Tom Brady Misses Practice Due To Shoulder Injury

Patriots QB Tom Brady expected to play vs. Jets

The injury is not expected to sideline Brady for Sunday's tilt against their division rival. Then, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport broke the news that Brady had suffered an AC joint sprain in his non-throwing shoulder during the team's Week 5 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

"I'm good. I'm not anxious about", Brady said Wednesday at his press conference.

Brady said he'll be able to play through the pain and isn't concerned about heading into Sunday's game with the 3-2 Jets.

"I think everybody does", he said.

Sunday will be a big game for the Pats and the Jets, as both teams are tied atop the AFC East, along with the Bills.

Brady was asked whether there was some concern when he underwent an MRI.

Through the first five games of the season, Brady has been hit repeatedly.

Brady has been under pressure so far this season, taking 16 sacks - one more than he took in all of 2016.

Brady's 1,702 passing yards ranks first in the National Football League and his 11 touchdowns are tied for second behind Green Bay's Aaron Rodgers (13) and Houston's Deshaun Watson (12). It's only Tuesday and giving a 40-year-old quarterback a day off doesn't seem like the worst idea.
