Patriots QB Tom Brady on health: 'I'll be there Sunday'

Tom Brady returned to the practice field Wednesday as the Patriots continued their preparations for Sunday's game against the Jets.

Brady dealt with a similar injury last season, but that didn't stop the Patriots from winning the Super Bowl.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported Tuesday that Brady had suffered an AC joint sprain in his left shoulder and that the future Hall of Fame quarterback did not participate in practice on Tuesday.

Brady then re-aggravated the injury in the game against Tampa Bay. The quarterback hit total is the most he'd ever been hit in his first five games of a season. The good news is that the injury is in his left shoulder - not his throwing shoulder.

Brady is 40-years-old and has never taken a beating like this in his football life.

One way to do that would be to put pressure on Brady like the Panthers, and every other team this season, did.

Fortunately, Rapoport also stated that Brady would not miss Week 6 against the New York Jets. Against the Panthers, he was sacked three times and hit seven times. The bad news is he is on pace to be sacked more times this year than any other season in his career.
