Tom Brady downplays wrapped elbow

Tom Curran/NBC Sports Boston

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady has had an elbow injury for the past couple of weeks. After Sunday’s loss to the Chiefs, a reporter noticed that it was wrapped.

“I just got hit right on my elbow,” Brady said. “It’s fine. It’ll probably be on the injury report, but I’ll be there next Sunday.”

Brady had both elbow and toe injuries entering Sunday’s game. He has been limited in practice, which makes it hard to be as prepared as possible to play.

Brady took 12 hits last Sunday night against the Texans, and six more on Sunday against the Chiefs. The more he gets hit, the more likely he gets hurt. And while he keeps finding a way to fight through injuries, at some point it could become too much for Brady, at age 42, to continue.

  1. He’s making no excuses. He was asked about it by a reporter, so he responded–but he chuckled when he said it would probably be on the injury report.

    What’s up with all these gloom-and-doom prognostications about Brady and his age. You know Drew Brees is just a little bit younger, right?

  2. Brady reminds me a lot of Peyton the last year. Wins with football smarts because the body is no longer willing. I hope he retires before the body completely fails.

  3. All these people saying Brady is losing it must not be watching the games. He’s not having any physical problems. The o-line is horrendous, the run game is sketchy at best and Brady has no reliable receivers other than Edelman, who is now pretty much constantly double teamed. So while the offense is not performing at all well, it’s not because of Brady and certainly not because he’s 42. He can still sling it, which was not the case for Manning, due to his injury history.

    The simple fact is that no QB of any age would have a lot of success in Brady’s situation. And anybody hit as much as Brady’s being hit these days would risk injury, whether he’s 22, 32 or 42.

  4. I’ll still take Tom Brady with the game on the line in the playoffs over any other quarterback in football… Period… And I’ll put the 6 Rings to whatever comment you wanna make otherwise all day everyday and twice on Sunday

  5. Brady can barely throw the ball beyond the sticks, but it is the o-line’s fault. Sure. I guess it is hard to tell the difference because he has always dinked and dunked

  6. 6 rings, 20 years of consistent performance, numerous NFL records. Reading the comments it’s obvious there are a ton of people that don’t watch football, respect football, or recognize the rare opportunity to witness great things in the sport. It’s a shame what the common “fan” has become.

    You must not have been around in the late 90s when the Cowboys fell from grace lol

  8. Please,please make the Patriots play a FULL set of games in the playoffs…I’m soooooo tired of them getting a week off and home field advantage. KC , Baltimore eliminate these chumps once and for all.

  9. I couldn’t be more proud of the Patriots. Came back and should have had the chance to tie with a FG, even after they stole the fumble return and a clear TD. It ain’t over yet.

    Clearly you didn’t watch this game, or any other Pats game this year. There is ZERO evidence of Brady deteriorating physically.

    It’s a shame what the average American has become. No respect for anyone or anything. That’s what happens when you let TV and cell phones, and internet “likes” raise your kids. Don’t blame the kids. Blame the parents that chose to have them and not be responsible for their upbringing.

    6 titles each on the biggest stage in their respective sport. Add Jordan to that list too.
