New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady (right shoulder) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. He was limited in practice on Thursday and listed as a full participant on Friday.
He was on the injury report last week, so this is becoming a trend. Brady doesn't always need a full week on the practice field and he does plenty of prep work in the film room and with his coaching staff.
He could probably use some extra practice time, though. This might be the worst stretch he's ever had, with only two passing touchdowns in his past four games. Before this rough patch Brady threw a TD in 52 straight games. His numbers are pedestrian across the board, with 5.9 yards per attempt, a 55.7 completion percentage and a passer rating of 74.9. All of those are his lowest since 2000, a year in which he played in just one game
Fantasy impact: Fantasy owners are probably sick of this and there's a good chance you might want to sit him in favor of a player that is performing. The matchup isn't great, but of course this seems like the type of game where Brady could explode.
