I certainly can’t wait for November 15th…should be a good one. What’s that, 8 years in a row the Colts have had the regular season matchup at home against the Pats? Not that it’s done purposely as the schedule is already defined years in advance, but still…just so happens that the Pats and Colts both finished second last year and the schedule had the AFC East second place team visit the second place team from the AFC South.
