Tom Brady Injury Update: Patriots QB Reportedly Has A Sprained Left Shoulder, Won't Be Limited

The New England Patriots will wrap up their 2011 regular season on Sunday against the Buffalo Bills at Gillette Stadium at 1 p.m.

During the week, Tom Brady was limited during Patriots' practices. As we've come to expect, New England head coach Bill Belichick was not forthcoming about the state of Brady's injury. He was firm that Brady will play on Sunday.

According to a report, Brady has a sprained left shoulder

Per a source with knowledge of the situation, Patriots QB Tom Brady has sprained left shoulder. I'm told it is "not an instability problem". (via Albert Breer's Twitter)

However, the injury is not expected to limit Brady during the game

At this point, for Brady, handling the injury is a matter of "pain control", per a source. Shouldn't limit him from a playing standpoint. (via Albert Breer's Twitter)
