Tom Brady isn’t concerned about his shoulder

Tom Brady has an injury to his left shoulder. It doesn’t seem that it will cause him to miss Sunday’s game against the Jets.

“I’m good,” he told reporters on Wednesday. “I’m not worried about it.”

He said he also wasn’t worried about getting an MRI, and he made it clear no one should be concerned about the possibility of him not playing this week.

“I’ll be there Sunday,” Brady said. “Don’t worry about that. I’ll be there.”

It doesn’t change the fact that he has an injury that apparently is causing him pain through which he’ll have to play.

“I think everybody [plays through pain],” he said. “I mean, there’s a lot of bumps and bruises over the course of a year. So I’m not concerned. . . . You know, it’s a physical sport, so I think everyone is dealing with something. It’s just part of the sport. Everyone’s running around and they’re big and they’re fast and they hit hard. You have bumps and bruises, but you just deal with them the best you can and try to get ready for the next week.”

It’s easier to do that if the quarterback minimizes, or maybe completely avoids, getting hit. As Brady gets older, it’s even more important that he find a way to skitter away from men who are nearly young enough to be his sons.

  1. I’m not particularly worried about THIS injury, but the o line is the Patriots biggest weakness right now and the way things are going the injuries will mount and yeah, he’s 40 and isn’t gonna snap back from minor stuff as quickly.

    Having said that the o line and defense tend to get better throughout the season, but this time they’re starting from much worse than usual. They need to step up or we will be seeing Jimmy sooner than anyone would like.

    Every QB with an injured shoulder “isn’t worried about it” – Until they get hit. – Mike Tyson
    ——————————
    Brady has often had shoulder injuries, at various times either playing through a right or left shoulder injury. He played all the 2011 postseason and SB with a separated left shoulder! It makes me laugh when fools claim he isn’t tough and/or can’t throw – he’s leading the league in passing despite all those hits and recently without his two top receivers.

  3. Neither are Pats fans. The trolls on the other hand are just giddy. The slightest injury to one of the greatest players ever to take the field just fills them with childish joy, it’s all they really have.

  4. Brady has been on the Injury Report 186 times in his career including 116 times for his THROWING shoulder.

    Speculation that age is catching up to him is just plain ridiculous.

    The terrible o-line is catching up with him. The rest of us mere mortals would be befuddled clouds of pink mist if we had taken even one of the hits he’s been through. Of course he’s banged up a bit.

  5. Has nothing to do with age or ability to avoid. It is a fact he is holding the ball longer this year (missing Edelman). The o line (same as last year) is having trouble protecting him (not to mention Solder doesn’t look right).

  6. Amazing! Brady will be on the injury report for… Lemme guess…

    An “upper body extremity ailment” or some cryptic malady that the Hoodie thinks he’s so clever about…

  7. I have had an ac separation. One hit to the underside of the arm pushing the shoulder upwards and you suck all the air in the world into your lungs and cannot breathe it out. LOL

  8. “Washed up.”

    So you think the guy who is leading the league in passing, behind what has been a bad Oline this year, is finished?

    Really?

    All I can do is laugh at people who make comments like that. SMH

    Eli Manning is tougher than Fraud Brady.

    ————————————————————-

    Well, considering there history of longevity- it should be obvious that they are both tough.

    Considering Eli’s recent memorabilia issues, you might avoid the word “fraud” and Eli out any future posts!

  10. Brady – The only QB to have multiple SB wins, and not one of them over 4 points…most were 3 point wins. GOATS win BIG! Soft wins are just that.

  11. Toughest and most courageous player in the NFL (in addition to being the GOAT). Irrespective of whatever team you root for, you have to admire Tom Brady’s love of the game. I thought the smart thing would be to play Jimmy Garoppolo and let Tommy recover, but the champion ignores the pain – he’ll tough it out and play, as you expect from a true Patriot.
    Great role model for all aspiring young footballers.

  12. Year in year out has absorbed more punishment than any other QB and still throws the best long ball; just keeps his mouth shut and guts out championships.

    Eli has to play Denver by himself this week so let’s hope he’s tough.

    Matt Cassel would win 11 games behind that O-Line.

    ———

    If that were true then Brady would win all 16. Oh wait, that’s what actually happened.

    Yeah, but you aren’t an NFL player that has been in the league for 18 years.

    Yet with Mike Tomlin at the helm the Steelers and their fans know that they can provide no serious competition against a BB coached team

    Tom “Terrific” Brady.

    Guy is tougher than a coffin nail!

    Generally to his opponents he does turn out to be a coffin nail.

    I don’t remember tough QBs asking for flags everytime he’s hit.

    ———————
    Smart ones always do. Its called gamesmanship. If you can get a flag you gave gained something its that simple. Keep in mind the object is to win the games and not to worry what haters might use to make hay about.

    I suppose the less competative QBs might let the hits slide and not bother trying to work the refs, but being less competative should never be considered commendable in the NFL.

    They do. All NFL players get tested. The fact that his name never came up, especially after this many years, is your answer right there. (Water and avocados).
