Earlier today it was reported that Tom Brady missed Patriots practice. Most assumed it was just a day of rest because of the beating he took against Tampa.
It now appears that Brady missed practice today because of injury, according to NFL’s Ian Rapoport, Brady sprained his AC joint in his non throwing shoulder.
#Patriots QB Tom Brady suffered what is thought to be an AC joint sprain in his left, non-throwing shoulder, source said. He said he’ll play

The fact that it’s his non throwing shoulder is good news, and Brady indicates that he won’t miss any time because of it, but this is exactly why the offensive line needs to tighten up because brady is going to get killed. You can eat all the avocado ice cream you want, if you get put on your back a dozen times, you’re bound to get hurt, it’s just a matter of time. This isn’t Jay Cutler they’re protecting, it’s not some guy that doesn’t give a crap about winning. We’re talking about the greatest quarterback to ever walk the planet, so freaking protect him like he is the greatest QB to walk the planet. It’s not that hard.
The Patriots will face a very hungry Jets team this week that have really already over achieved. So they have nothing to lose but try to demolish Brady. Hopefully Scarnecchia can get the line to protect Brady.
