NFL news: Tom Brady suffers minor injury, Kevin Kolb earns Friday start

Winslow Townson-USA TODAY Sports

Tom Brady is day-to-day with a knee injury, Kevin Kolb will start the next preseason game for the Bills and more you may have missed from Wednesday.

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady injured his knee in practice on Wednesday and had to leave the field. Fortunately, an MRI reportedly came back negative and his injury has been deemed not serious. It was a chaotic day, with Patriots fans in general panicking and at one point, major betting sites stopped taking bets on AFC winners and Super Bowl winners. At this point, Brady is listed as day-to-day.

Here's what else you may have missed on Wednesday:

Kolb to start Friday

Buffalo Bills quarterback Kevin Kolb will start on Friday against the Minnesota Vikings for the second game of the team's preseason. E.J. Manuel was the starter for the first game, but that might be due to the fact that Kolb missed about a week of practice leading up to the game. It's likely that the Bills will see who plays best between the two games to name a starter for Week 3.

Dunbar suspended four games

St. Louis Rams linebacker Jo-Lonn Dunbar was suspended for four games for violating the NFL's policy on performance enhancing drugs. Dunbar will be forced to sit out the first four regular season games, though he can still participate in the preseason. He was expected to play a big part in helping the Rams' defense make the jump from "pretty good" to "elite" this season.

Miller arrested Sunday

Denver Broncos linebacker Von Miller was arrested on Sunday for failing to appear in court. There was a warrant out for his arrest outstanding since January. He was arrested for careless driving, driving without a license and driving without proof of insurance last October, which is where the court case comes in to the picture. Definitely has not been a good few months for Miller at this point.

NFL, NFLPA reach agreement

The NFL and NFL Players Association have reached an agreement on HGH testing for the upcoming season. Every player in the league will have to submit to a blood test to seed an HGH population study. Five players selected from eight different teams will be tested each week, and a player who fails will be suspended for four games.
