Tom Brady not concerned about shoulder, vows to be ready Sunday

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady throws a pass as he is pressured by Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive end Noah Spence during the second half of an NFL football game Thursday Oct. 5 2017 in Tampa Fla

To the sure disappointment of Jets fans, Tom Brady is expected to play when the New England Patriots visit East Rutherford Sunday, according to multiple reports.

Fantasy Impact Brady initially suffered the ailment in a Week 4 loss to the Panthers and then aggravated it in Thursday's 19-14 win over Tampa Bay. During a time when nearly all quarterback's bodies break down (late 30s, early 40s), Brady has not missed a game he has been eligible to play in since that 2008 season.

Brady addressed the media Wednesday after missing a team practice on Tuesday for the first time this season.

The good news for the Patriots is that Brady's injury is not serious and is to his non-throwing shoulder.


Brady has been the sixth most sacked quarterback in the National Football League this season, going down 16 times through five games. Brady is being sacked 3.2 times per game, the most in his career.

By comparison, in 16 regular season games last season, Patriots quarterbacks took just 24 sacks and were hit 73 times.

Asked about playing through pain, Brady said, "I think everybody does". He was sacked 41 times in 2001 - the most he's ever been sacked over the course of a full season. Against the Panthers, he was sacked three times and hit seven times.
