Brady banged up with a foot sprain for the Pats

The Steelers got awful news on Wednesday with having to put Max Starks on IR, but the Pats have some bad news of their own with QB Tom Brady being banged up with a foot sprain. He missed his first practice of the season on Wednesday, but reports say he’ll play Sunday night.

Quarterback Tom Brady is battling a foot sprain but is expected to play Sunday night against the Steelers, the Boston Globe reported Wednesday, citing a league source. Brady missed his first practice of the season on Wednesday. In his absence, backup quarterback Brian Hoyer took the snaps during the team’s first day of practice leading up to the Steelers’ game.

    Brady would worry me even if he was playing from a wheel-chair!He will play and as his usual, he will play BIG against the Steelers. Brady has career numbers versus the Steelers and the recent Steeler woes in pass defense might make this a shootout. Either way, I still see our Steelers finding a way to pull this out, whether Brady is hobbled or not. Not that Brady is much of a runner, his pocket presence and the Patriots penchant for using the short pass as a running game will probably keep Brady from taking too much punishment.None the less, I see the Steelers going right at Brady and forcing even quicker passes/decisions and hopefully the errant throw or 2…. or 3!

    Don’t believe the foot sprain BS! This is just another Belichick smoke screen. He’s had Brady on the weekly injury list with a “shoulder” for years now. He does it just to be a douche bag and screw with the league. As we know he thinks has a different set of rules than everybody else. I’m on this stuff living here in Mass and being a sports radio junkie. I wish I was at Heinz Sunday night!

    I hope Lamar and Silver Back make a Brady sandwich early 1st quarter! The Tapetriots will most certainly try to go with 5 wides and spread out the Stillers D I think. They’ve use that approach B4. I’m just worried about the O line and when all these injuries will catch up to other wise a VERY solid team!

        CT has some good Steeler’s bars I’ve been told. Here on the radio the hosts and callers all agree that this game comes down to Brady. They will not be able to run the ball on the Steelers so it’s Brady (without the help of the defensive signals being radio’d to him B4 the play)against Dick LeBeau. The Pats will be up for this game after getting embarrassed by the Brownies so I expect them to give us their best. My barber who lives in the next town, Clinton, MASS is a big Stiller fan and is going to the game and promising to have a sign in the stands. Something like ” I’m a MASShole but I’m part of Steelers nation”
