Tom Brady described as day-to-day with mild knee sprain

Patriots fans can breathe a sigh of relief.

Tom Brady, who left practice after being knocked down and experiencing pain in his left knee, is apparently going to be fine.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports that Brady’s injury has been diagnosed as a sprain and is not serious. Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that the MRI on Brady’s knee was negative and he now is considered day to day.

Brady went down during a joint practice with the Buccaneers, when Tampa Bay defensive end Adrian Clayborn pushed New England left tackle Nate Solder into Brady. When he went to the ground, Brady immediately grabbed his left knee and appeared to be in pain. He was able to get up and walk, but he left the practice field.

Fortunately, this was not a repeat of his 2008 ACL tear, or even anything close to that serious. We may see more Ryan Mallett and Tim Tebow for the rest of the preseason, but Brady should be good to go when the games count.

    Apparently Tebow threw a TD when he took over for Brady today. QB controversy is brewing…

    Great, its always good when a major injury is averted.

    Sorry haters, he’s ok’

    Glad to hear that it is something (relatively) mild and Brady will be back on the field. Even if you are rooting against the Patriots you shouldn’t be wishing injury on them because of your fanaticism for your team. Take them on full strength and you know one way or another where your team measures up.

    Glad Brady will be OK. You hate to see injuries in the preseason. Plus I was hoping the Bucs new secondary would get a chance to practice against one of the best!

    Nate Solder just exhaled

  7. ampats says: Aug 14, 2013 6:41 PM

    Great news !!

    I am looking forward to the Super Bowl in NY as I plan on attending the events Super Bowl weekend and going to the game to see Brady hoist #4

    Good to hear, he is the ultimate American hero!!

  9. blue18hutthutt says: Aug 14, 2013 6:46 PM

    Mallet would’ve taken that team to 11-5 anyway

  10. bmoreravens1012013 says: Aug 14, 2013 6:47 PM

    I don’t wish injury on anyone. As much as I can’t stand the patriots, I wish Brady a speedy recovery and hope its not serious.

  11. creepingdeth says: Aug 14, 2013 6:47 PM

    …aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaannnnnnnd breathe!

  12. jpb12 says: Aug 14, 2013 6:47 PM

    Just as well cause they don’t have a RG and they have the Lions next week.

    Suh would destroy him.

  13. 12444uggg says: Aug 14, 2013 6:47 PM

    Like I said, no big deal. I wounder what BB told Schiano?

  14. hoops737 says: Aug 14, 2013 6:51 PM

    This only increases Brady’s fear of pressure in the pocket.

    Put a little heat on him and he can’t make the throws. Giants proved that, twice.

  15. swagger52 says: Aug 14, 2013 6:59 PM

    When you are as old as Brady, no injury is minor.

  16. steelerdynasty2010 says: Aug 14, 2013 7:05 PM

    Bet it’s on the injury report ALL YEAR

  17. surfinbird1 says: Aug 14, 2013 7:13 PM

    Good news,but I still think they have to take a hard look at their backup qb’s.

  18. sportsfan69 says: Aug 14, 2013 7:48 PM

    Tom Brady’s timing with his wide receivers shouldn’t matter? He’s playing the Jets and Bills twice, that’s four easy wins.

  19. loftonbomb80 says: Aug 14, 2013 7:52 PM

    Don’t wish him ill, but would’ve been interesting to see how the Patriots would’ve done without him. Being a Packer fan, I can relate with the thought of losing Rodgers.

  20. drunkwino says: Aug 14, 2013 7:56 PM

    Tell me the Pats weren’t trying a kneel down against Schiano.

  21. braven4evr says: Aug 14, 2013 7:59 PM

    Did he call for a flag?

  22. aaroncurryisbust says: Aug 14, 2013 8:00 PM

    Lucky break.

  23. mackcarrington says: Aug 14, 2013 8:09 PM

    Interesting that when Brady gets a mild injury, he removes himself. Robert Griffin sustains a major injury and convinces the coaches that he’s fine so he can keep playing.

  24. thegloriousone says: Aug 14, 2013 9:03 PM

    How long will Adrian Clayborn’s league suspension be?

    When does the new rule about not pushing offensive lineman backward take effect?

  25. lostsok says: Aug 14, 2013 9:40 PM

    I saw a thing on ESPN about Brady “playing until he’s 50.”

    The only collection of humans more deluded than Pats fans are ESPN Pat’s fans.

    The beginning of the end was last year. Brady was already showing a weaker arm last year, and with a receiving corp that has gone from elite to wearing “Hello, My Name Is…” tags…

    DONE.

    Gonna be fun to watch!

  26. phillynac says: Aug 14, 2013 9:44 PM

    Yeah moron, there is no difference between a playoff game and training camp.

  27. wilnel1984 says: Aug 14, 2013 9:44 PM

    I’ll bet there were some good Irish Catholic folks rubbing their rosary beads anxiously today.

  28. leoimpr says: Aug 14, 2013 9:48 PM

    the curse of Tim Tebow continues. He got to NE, Welker was traded, Gronk got injured, Hernandez got arrested and now Brady.

  29. quickstrong says: Aug 14, 2013 9:55 PM

    Does anyone remember controversy the bucs rushing the QB with 1 second left on the clock last year??? just wondering what Schiano is telling his players to do?????

  30. TheWizard says: Aug 14, 2013 10:03 PM

    Brady is obviously the guy when he’s healthy, but it sure would be fun to see how life goes on without him starting.

    I’m not sure Mallett has the “it” factor, and after him it’s you know who.

    The Pats will be anything but boring to watch.

    Thats how Brady stays healthy enough to GET to s auperbowl. Something the young fly by the seat of their pants players don’t understand.
    Griffin was stupid to keep playing when he had to know the knee was done.

    “In an official statement from Commissioner Goodell, ‘Mr. Clayborn and Mr. Solder are facing league expulsion.'”

  33. ronaldmexico7 says: Aug 15, 2013 12:54 AM

    Belli never lies about injuries….

  34. dman6015 says: Aug 15, 2013 9:02 AM

    “Apparently Tebow threw a TD when he took over for Brady today. QB controversy is brewing…”

    The only controversy is in your head, nyjetsfanatic. Speaking of the Jets, how’s it feel to be associated with a team who wasted a year of Tebow’s talents and who now have a QB controversy of their own. Good luck if it goes to Sanchez!

  35. mc1439 says: Aug 15, 2013 9:48 AM

    This is good news because I don’t want any excuses when the Texans get retribution. #dayofreckoning

  36. sugarray1 says: Aug 15, 2013 11:07 AM

    Never believe BB, he is a cheater. Strange things can happen to a surgically repaired knee. Nate Solder is a big dude, pain has a source…….just sayin.

  37. bighurt228 says: Aug 15, 2013 12:07 PM

    @sugarray
    U speak English??. Just sayin

  38. thomasbradybestofalltime says: Aug 15, 2013 4:15 PM

    PATs have dominated BR’s over and over again. Lewis , in jail or out of jail, still can’t correct the 3-8 record over the years.

    Luck happens and the Ravens got lucky last year. Watch the highlights this year!!

    Sugardouche….are you serious? Still dwelling on that cheat thing that every other franchise is doing TODAY!
    REALLY?
    Always remeber 3-8 vs. PAts….owning you baby!!!
