While all of New England was nervously waiting to hear the severity of Tom Brady’s left knee injury that he suffered Wednesday afternoon, Las Vegas wasn’t taking any chances.
After limping off the field during 11-on-11s, Brady returned to complete three more passes only to leave the field again to be tended to by trainers. His injury caused a stir in the betting world, as Las Vegas Super Book took all Patriots bets off the board, according to ESPN radio host, RJ Bell, and Bovada suspended all Super Bowl and AFC playoff odds in the wake of the quarterback’s injury.

Reports have since surfaced that Brady’s injury is not serious, but New England wasn’t the only region concerned about the Patriots quarterback.
