The official injury report for Super Bowl XLII has been released and there’s one familiar name on it. Tom Brady, who has been listed on the injury report each week for the last four years, is listed as “full participation in practice” with a right shoulder. On Thursday’s Sportscenter, Kenny Mayne has a satirical piece talking with Brady about his “tender” right shoulder.
Jabar Gaffney is listed under “limited participation in practice” due to a shoulder, and on the Giants side, WR Plaxico Burress did not participate in practice Wednesday due to an ankle injury, though he was healthy enough to predict a 23-17 Giants victory.
