Just tweeted by Adam Schefter was on the ground holding his knee after a throw... lets see how this turns out.

He tweaked his knee, went to the sideline, was checked by the trainers and then went out for 3 more reps (all of them completions.) Then left practice with a trainer.

Hopefully it is just precautionary. One would think that if it was an ACL tearhe wouldn't have been allowed to return.

Brady is fine. He'll miss a practice or two at most. ESPN is blowing this way out of proportion.

That would SUCK for the Patriots if he went down and missed significant time.

Glad he'll be fine.

Video. It's hard to tell how serious it was, but you can see how it happened and we've all seen this before. It could be nothing or it could be massive. :ugh:

Keep in mind that while he sat out the following play, he returned for 3 more reps, all of which were completions. Apparently he looked fine. He then consulted with Belichick, McDaniels, and trainers, and walked off on his own.

I wouldn't dismiss this as nothing until tomorrow when we hear official word from the Pats.

I have never torn anything in my knee, but isn't it somewhat common for, if it is torn clean, there to be little pain? I've seen lots of my friends walking around with torn ACLs. Based on my very limited knowledge of ligament tears it seems plausible to me that he could have torn something, felt little pain after wards, came back, still felt weird, went to get it checked out.

Unlikely but don't rule it out, he could be seriously hurt.

For an ACL injury you can walk on it on that same day.

Happens all the time.

Hell, Rondo hurt his and played through it in the same game.

I doubt it's anything serious however.

I'm pretty sure Elway played his entire career without an ACL.

Some people simply have a tear in the ACL and not a torn one. Derrick Rose tore his ACL and Rondo only had a tear in the ACL and was still playing on it.

Tom looked like he was still able to move his legs. I think he'll be fine for now.

@AdamSchefter: MRI on Patriots QB Tom Brady's knee was negative and he now is considered day to day, per ESPN source with knowledge of injury

Ian Rapoport ‏@RapSheet 2m

For #Patriots QB Tom Brady and his not-serious knee injury: I'm told it's a sprain. More tests tonight.

I will be honest, can't stand Brady. But I hope this isn't too major as he really is pretty special to watch. Kind of how I used to feel about our boy Manning killing us all the time. Now love the man! Everyone keeps saying he came back for 3 more plays, maybe its not serious or maybe a serious setback. I'm hoping more of a major setback for that team, not the player. But let's not forget RG3 last year. We all knew the man couldn't run in the playoffs, but did all he could. So those three plays after this doesn't mean anything right now.

Schefter and Rapoport already confirmed it was not serious. It was just a sprain.

He's practicing with a brace and playing tonight. Nothing major obviously. Good news for the Pats

Bad news for the rest of us......The year he was gone was the best year of football in ages...But I guess I'm glad for him it's not major....

He's sure looking fine tonight! Geez, doesn't matter who he throws to, he just gets the job done.

Brady and the receiving corps look good tonight. I'm not worried about our O at all this season. In fact, it looks superior to our O at the same stage last year.

BTW I've never seen Welker make the catch Amendola did on that TD. Amendola is a beast tonight.

I've seen Welker make that catch quite a few times. I'm not even a Pats fan. Also, that was clearly a smoke screen injury be belichek. The shadiest coach of them all. I can't hate though cause I friends with his son. Played lax at Rut with my boy and lived with him most of his years there.

Also, the Bucs had the league worst pass defense in the league last year. The Eagles were right there with them. Hardly two games to base the efficiency of the pass game off of but Brady looks just as good as ever

Their secondary has been vastly improved though. However, Revis didn't play tonight so it wasn't as strong as it could have been.

Having said that the O still looks better now than it did in the preseason last year. In fact, the O didn't start clicking until about game 3 or 4 of the regular season. Not saying that this will necessarily translate into success come September, but it's looking very good. And as I've been saying, we do not miss Wes.

Brady and the Offense look really good to me. Doesn't seem like they've lost a step at all.

I don't know about vastly improved in the scope of tonight though. Leonard Johnson is seasoned another year but he didn't have much competition last year. Tom Brady picked on him all night. I like Johnthan Banks but he's still a rookie. Revis didn't play as mentioned. They cut Wright, which was warranted.

The O will always be good as long as Tom Brady is there. The recievers don't really matter when Brady is your QB. He won three superbowls and the biggest name recievers on those teams was Dieon Branch who dissapeared outside of NE and IMO its cause he was never all that good. I believe Welker was that good. They reinvigorated Moss's career. Might I add, I was really looking forward to TJ Moe before he got hurt. He's the next Welker IMO regardless of Amendola. Real bummed he got injured. That guy is gonna be a beast in the slot IMO. Amendola has more versatility and can split out wide

And just keep in mind - we will be getting the best TE in the world back soon too. This O will be very good. 1st team D looked good too.
