New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady admits he’s a bit sore but expects to be fine after taking a low hit from safety Kam Chancellor in Sunday night’s 31-24 loss to the Seattle Seahawks.
Chancellor contacted Brady at the knees after losing his balance and falling while trying to turn the corner around right tackle Marcus Cannon. Brady never left the game but was attended to on the sidelines.
“I’m sore,” Brady said during his weekly interview on Westwood One’s Monday Night Football broadcast. “But I’ll be ready to go next week. Just some good treatment like I always get from my buddy Alex [Guerrero], and I’ll be good to go. It’s part of football. Everyone is playing with bumps and bruises this time of year. I’m no different. So I’ll get my treatment this week, get out there and practice, and be ready to go.”
Brady said the injury wasn’t his knee and Jim Gray referred to it in the interview as a quadriceps issue.
Brady finished the game with 316 yards passing with zero touchdowns and an interception against Seattle. It was the first time since a 17-9 loss to Buffalo in Dec. 2014 that Brady failed to throw a touchdown pass at home.
