That sound you hear is greater New England exhaling as one.
According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, Patriots quarterback Tom Brady underwent an MRI on his sore right ankle, but it revealed no fractures, just a sprain, and he’s expected to be ready for the playoffs.
That’s good news for a guy who was hobbling noticeably after yesterday’s loss to the Dolphins, during which he took a low shot from Dolphins defensive Ndamukong Suh.
By securing the No. 2 seed in the AFC playoffs, Brady has time to recover before they play in the early game on Jan. 16.
