Tom Brady makes a bootless trip to Buffalo

Boston Herald - [Full Article]

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is traveling to Buffalo Saturday with the Patriots despite suffering an ankle injury during yesterday's practice, according to a source.

Even better, he doesn't need a walking boot, indicating the injury isn't all that serious. Brady is officially listed as questionable for tomorrow's game against the Bills after the ankle popped up on the injury report for the first time yesterday afternoon.

It's only the fifth time Brady has been listed as questionable on an injury report, so that piqued the interest over the mystery ailment. He is 3-1 in the previous four games, including a perfect passer rating against the Lions on Thanksgiving in 2010. The lone loss happened in Week 1 against the Dolphins, though his balky calf was hardly the reason for that defeat.

Fantasy Impact: 

Even with very little injury information surfacing in the past 24 hours, there was hardly any doubt Brady would play against the Bills with first place on the line, the story said. He has fought through some nasty injuries to his shoulders, ribs, hand and ankle in the past, and his toughness has never been questioned. It very well could be some gamesmanship being played by the Pats. Brady is coming off a pretty good game last week against the Bengals but is still only ranked 16th on our QB list this week.
