Tom Brady's left knee injury wound up being much ado about nothing, but the New England Patriots quarterback continues to wear a hefty brace in practices, as he did Monday.
That comes at the request of the big man above, team owner Robert Kraft.
"I had (the brace on) today. Everyone was very pleased," Brady said Monday, per the team's official website. "Kraft felt pretty strongly about me wearing it. He said, 'What's the problem?' I said 'I'll wear it, I'll wear it.'"
Brady was injured last Wednesday in a joint practice with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He tumbled to the ground after Bucs defensive end Adrian Clayborn bull-rushed Patriots offensive tackle Nate Solder, who fell into Brady. Reports eventually called it a bruise. Brady was himself against the Bucs in the game, starting out 11-for-11.
