He was present for the portion of practice that was open to reporters, leading some to believe he practiced.

Officially, Tom Brady didn’t practice.

The Wednesday injury report lists Brady as not practicing, due to a left shoulder injury that reportedly happened against the Panthers and was aggravated against the Buccaneers.

Also missing practice on Wednesday were tight end Rob Gronkowski (thigh) and cornerback Eric Rowe (groin). Limited in practice were running back Rex Burkhead (ribs), tackle Marcus Cannon (ankle), cornerback Stephon Gilmore (ankle), linebacker Dont'a Hightower (knee), linebacker Elandon Roberts (ankle), and receiver Matt Slater (hamstring).

Brady said separately on Wednesday that he’s not concerned about the injury, and that he’ll play on Sunday against the Jets.

  1. He’s often missed Wednesday, he was rested through Wednesday AND Thursday just last Nov. The year before that he was ill through Friday, still played.

    He’s played through many a similar (and worse) shoulder problem – even up to and in a Super Bowl.

    And you might say “oh but this is different because he’s 40 now, father time etc” – yeah but you’re overlooking that he’s also this season’s leading passer (despite missing his two top receivers).

  2. He’ll drop 30 against a crappy Jets D that was outproduced and outplayed last week vs the Browns who had to garbage QBs playing.

    Has Leonard Williams made a significant play yet? He’s only in his 3rd season.

    lol

    Tommy (2 yard tom) Brady history in NY vs the jets since 2013

    2013 – 30 – 27 OT LOSS
    2014 – 17- 16 WIN
    2015 – 26 -20 OT LOSS (lol at matt slater field position)
    2016 – 22 – 17 WIN

    History shows that it will be a tight game and the jets will likely make it close at hit brady again

    The 40 year old is close to being cooked!

  4. He’s simply resting.

    It’s better for the Patriots to have Garoppolo get reps with the first team, especially considering the way the o-line is playing this season; you just never know when Brady is going to take the hit that legitimately puts him on the injury report.

    It’s likely that the Jets get beaten handily, but for the most part, these teams play each other hard and make their matchups exciting. I’m really looking forward to this game, especially if the Jets defense can make it interesting and get to Brady. I know the stadium is gonna be so loud!

    Brady and the Pats are lying again. Shocking.

    Sounds like you’re whining over something almost every team does, but it’s the Patriots so it’s always wrong. Shocking

  6. Before the season started I would have expected to see Garappolo at the helm before the half ended, but with the way the Jets are playing and the way that Patriots’ defense is struggling I expect this to be a close game.
