New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was among seven players listed on the team's first official injury report ahead of this Sunday's home meeting against the winless New York Jets.
Dealing with what the team is calling a calf ailment, the 42-year-old Brady was among four players who was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice behind Gillette Stadium. It's unclear how or when Brady suffered the injury, but if it's limited him, Brady would be fooling all of us, with 605 yards and five touchdowns through two games.
It's probably nothing to worry about just yet, though, as Brady isn't exactly a stranger to the injury report. In fact, he spent about a decade or so on it with a shoulder injury that held him out of a grand total of zero games.
Brady finished Sunday's blowout win over the Dolphins 20-for-28 with 264 yards and two touchdowns.
In addition to Brady, tight end Matt LaCosse was limited with the ankle injury he's battled all season, while offensive linemen Marcus Cannon (shoulder) and Caleb Benenoch (calf) were also limited. Injured on an awkward fall in the fourth quarter of their Opening Night win, Cannon was held out of last Sunday's win over the Dolphins, while Benenoch was signed just yesterday.
Linebacker Shilique Calhoun and fullback James Develin, meanwhile, both missed Wednesday's session. Develin missed practice due to a neck injury, while Calhoun's absence was not injury related.
It's not all bad, though, as running back Brandon Bolden was on the report, but as a full participant. Bolden was ruled out of last week's head-to-head with the Dolphins with a hamstring. The 29-year-old Bolden, who does the majority of his work on special teams, had one carry for seven yards in New England's Week 1 victory over the Steelers.
The Jets, meanwhile, have enough injuries to fill up an entire hospital wing, really, with seven players missing Wednesday's practice with various injuries, and another four players participating on a limited basis.
Adam Gase's squad will be without quarterbacks Sam Darnold (mono, not traveling to Foxboro) and Trevor Siemian (ankle, out for the season) for Week 3, which means third-stringer Luke Falk to be Gotham's starting quarterback on Sunday.
