Tom Brady said on Thursday that he’ll be fine for this week’s game, despite being listed with right shoulder and right finger injuries on the practice report.

Now that’s been confirmed by the team, as Brady was a full participant on both Thursday and Friday and has no injury status for Sunday.

Receivers Chris Godwin (knee) and Russell Gage (hamstring) are also expected to play, despite being limited all week in practice. Left tackle Donovan Smith (elbow) doesn’t have an injury status either, though he was limited all week.

Receivers Julio Jones (knee) and Breshad Perriman (knee/hamstring) are questionable for the game. Jones was on the field for 28 percent of Tampa Bay’s offensive snaps last week in the loss to Kansas City — his first action since Week One. He may or may not be available to play against his old team for the first time.

Jones has four catches for 76 yards so far this season.

Head coach Todd Bowles previously announced that tight end Cameron Rate (concussion), defensive tackle Akiem Hicks (foot), and safety Logan Ryan (foot) and all out for Sunday.

  1. Brady has a bruised ego,… his woman filed on him.
    I don’t wish that on anyone. Especially with young kids involved.

  2. No fan of the game likes to see great players and teams in a decline. At this point last season, I was really enjoying what Tom Brady and his Tampa Bay teammates were doing. Yet, Brady has made the cardinal mistake of telling his wife of 13 years one thing with plans to move on from the game; and then to renege on the promise. We saw this in 2010 with Brett Favre, though a bit different in what went on.

    With that in mind, Tom Brady’s issues are a reflection of issues the NFL is facing. Now, I do not know how those issues league wide will be fixed. For Brady, while admittedly it is admirable to see him play in Week 5; we know the Buccaneers are likely to lose. I do not think this team makes the playoffs the way things are now. And these minor injuries are compounded by the fact that emotionally Tom Brady is drained and not with it. This adds up over the days to come. Becoming Florida Man has proven to be an odd career and life midlife crisis.

    Here is what I would advise Tom Brady to do. Retire as soon as you can. Be with your children. Work on your emotional and mental health for the post retirement life. And attempt to make amends with the New England Patriots. The game has passed you by. Yet you have made your mark.


  3. No fan of the game likes to see great players and teams in a decline.

    Why do fans care so much about this? They have no right.

    Players should live their dream as long as they can. Especially considering how much they give up for it. Brady being the prime example. He sacrificed everything for his career. Literally, everything. Now you suggest that he up and quit?
