Tom Brady leaves practice with apparent knee injury

ESPN - [Full Article]

There was a bit of a scare on Wednesday at New England Patriots camp, where quarterback Tom Brady went down and grabbed his left knee after an incomplete pass in 11-on-11 drills in a joint practice with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. A fan's video appears to show Bucs defensive lineman Adrian Clayborn push Patriots offensive lineman Nate Solder into Brady's leg just after he threw the ball. Brady immediately went down and grabbed his leg.

After limping to the sideline under his own power, Brady missed one play before rejoining and completing the drill. Following the drill, Brady huddled with coach Bill Belichick, offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels and head trainer Jim Whalen and it was determined that Brady would not continue to practice.

He jogged off the field with Whalen under his own power. The severity of the injury is unclear, but whatever Brady felt on play was enough that the team wanted to be cautious.

Update: Ian Rapoport on Twitter... What I'm hearing from a source on Patriots QB Tom Brady's knee: "It's not serious."

Fantasy Impact: 

It's a good sign that Brady was able to jog off the field under his own power. More info to come, but for now, don't panic.
