Patriots QB Tom Brady expected to play vs. Jets

TAMPA FL- OCTOBER 05 New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady runs off the field after an NFL football game between the New England Patriots and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers

NFL Network followed up on the Herald's report, calling the injury an "AC joint sprain".

By video review, the second time Panthers defensive end Julius Peppers sacked Brady on October 1 could have caused a mild AC sprain on the left side. Brady has never been sacked on more than 6% of his dropbacks in any season, and he's only been sacked on 4.9% of his dropbacks over his 18-year National Football League career.

"I'll be there Sunday", he said of Sunday's game in New Jersey against the New York Jets (1 p.m.; CBS). "I'm not concerned", he said.

Brady, who has been sacked 16 times this season, is expected to practice the rest of the week and play against the Jets this Sunday.

For the Jets, running back Bilal Powell (calf) and defensive end Muhammad Wilkerson (shoulder, toe) sat out practice.

The squeaky clean Brady image took a hit in 2015, as the infamous, some would say petty, deflategate scandal dominated National Football League headlines for over a year. He said he has learned to deal with the wear-and-tear over time. In comparison, the best quarterbacks of Brady's generation, Drew Brees, Brett Favre, Peyton Manning, Aaron Rodgers, Ben Roethlisberger and Kurt Warner, just to name a few, have combined for six Super Bowls since Brady's first start in 2001.

"We're definitely not happy about it". "But it's something that we're going to have to keep challenging ourselves".

At the same time, the Patriots have focused their offense on more vertical passing plays this year.

One reporter offered a theory that Brady could be being hit more because he thinks he is more mobile at age 40 than he was earlier in his career. Their 3.9 yards per attempt rank 22nd in the league. "We have to make them one dimensional and make them pass". They can't sack you if you're handing the ball off.
