When the news broke that Tom Brady left practice on Wednesday afternoon due to injury no one knew how serious of an injury it was.
Brady limped off the field, favoring his left knee, but he returned to practice shortly thereafter. He eventually walked off the field, talked with Bill Belichick and offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels, and left practice with the team trainer and didn’t return.
Patriots president Jonathan Kraft went on Felger & Mazz soon after practice ended and said he does not think it’s anything serious.
“It hopefully did not appear to be that bad, but that is not a definitive statement,” Kraft said. “Let’s not go crazy with it and let’s find out what really happened.”
Brady underwent reconstructive surgery on that same knee in 2008 after suffering an injury in Week 1 that cost him the entire season, but Kraft isn’t too worried.
“Look Tom takes great care of himself. The one thing that you’re not ever going to see happen with Tom are the little – it’s going to have to be something of a consequence of being on the field and having somebody pushed into you and something happen. He takes such amazing care of his body the idea of muscle pulls and strains and that type of thing just does not happen.”
They moved on from Brady and his injury to discuss Tim Tebow and why he was brought in. They also talked about how the team and organization is moving on from the Aaron Hernandez situation. Have the reviewed how they will look at players in the future?
