On Sunday, the New England Patriots will face the Baltimore Ravens in arguably the best game that Week 9 has to offer. As the defending champions prepare for their toughest test to date, the offense has to practice without Tom Brady at full capacity.
Brady has played in every game this season so far, but it appears the 42-year-old quarterback is dealing with a shoulder injury.
The Patriots released their first injury report for this weekend's matchup against the Ravens.
Out of all the players on the injury report, the most surprising addition is Brady. He was listed as a limited participant on Wednesday.
Here is the full injury report for New England:
It'd take a major setback for Brady to be inactive this Sunday.
The most likely scenario here is that New England is playing it safe with Brady.
At this stage of his career, it makes no sense to put him through extensive drills if he's dealing with injuries. All that really matters for the Patriots is that Brady is available once kickoff arrives.
Despite all the concerns about his age, the six-time champion continues to produce at a high level. Brady has thrown for 2,251 yards, 13 touchdowns and four interceptions this season.
