During a time when nearly all quarterback's bodies break down (late 30s, early 40s), Brady has not missed a game he has been eligible to play in since that 2008 season. Last season, when he was No. 4 on depth chart, the closest he came to that total was when he played 42 snaps against the 49ers on November 20.
Brady reportedly suffered the sprain when sacked by Carolina's Julius Peppers two games ago, and the injury was aggravated during last Thursday's game at Tampa Bay.More news: Digging Up the Facts on Gilead Sciences, Inc. (GILD)
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. And according to Rapoport, Brady says he'll play against the Jets on Sunday. Even then I would expect him to finish the game.
He first dinged it during the October 1 game against Carolina, one of the many hits he endured in that game. Since Week 1 against the Kansas City Chiefs, Brady has totaled at least 300 passing yards in each game. He said he has learned to deal with the wear-and-tear over time. "I'll be there next Sunday". 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.More news: Rose McGowan Claims Harvey Weinstein Raped Her, According to New Tweets
Brady beating the Jets would be nothing new, as the four-time Super Bowl MVP has 23 career regular-season wins against his AFC East rival. "Since I've been here, that's something that we've prided ourselves on as a defense, is stopping the run", Williams said. "We've been in some competitive games, and we're going keep fighting".
After the hit in Tampa, Brady stayed down for a bit, wincing in pain. The Patriots have not played well of late. They can't sack you if you're handing the ball off.More news: Mother who ignored deal to vaccinate son loses primary custody
