Tom Brady ‘not worried’ about shoulder injury; will play in Week 6
The New England Patriots were able to win a close game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 5. Jameis Winston and company had the defending Super Bowl champions on the ropes, but New England was able to push through and get the victory.
Unfortunately, the win may have come at a cost. Superstar quarterback Tom Brady is dealing with a shoulder injury, according to NFL.com.
NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Tuesday that Brady suffered an AC joint sprain in his non-throwing shoulder during a win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Thursday.
Although is dealing with an injury, the five-time Super Bowl champion won’t be missing any time. Brady insists he’s not concerned about his shoulder and will be ready for Week 6’s divisional showdown with the New York Jets, via NFL.com.
“I’m good. Not worried about it.” Brady told reporters Wednesday. “I’ll be there Sunday.”
Brady and company will go on the road in Week 6 facing off against the Jets at MetLife Stadium. Three teams including the Patriots are sitting with 3-2 records heading into this weekend with the Jets being one of those teams. The Buffalo Bills are also sporting a record of 3-2.
Despite the fact that no one will write off the Patriots, New England clearly isn’t the same dominant team of old. Bill Belichick’s has had to fight tooth and nail every week, and this upcoming matchup may be no different with potential playoff implications.
