Tom Brady, Rob Gronkowski limited in Thursday’s practice

AP

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was spotted on the field at the start of Wednesday’s practice, but he wound up being listed as a non-participant when the team released its injury report later in the day.

Brady was spotted on the field at the start of Thursday’s practice as well and he wound up doing more once the session was closed to the media. Brady was listed as a limited participant in the practice as he deals with an injury to his left shoulder.

Brady said Wednesday that he’ll play against the Jets this weekend. Thursday’s practice work suggests that will be the case.

Tight end Rob Gronkowski also got in a limited practice on Thursday. He joined Brady as a non-participant on Wednesday, although there’s more reason to fear he won’t play as he sat out their Week Five win with a thigh injury.

Cornerback Eric Rowe also missed that game and was the only Patriots player out of practice on Thursday. Left tackle Nate Solder, who didn’t work on Wednesday for reasons unrelated to injury, was back on the field.

  1. They aren’t really hurt, it’s just the fourth cheating scandal to engulf the Patriots. They’re sandbagging injuries so that their poor play will have a simple explanation. Mark my words.

  2. The simple truth is that Tom Brady is so smart and talented a player that he really doesn’t need to practice. Bill Belichick knows when rest is required to get the win on Sunday. Tom and Gronk are elite and can fire up when required.

    LOL

    One of the most durable QBs ever to play is somehow named “glass”?

    What nickname would you give Joe Montana? “Glassiest”?

    ugh

  5. If Jimmy G didn’t get injured in that Miami game he would still be the starter today. Brady knows this so he will play injured just so to not lose his job.

  6. Brady will play, but the fact that he has a legitimate injury the Patriots are willing disclose makes me wonder how long he’ll stay in if the Jets are consistently getting to him. At what point do you pull him if you’re winning, or put in Garoppolo to rest Brady and save your season. There’s no denying that the Patriots are winning BECAUSE of Brady.

  7. The pats ship is sinking. A 40 year OLD QB who can’t throw deep, a piece of glass TE makes for a bad combo. Not to mention the terrible defense! Sad! At least the coach knows how to cheat though.

    Yet, somehow, unbelievably, the 40 year OLD QB who can’t throw deep leads the league in number of 40 yard plays. It’s the damnedest thing…

  9. 5 SB’s, one won with the assistance of a ghost non existent “tuck” play. One assisted win after cheating. The majority of them 3 point wins. Not one win over 4 points. Greatness wins are overwhelming not barely getting a win.

    And yet the Lombardi’s are roughly the same size . . . even when you only win by 3.

  11. Not one win over 4 points? Since the amazing last Super Bowl win was a TD (6 points) in a tie game, that statement isn’t true. Though since this poster still doesn’t understand 7th grade science, I can see why they think 6 isn’t greater than 4!

    Preach brother! What difference does it make that the tuck rule was applied correctly and the resulting FG only tied that game? Or Brady b slapped the legion of bust in the mouth to the tune of what was at the time the biggest 4th quarter comeback in SB history until he topped it in SB LI? Or that the OT win against the Falcons was by 6? Or that blowout wins against over matched teams are meaningless compared to beating a quality opponent? It’s PFT. We can post whatever nonsense we like and as long as we are bashing the Patriots we have a much better chance at our posts getting through than their fans do. I KNOW the Patriots can’t be legit because they own the Dolphins division.
