Report: Tom Brady has AC joint sprain in left shoulder

AP

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady wasn’t at the portion of Tuesday’s practice open to the media and there wasn’t any word from the team about his whereabouts as they aren’t required to release an injury report until Wednesday.

According to a report from Tom Curran of NBC Sports Boston, his absence was due to a test on his left shoulder. Curran reports that Brady had an MRI done on his non-throwing shoulder and that the results were negative when it came to a serious injury.

Curran’s colleague Mike Giardi reports that Brady’s injury is an AC joint sprain and that he was initially hurt on a sack by Julius Peppers in their Week Four loss to the Panthers and then aggravated it against the Buccaneers last week.

Brady, who has been sacked 16 times this season, is expected to practice the rest of the week and play against the Jets this Sunday.

  1. When you have no O line, resulting in numerous sacks, injuries will happen! Just ask Tony Romo for the majority of his career!!! Yet, he still has the 4th highest QBR in NFL history 🙂

  2. This is an old injury that seems to flare up from time to time. In SB46, Brady was completing everything until he was sacked by Justin Tuck and then he missed a few passes including a bad pick by Chase Blackburn and missing Wes Welker.

  3. Unwise not resigning Bennett at TE. Unwise abandoning the “Big Power running back” approach. Loosing Edelman of course is tough. It all fell on Brady’s shoulders to carry team. Couple all this with a soft defense. The Pats have had seasons like this in the past.

    Looks like his shoulders can’t carry the load.

  5. Not to take the Jets lightly, but it seems like a perfect time to let Brady eat his avocado ice cream and heal. I think JG can get the job done

  6. He’s getting wrecked out there. This was bound to happen and they’re lucky it’s not worse. I’d say sit him and roll with Jimmy against the Jets… But we know Brady himself would never allow it.

    Oh god he will be fine its just a sprain.

    Have you ever had an AC joint sprain ? Can barely move your arm above your head when it happens

  8. Nate Solder can’t get out of his own way even in a contract year, and opposing D’s are easily blowing up an undersized Andrews at center. Wish I could see a quick solution, but something tells me there’s no quick fix here. I also can’t Brady holding up for a whole season of this. Jimmy G may get his chance sooner than he thinks.

    “Loosing”?

    Fact: GREAT move to trade for Cooks with Edelman now not available.

    Bennett is a yapper and a distraction at times, so 1 year was plenty with him.

    The biggest problem with the RBs in NE, as I have been proven right yet again with, is McDaniels subs the RBs at too feverish a pace, to the point it tips off the D who can tee off.

    There is absolutely ZERO reason to sub 2 backs on a drive, unless it’s 3rd and long and you want to go scatback in a lone set, with Amendola in the slot.

    Use less slot, use more 2 back sets like this:

    Gillislee/White (White can shift to the slot on some downs and be used a chess piece)
    Burkhead/Lewis

    There is literally never a reason to sub the RBs on one drive.

    Throw in the idea that Brady is holding it longer than ever before based on the routes they are trying to hit, and voila, the odds increase he can get dinged easier.

    But, there is no tougher QB in the league.

    While the OL can be better, so can the playcalling and not holding it on every pass play for 4 plus seconds as teams rush 4 and drop 7.

    This isn’t rocket science. McDaniels needs to be on the hotseat if this annoying little habit of his awful playcalling without All Pro weaponry ever, tends to continue.

    Even on the Brady sack/INT to Clowney, he had the ball for 5 seconds and was rolling out!

    Preposterous…He needs to get the ball out like he always has. He hasn’t been doing it, because they’re obsessed with deeper routes to Cooks and Hogan.

    It was on Brady’s shoulders to throw to victory in nearly every big game the Patriots have played in the last 4 years. They had to try something different than Blount because he was shut down by Denver twice, Seattle and Atlanta. Gillislee is going to come around.

    Bennett didn’t stop Brady from getting killed in the Super Bowl, but it would have been nice to keep him around. Allen is supposedly a great blocker, but he has been a huge disappointment so far.

    Maybe, but I think you would need the whole OL and DL to drag Brady off the field.

    NFL players can barely lift their arms above their head after every game. Pain management isn’t an issue for these guys.

    With Edelman out and nothing from Allen they’re going more vertical. It would be nice if they got MMitcell back this yr.

    I will give you the Blackburn throw, particularly when there were better options. However, A healthy Gronk never lets Blackburn catch that ball. It was a dumb throw to a hobbled Gronk.

    I won’t give you the Welker drop through. It was right in his hands. Both hands!!! Brady had to throw it where he did as the LB on coverage passed Welker off, but Brady had to throw it where it couldn’t be picked off as if that LB stayed in coverage.

    Wrong

    _____________________________________________________________

    This is the same o-line as last year. Solder and Cannon are a bit banged up and Brady is holding the ball longer without Edelman as a safety valve. 10 days between games should see some improvement out of the line and the self scouting in the play calling department should yield results as well. The D is far more of a concern, not much depth and it shows.

  23. … sorry, I’m wrong

    20-FOURTEEN – Richard Sherman FIRST team All-Pro, led NFL in INTs, 2nd consecutive Super Bowl, 16 starts

    20-FIFTEEN – OBJ, 2nd team All-Pro, career high yards and tds, 15 starts (due to the brawl with Norman)

  24. Unwise not resigning Bennett at TE. Unwise abandoning the “Big Power running back” approach. Loosing Edelman of course is tough. It all fell on Brady’s shoulders to carry team. Couple all this with a soft defense. The Pats have had seasons like this in the past.

    The depth is without question there. Wise, Butler and Marsh have looked good, even if completely different players.

    Rowe got dinged, but not having McClellin or Branch has hurt.

    We beat KC and Carolina with HIghtower, Branch and McClellin. MCCellin is the spy on the weakside, our best coverage LB, especially on RBs.

  28. 2 seed I meant above..KC likely has the 1 seed locked up unless injuries send them spiraling from here on out and people catch onto their one dimensional offense.

  29. Brady is not a “tough QB”. He doesn’t fight through sacks and contact like other QBs. In fact he generally will fold pretty quickly with pressure in his face. He’s very smart and used a quick drop back and quick release to perfection. Up until this year he’s been sacked very little because of his incredible ability to read a D and get the ball of fast, but to see he is a tough QB is simply not true.

    You’re sole judgement on if a QB is good or not is if they make you say “Wow”?

    How about this then:

    Brady Home Record: 102-19 (84.3%)
    Rodgers Home Record: 59-15 (79.7%)

    Both very good.

    Brady Road Record: 84-37 (69.4%)
    Rodgers Road Record: 38-35 (52.0%)

    Rodgers has almost as many road losses as Brady in 7 less seasons of starting. That’s horrendous. That’s a “Wow” moment.

    Rodgers is definitely talented and can make jaw dropping plays, but he’s far away from being as good a QB as Tom Brady.

    You have no idea what you’re talking about. Brady has played with injuries other QB’s have not. The difference is you usually never hear about injuries because the Pats don’t disclose them if they don’t miss practice. Unlike a certain QB in a steel town that over blows every ding way out of proportion.

  34. Never seen a dude NOT get hit as much as Brady….all this talk about the hits he takes is pure BS.

Branch did play against Carolina, all of 12 defensive snaps, and was a healthy scratch against TB. The coaching staff is trying to send him is annual wake up call.

    I am sure age is a factor, but he’s performing well for a QB at any age based on yards, TDs and INTs, and it isn’t the first time he’s been injured and played through it.

    As far as the more frequent sacks, I think it’s really more about waiting for routes to open up then anything else. He’s had to stand in there and take hits where the ball would be long gone last year.

    Like ATL did in the Super Bowl, teams are trying to make him throw outside as much as possible.

    Brady does make me say ‘wow did he do that’ often enogh. His ball placement is unreal. Also the way he reads defenses then foxes them before throwing has to be appreviated. And he does it so smoothly and matter of factly it does look easy. Sometimes you see him hit an open reciever with a perfectly placed throw, but also if you understand what just went on there you caught on that Brady got the dback to move the wrong way to create that opening. All kinds of stuff that not everyone understands. But the wins and the points on the board get it.

    Brady and Belichick have been together too long to really separate them. However, Belichick didn’t win anything before Brady came along. Including 2000 with the Patriots and the first two games of 2001 with a 1st overall draft pick QB that had been to a Super Bowl.

    Then Brady came along and voila, Belichick suddenly can win any game.

    Sure, there’s the Cassel argument that people like so much, but Brady won 5 more games in 2007 with that same team and Belichick didn’t make the playoffs.

    Then there’s the argument that Garoppolo and Brissett took the team to 3-1 last year (which was awesome). Garoppolo looked good, but Arizona, who turned out to be pretty bad with 7 wins had to miss a kick to lose that game, then Jimmy played great against the Dolphins, but couldn’t stay on the field after 1.5 games. Then Brissett and the Defense played well against Texans, but the Bills game was a disaster. I don’t think some combination of those two guys would have ended up winning the Super Bowl, although their contributions were fantastic.

    So I am firmly in the camp that Brady is the main reason for the Patriots success.

    I will acknowledge that I think Belichick is a better coach than McCarthy, but I don’t think McCarthy is bad by any means. He’s not the only reason Rodgers loses so many road games in comparison to home games.

  58. I hate that max kellerman can continue with his stupid “TOM BRADY WILL FALL OFF A CLIFF!” argument, even though it’s just a stupid way of saying Brady will suddenly not be good anymore.

    I can never understand when people say Brady isn’t tough. He’s as tough as they come.

    It has nothing to do with his toughness. It’s his whining to the ref after any kind of contact.

    tytroll6 says ‘The depth is without question there’ then goes on about how they would have beaten KC and Carolina if so and so was there. News flash, the purpose of depth is to make up for who isn’t there.

    false

    it is the dropoff quality that matters

    in 2013, ne lost wilfork, mayo and tommy kelly all at once

    umm, this means the dropoff from those players to what you have behind
    it is nowhere near the same level of what those players are

    are you honestly this stupid?

    branch and hightower were arguably the best players in the conference
    last year at those positions

    get it?

    you don’t have all pro leve players sitting on the bench

    nice reading comprehension

  61. Rest him this week if necessary. Patriots play the Jets and they will try hard to keep their winning streak but they lack the talent and class of New England. Maybe a good game to give Jimmy Garoppolo a start. Tom is tough but sometimes it can be prudent to protect the GOAT. Another Super Bowl ring is still there for the taking.

    Are you referring to gamesmanship? All QBs do that. Stupid not to.

  63. Bills Jets Dolphins have been PATHETIC for the last 10 years…maybe 20 years..
    It is ALL their fault…those teams are TOTAL LOSER FRANCHISES.

    But the PATHETIC level of competition that the Patsies have had for Brady’s ENTIRE career is the reason that fraudulent franchise has the number of SB wins (Tainted) that they have.

    The end is coming for him and Belicheat. Too much arrogance
    ———————————————————————————–
    Translation: They’ve been beating your team like a drum for nearly 20 years and your only hope is that they might retire at some point.

  65. Belichick didn’t win anything before Brady came along

    Cleveland ’94. Look it up. Best season the Browns have had since then.

  66. After all these years of the NFL protecting Brady, by letting the Patriots get away with holding on their offensive line, he finally get’s hit a couple times, and now he is injured, i knew he wouldn’t be able to take a hit, he never would have survived the 1970’s!

  67. Brady has absorbed more punishment than any previous QB not just because he is physically the toughest. He just has more desire to win, He’s the GOAT because he’s just made different.

    Fully aware of Cleveland in 1994. Belichick was showing promise but he was hated by the owner and he had one “ok” season.

    Nothing to write home about. Then he was fired.

    Max Kellerman is predicting a broken clock will inevitably be right twice a day. He just doesn’t know when like the rest of us.

    Let’s talk about division strength with Bill

    200-71 with the Pats through regular season 2016

    In division 74-27 wp.732

    Out of division 126-44 wp .741

    I have not gone back and adjusted to the prior alignment but do not believe there is a significant impact

    Can we put to rest the myth of the AFCE being the reason for the continued excellence and just acknowledge they have sustained it against any competition?

    Unless they are a Broncos fan 🙂 Only team with a winning record against Brady. First team to beat Brady in the playoffs and the last team to beat the patriots in the playoffs.

    =====================
    Miami 7 playoff appearances in last 20 years. Jets 7 as well with 2 AFC Title game appearances. Brady has a better win percentage outside his division than against the afc east. Troll

    Depth as in adequate quality players behind the starters and not just lukewarm bodies, as in the famous ‘next man up’ you Pats fans are so fond of touting and chide others for not having. When you try to seriously pass off Alan (Oft MIA Healthy Scratch) Branch as an absent difference maker and one of the best at his position when Belichick sat him for the Bucs game you are in no position to call anyone else stupid. Your arguments are not only circular but presented in Millennial staccato style fragments. Could you at least try presenting them like an adult?
