Tom Brady Injury Update: Bill Belichick Discusses Brady's Shoulder

New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick was positively Belichickian during his Friday news conference when asked about quarterback Tom Brady's health.

According to WEEI, Belichick declined to address Brady's health directly and would not elaborate on the injured shoulder that limited Brady during Thursday's practice and sidelined him the day before.

Asked what Brady was able to do on the field during Thursday's practice session, Belichick was again coy.

"Play quarterback," he said.

Asked what type of confidence the Patriots have in Brady's injured shoulder, Belichick implied that everyone will know on Sunday when Brady either does or does not play in New England's regular season finale against the Buffalo Bills.

"Anybody we put out on the field, I have confidence in or we wouldn't put him out there," Belichick said. "So if they're out there, we have confidence in him. If they're not out there, there is either another player ahead of him or we're not confident they can go out there [healthy]. It's as simple as that. We're not going to put anybody out there on the field that we don't have confidence in."
