BOSTON (CBS) – Breathe a sigh of relief: Tom Brady is expected to be back at practice Thursday afternoon.

The Patriots quarterback, who left Wednesday’s joint practice with the Buccaneers after lineman Nate Solder “kicked” his left knee, attended team meetings on Wednesday night and, baring any overnight swelling, will be back on the practice field Thursday — according to ESPN.

The Patriots’ franchise player will be re-examined at Gillette Thursday morning, but the preliminary diagnosis from an MRI on Wednesday showed no structural damage, and ESPN is reporting the injury is “more of a bruise.”

Brady also expects to play in Friday night’s preseason game at Gillette, NFL.com’s Albert Breer reports.

HURLEY: Injury Scare A Reminder Of Patriots’ Fragility

Panic spread around New England Wednesday afternoon when reports began to surface that Brady left practice with a left knee injury — the same knee he underwent surgery on in 2008 after tearing his ACL in the season-opener.

Shortly after practice, WBZ-TV’s Dan Roche reported that the injury Brady sustained is not serious and is likely a sprained knee.

Stick with CBSBostonsports.com for all the udpates from Thursday’s practice, the final practice of Training Camp this season.

Tune in to Patriots-Buccaneers Friday night on 98.5 The Sports Hub — the flagship station of the New England Patriots. Pregame coverage begins at 5 p.m. and Bob Socci and Scott Zolak have the call at 8 p.m.!
