Patriots HC Belichick on QB Tom Brady
What is the update with Tom today?
“I don’t really have anything to add from last night.”
Did Tom require x-rays to get a closer look at his shoulder?
“I’m not comfortable getting into a public diagnosis of anything. Look, we played a physical game against a very physical team. I’m sure at the end of the game a lot of guys were sore and had bumps and bruises and all that. Everybody that played in the game would fall into that category. That’s pretty normal after a game like that.”
With Tom, are you saying that his shoulder is just the normal bumps and bruises from a physical game and there is nothing more than that?
“I’m saying that we made the decision to play other quarterbacks in the second half of the Washington game because we wanted to see them play. That will be the same situation going forward into the Giants game. Tom had a desire to play, but we made a football decision to play other players because I think we need to see them at that position, and make an evaluation there. That’s what I’m saying.”
