Update: After Tom Brady sustained a knee injury in practice earlier today, ESPN is reporting that a source told Ed Werder that Brady "will be fine" and is expected to return to practice Thursday. The Patriots will also re-evaluate Brady in the morning as well.
The New England Patriots and their fanbase are holding their breathes right now as star quarterback Tom Brady appeared to have injured his left knee in Wednesday's practice. According to multiple media outlets such as ESPN's twitter page and website, Tom Brady was injured throwing a pass to rookie wide receiver Aaron Dobson.
On the play, Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive end Adrian Clayborn appeared to have pushed offensive tackle Nate Solder into Tom Brady as he was finishing his throwing motion. Brady remained down on the ground and held his left knee. Brady then limped off to the sideline after the play and came back to practice one play later. However, after the drill had ended Brady talked with head coach Bill Belichick, offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels and head trainer Tim Whalen, who all decided to keep Tom Brady from practicing further.
Buccaneers head coach Greg Schiano told his players to be careful and commented further. "Coach Belichick and I stressed to our teams: Let them throw the football," Schiano said. "Rush the passer, but go by them and don't get around them. I can't tell you [more] because I didn't see what happened."
It is too soon to tell the extent of his injury, however, the Patriots and their fanbase will be anxious to hear. Tom Brady had torn his ACL in the same knee back in Week 1 against the Kansas City Chiefs and missed the rest of the season.
