Report: Tom Brady has sprained shoulder

Tom Brady’s shoulder has been the most mysterious body part in the NFL for the past three days, and it seems clear that somehow something is wrong with it. After all, he missed Wednesday’s practice for “non-injury” shoulder X-rays and appeared to be favoring it as he threw to receivers Thursday.

He was listed as probable on Friday’s injury report, but NFL.com’s Albert Breer has bad news. Breer’s sources tell him that Brady has a sprained left shoulder, and though it is not an “instability problem” and it shouldn’t keep him from playing, Brady’s presence on Sunday will be guided by how well he can handle the pain.

"If they're not out there, there is either another player ahead of him or we're not confident they can go out there [healthy]," Bill Belichick, the question-dodger, said today when asked about Brady's status. "It's as simple as that."

The Patriots, when they face the Bills, still have something to play for Sunday. A win or tie would wrap up a No. 1 seed in the playoffs, meaning they’d have home-field advantage all the way until the Super Bowl. Whether backup Brian Hoyer could beat Buffalo in order to seal that scenario, that’s the question Belichick probably will have to weigh between now and kickoff.

Hey Dr Moron have you ever sererated your shoulder - regardless which one?

Yeah I don't think so.  So many tough guys out there that can deal with other peoples pain - lol - so funny.

Of course Brady will be out there and he hasn't complained, neither has Roth from Pitt.

I would love to see the phony's on these postings have one of these injuries - you will be cryng like a baby - similar to all Jets fans this weekend!  :)

Is this the same shoulder that's been on the injury report for about 6 years running? Who cares? What's he need his left shoulder for anyway, he throws with his right arm.

I've always thought it was ridiculous that QB's don't play when they're opposite shoulder is hurt. Take something for the pain and get out there.
