The New England Patriots officially listed Tom Brady as a limited participant in Thursday's practice with an injury to his left shoulder. Reports said Brady wouldn't practice on Thursday but by that afternoon he was out there in a limited capacity.
Previous reports say that Brady took a hit last weekend against the Miami Dolphins which required an MRI. The results said he was good to go but concerns increased when he missed practice on Wednesday. Officially, Brady was listed as missing Wednesday's practice for non-injury related reasons. But by Thursday he was limited with the shoulder injury.
However much he practices, Brady is still expected to play in Week 17. The Patriots are looking to secure home field advantage throughout the playoffs and, while reports have acknowledged the injury, no one is suggesting Brady won't play this weekend.
