Brady pops on, off injury report

Patriots' Brady looks to pass against the Ravens during the first half of their NFL football game in Baltimore, Maryland Reuters

Now that the lockout is over, we can go back to focusing on other stuff, like which quarterbacks on the injury report actually are injured, which ones actually aren’t, and which ones are injured but aren’t on the actual report.

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, who at one time was disclosed so frequently on the injury report as having a right shoulder problem that we thought it perhaps was congenital, appeared on Wednesday’s report as being a limited participant in practice with, yes, a right shoulder problem.

On Thursday, he was removed from the report altogether — even though the normal procedure would be to list him as fully participating with the injured body part mentioned in parentheses.

So, apparently, Brady is now fine.  Still, it would probably be wise for the Bills to try to put a little “hot sauce” on that wing.

    if a player is listed with one injury do they need to disclose any other injuries?

    Say listing a right shoulder in order to hide one or more other injuries and still keeping within the rules

    Pretty sure Belichick does this on purpose to get the opposing team to focus on the wrong things in practice.

    It must be a legitimate injury. It’s not like the Patriots would do something marginal. It’s never happened, it’s not happening now, and it can’t happen ever. The Patriots are as pure as driven snow and always have been.

    Nobody is as big of scammers on the injury report as the Bills! Frigging Fitzpatrick played for 10 weeks with broken ribs last year and it was never on the injury report once! SCAMMERS!

    Bill always plays the injury report because he can get away with it…. if you believed it, Brady would have had about 8 procedures to his shoulder by now….

    any injury report from the Pats is a smoke screen

    So you’re saying it would be good for one football team to try and hurt another football teams player on purpose, while focusing specifically on a part of their body that is already injured? I think thats just bad ethics… you call yourself a football writer!?
