When asked about Tom Brady, who left Friday night's preseason game after appearing to injure his shoulder, the coach didn't disclose any information.
?I?m not comfortable getting into a public diagnosis of anything," he said. "Look, we played a physical game against a very physical team. I?m sure at the end of the game a lot of guys were sore and had bumps and bruises and all that. Everybody that played in the game would fall into that category. That?s pretty normal after a game like that.?
Belichick also said that taking Brady out of the game for the second half had more to do with letting other players get reps than it did with an injury.
?I?m saying that we made the decision to play other quarterbacks in the second half of the Washington game because we wanted to see them play," Belichick said. "That will be the same situation going forward into the Giants game. Tom had a desire to play, but we made a football decision to play other players because I think we need to see them at that position, and make an evaluation there. That?s what I?m saying.?
