Patriot’s fans are rejoicing today as their all-pro quarterback Tom Brady was a full participant in practice yesterday and is expecting to start in tonight’s preseason matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Brady was involved in a scary incident on Wednesday that resulted in a bruised knee after an incidental collision with teammate Nate Solder.
The Pat’s star quarterback underwent an MRI after going down at Wednesday’s scrimmage against the Bucs; the results showed no structural damage and his ACL that he tore in 2008 is in good condition. Tampa defensive end Adrian Clayborn clashed with Nate Solder as they accidentally collided with the Patriots’ quarterback. Brady participated in Thursday’s practice wearing a hinged knee brace. When reporters questioned his condition, Brady simply stated, “I’m good.”
Brady participated in Thursday’s practice without limitations. He has never shied away from any game in his career, and now is a more important time than ever to build chemistry with his new receiving corp. The preseason match-up against Tampa Bay will kick off at 8 p.m. EDT tonight at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass.
