When the news broke that New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady had missed practice on Tuesday, obvious concern began to spread about his status for the game this coming Sunday. Then, NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport broke the news that Brady had suffered an AC joint sprain in his non-throwing shoulder during the team’s Week 5 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Fortunately, Rapoport also stated that Brady would not miss Week 6 against the New York Jets. Now, as Phil Perry of NBC Sports Boston reported, the Patriots got some good news, as Brady was out on the practice field Wednesday.
Brady, who’s 40 years old, certainly hasn’t lost a step, and it’d be surprising if the injury to his non-throwing shoulder results in any on-field struggles. To this point in the 2017 season, Brady has completed 68.2 percent of his passes for 1,702 yards, 11 touchdowns and just one interception. His quarterback rating of 112 is the third-highest of his career.
It seems like a near certainty that Brady will be completely ready for the team’s Week 6 matchup against the 3-2 Jets.
