Brady wasn’t wearing brace on Wednesday

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.

  1. 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.

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

  3. 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).

  4. 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.

  6. 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.

    Unlike you, most of us don’t consider trolling PFT to be a busy day.

  9. 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.

  10. 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. 🙂

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

    Film at eleven……

  13. 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.

  14. 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

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

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

  17. 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.

  19. 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.

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

    What a target for a defense.

    “d’s are going to break Tom Brady’s knee, he’s going to be on IR like RG3”

    The team you root for has 6 rings. You just have a bottle of lotion and sadness.

    There, fixed your statement.

  23. 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.

  24. 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.

    Uh …. T.M.I.!

  25. 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.

    I give the steelers fan credit for being funny. Even i liked the snarkiness of his post.
    ______

    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.

    You should change your name to 5 rings and a gift.

  28. @ObnoxiousSteelerFans

    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.

  29. 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!!
