Tom Brady limited again in practice with calf injury

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was limited in practice for a second straight day to a calf injury, per the team’s injury report.

But despite Brady’s inability to take a full load of snaps in practice the first days of the work week, there’s little reason to think he will be sidelined for Sunday’s game against the New York Jets.

Brady took every snap in last week’s blowout victory over the Miami Dolphins. Additionally, if Brady was going to be unavailable and Jarrett Stidham needed to play against the Jets, the team would need to have a backup quarterback at the ready should a reserve be needed. But Brady and Stidham remain the only quarterbacks on the team’s roster.

Brady hasn’t missed a game due to injury since the 2008 season when a torn ACL in the season opener brought an abrupt end to his season. It seems unlikely that streak will be in danger this week even with the limited practice reps.

    Edelman’s the 3rd one, he can easily do some running QB thing while they shop for someone

  2. The only thing I can criticize Belichick for is not giving the backup QB some reps.

    1. It reduces the risk to Brady

    2. it helps the backup develop

    3. in case the backup has to play he will have a little experience

    4. if the backup does ok you can trade him after 3 years

  3. blandcommentsgetposted says: Brady injury reports have been going on for what…20 years?
    terripet says: Fake injury

    Brady not on injury report – Pats are lying, they’re always hiding something!
    Brady put on injury report1 – Pats are lying, nothing wrong with him, they always do this!
    Brady put on injury report2 – Pats are lying, it’s much worse, he’s falling apart – it’s over!
