It shouldn’t come as much of a surprise, but it sounds like Tom Brady will be in the lineup Sunday.
Brady was a surprise addition to the New England Patriots’ injury report Friday with an ankle injury. However, Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald reported Saturday afternoon that Brady was indeed traveling to Buffalo for Sunday’s game with the Bills. Additionally, Brady isn’t wearing a walking boot, according to the Herald.
That certainly sounds like good news for the Patriots, as it seems to indicate Brady is expecting to play.
This is the second time this season Brady was listed on an injury report as questionable. He fell into that category in Week 1 for what was listed as a calf injury.
It will be interesting to see if Brady is slowed at all by the injury, though. The Bills have one of the best pass rushes in the NFL, as evidenced by their league-leading 17 sacks through five games this season.
The Patriots’ offensive line has been ever-changing this season, and more changes could be on the way Sunday. Bryan Stork, who helped stabilize the line last week against Cincinnati, is questionable with a concussion. The unit has allowed Brady to be sacked 10 times so far.
