Brady Misses Practice With Foot Injury

UPDATE: Brady practiced on Thursday, so all is well for the Patriots heading into Sunday’s game against the Steelers.

Sound the alarms! Tom Brady has missed practice for the first time this season! It actually is somewhat notable, as you may remember Brady managed to practice the same day as his car accident in September. So, Brady rarely misses practice, and considering his opponent (the Pittsburgh Steelers) this Sunday, he may not want to miss any more.

Brady was listed on the injury report with shoulder and foot injuries. The foot injury, as noted by the Globe, is probably what kept him out of practice, because he is always listed for the shoulder.

Aside from missing the final 15 games of the 2008 season due to his horrific knee injury, Brady has not missed a start since taking over for the injured Drew Bledsoe during the 2001 campaign.

Analysis

I’d say there’s no way Brady misses Sunday’s big game. The Patriots need the win to keep pace with the Jets and keep Pittsburgh a game back as the three teams battle for home-field position in the playoffs.

Belichick could be holding Brady out of practice to stir up the Steelers, but under current NFL rules, that’s difficult to do. Teams are penalized if they ever “lie” on their injury report. Since Belichick has already cheated the NFL once (Spygate), I don’t think it would be in his best interest to do it again.

Should Brady somehow miss the game, Brian Hoyer would make his first career start.
