Patriots QB Tom Brady expected to play vs. Jets

New England Patriots

On Wednesday, Brady called him "uncoverable". "I'm not anxious about it". There's a lot of bumps and bruises over the course a year. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported that Brady suffered what is believed to be an AC joint sprain.

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

The Patriots have opened the season with five consecutive non-divisional games, with their season oddly stacked to feature divisional games in five of the last six games of the year. But he has clearly missed wide receiver Julian Edelman, who is out for the season after injuring his knee in a preseason game. Another reason for that could be due to poor offensive line play, as left tackle Nate Solder has struggled at times this year. Brady has played through similar injuries in the past. That came in 2008 when he tore his ACL in the season opener. You know, we've got to do a good job of that at the quarterback position.

"I love that group up front", he continued.

The 40-year-old Brady leads the National Football League with 1,702 passing yards.

After the hit in Tampa, Brady stayed down for a bit, wincing in pain.

When Jets fans aren't sitting home watching their division rival play for a championship in the winter, they are watching them blow late leads to the crosstown Giants in the Super Bowl. "Since I've been here, that's something that we've prided ourselves on as a defense, is stopping the run", Williams said.

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.

Despite the Jets being a decent team against fantasy quarterbacks so far, Brady has continued to show that is as close to matchup proof as you can get.
