Brady wasn’t wearing brace on Wednesday

Brady AP

After Patriots quarterback Tom Brady suffered a torn ACL to start the 2008 regular season, he began to wear a knee brace on his left leg.  For right-handed quarterbacks, that’s the leg most exposed to contact when a quarterback steps into a throws.

Brady felt so strongly about it that he advised other quarterbacks, like former Patriots backup Brian Hoyer, to wear a brace.

But Brady didn’t feel strongly enough about it to wear a knee brace on his left leg during Wednesday’s practice with the Buccaneers.  The knee was protected, per Tom Curran of CSNNE.com during Thursday’s PFT Live, with only a compression sleeve.

And so the Pats and Brady dodged a cannonball on Wednesday.  Moving forward, look for Brady to wear the brace at all times — when playing, practicing, jogging, walking, and pretty much any other human behavior that ends with an -ing.

    here’s hoping Giselle’s hair doesn’t get caught in it…

    Gisele’s leg will get scratched up…

    There’s a small chance that articles on Tom Brady’s knee might surpass the number of the all time leader … Chip Kelly’s starting QB decision.

    Did Tebow take any first team reps?????

    Steeler Nation wants to take time out of our busy day to remind everyone that we have six rings and you do not. Thanks.

    Anything with -ing? Not sure if Giselle will like that in the bedroom

    Now PFT left Eagles QB competition news for minute/minute update on Brady’s knees ?

  8. wolfmanpatriot says: Aug 15, 2013 2:21 PM

    Pitts has only 2 in this millennium, gramps.

  9. cheapglazers says: Aug 15, 2013 2:22 PM

    Tebow is third string not back-up. He likely will not make the 52-man roster and be assigned to the practice squad. He will then start privately complaining, become released and end up working at the Jesus Cares Outreach Ministry as a front line lunch lady (guy).

    The Old Man opted for a walker instead of a brace.

  11. herlies says: Aug 15, 2013 2:24 PM

    Apparently, Peyton Manning was also bumped yesterday during practice.

    Roger Goodell is on it, working a new rule to protect the statues during practice.

    Patriot Nation has 2 rings. Putin Nation has the other one.

    They should fire bill and cut brady over this

  14. canehouse says: Aug 15, 2013 2:27 PM

    a lot of nfl teams will fine players if a player that isn’t taped up turns an ankle and misses any time. Wonder if Brady isn’t getting fined… not that it would put a noticeable dent into his fortune :).

    You really have to question the intelligence of someone who posts the same thing … day after day after day.

    Brady is seen wearing a knee brace today in practice.

    This post and all future posts concerning Tom Brady should be accompanied with an obligatory pre-bred bikini pic of Gisele.

    I really do respect Tom Brady. He’s awesome. 50 touchdowns in a season is amazing. He is consistently great. But it drives me nuts that anytime anything happens with him, there’s so many stories about it.

  20. bucrightoff says: Aug 15, 2013 2:37 PM

    Interestingly I learned the Bucs actually require their QBs to wear knee braces in practices. I wonder if thats how most teams do it, but it certainly makes sense to mitigate risk.

    Really. What makes for a busy day spending it in mommy’s basement? Never mind, I don’t want to know. :)

    And in other news, RG3 got a pimple. The medical staff raced onto the practice field to apply Clearasil.

    Film at eleven……

    I can’t believe how many of you actually think Giselle sleeps with the Nancy-Boy. She’s what some would call a beard people.

    did all the commenters know that the pats cheated when they won all of their super bowls?

    Wow, you guys are all so imaginative. How about a post about Brady where you don’t mention his wife?

    They are about as imaginative as Rex Ryan foot, Vikings pleasure cruise, and Saints bounty jokes

    He won’t do that again. All he has to worry about now is sheet burns on his knee. Lucky bastard.

    CKL, the most astute poster on this site, provided us this info hours ago. But thanks anyway, PFT.

  30. piratefreedom says: Aug 15, 2013 2:55 PM

    Tebow doesn’t have practice squad eligibility
    he’s been in the league too long and has played in too many games.

    If he is in the league this year it will be as part of someone’s 53

    I agree with you and I’m a Pats fan. But it’s hard to blame the media TOO much because it gets clicks/views etc. and we fans can always change the channel or not click. Once I realized it wasn’t a serious injury it was all good.

    SO glad he’s wearing the brace now though. I watched the practice cut in live on Sportscenter and saw it for myself.

  32. skoobyfl says: Aug 15, 2013 3:02 PM

    Swimming with it on might make it rust, so that -ING is out.

  33. patriotinvasion says: Aug 15, 2013 3:06 PM

    If I had it my way, we’d keep 12 in a secure bubble at all times before and after meaningful games. The temperature would be a perfect 72.5 degrees Fahrenheit and all would be right with the world.

  34. s0merand0mguy says: Aug 15, 2013 3:06 PM

    And now Brady will wear his brace when he sleeps at night.

    What a target for a defense.

    Not a Pat’s fan, however, that Buc’s lineman either should NOT have bull-rushed, or as soon as he felt the O-linean on his heels, should have immediately stopped. This was a controlled scrimmage. Also, why wasn’t a Pat’s coach behind the O-line, ready to blow a whistle to stop plays before they get out of hand? Nobody, much less a key member, such as first-string QB is supposed to get injured. Pat’s season without Brady is a complete washout.

    Turns out it was just menstrual cramps causing water to bloat in his knee. he is fine but getting near menopause.

  43. trollingforjustice says: Aug 15, 2013 3:51 PM

    Brady didnt like the brace so he took it off and threw it into a pond somewhere in Connecticut….

  44. dashad5432 says: Aug 15, 2013 3:53 PM

    You always got to wear protection

  45. tedmurph says: Aug 15, 2013 3:57 PM

    The Celtics have the most rings in the NBA(17). Not even close, unless you count the ones the Lakers won in Minny. Third place team is way behind. Yet, nobody in Boston would do the ’17 rings thing’. They’d be laughed out of the room by their own fans. That’s how dumb you sound 6rings. I don’t even bother to read your posts anymore. Take your tired act and go away.

    I think jimmyt is jealous of Giselle.

    Yes but he has made the same or very similar comment in every single thread on this site for weeks.

    He contributes absolutely nothing to the discussion and given the Steelers were 8-8 last year and shaping up to be no better this year, there’s nothing in the current Steelers team to back up his obnoxiousness.

  49. trollaikman8 says: Aug 15, 2013 4:54 PM

    Giselle blamed the injury on Wes Welker.

    I don’t remember seeing a brace once last season on gameday.

    One of those rings belongs to the Seattle Seahawks who beat you fair and square. If you had any honor, you’d give it back.

  53. richndc says: Aug 15, 2013 10:31 PM

    He may not have been wearing a brace, but I heard he was spotted chasing tranny hookers downtown while wearing an unchanged, week old colostomy bag he snatched off an invalid octogenarian during a recent visit to a rest home! Go get em Tommy!! catch em, then bust that bag over their face!! You are a champ!!
