Patriots quarterback Tom Brady had an MRI on his left shoulder this week and was diagnosed with an AC Joint sprain, according to NBC Sports Boston's Mike Giardi. According to Michael Giardi of NBC Sports Boston, Brady re-aggravated a shoulder injury that he originally hurt against the Panthers on October 1.
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.
Brady says he'll be on the field Sunday to play the New York Jets in a fight for first place in the AFC East.
Brady sat out Tuesday's practice, giving his injured left shoulder a fifth day of rest after last Thursday's win over Tampa Bay.
Brady addressed the media Wednesday after missing a team practice on Tuesday for the first time this season.
Brady was hit 19 times and sacked nine times in three playoff games. He's already been sacked 16 times after a 15-sack season in 2016.
The 40-year-old Brady leads the National Football League with 1,702 passing yards.
It seems like a near certainty that Brady will be completely ready for the team's Week 6 matchup against the 3-2 Jets.
