Wide receiver Randy Moss was the only one who offered any quotes of value about the extent of quarterback Tom Brady’s injury, and listening to Moss it appears Brady may not be on the field next weekend against the New York Jets.
When asked about the performance of back-up quarterback Matt Cassel, Moss offered up a quote that made it seem like Cassel will be the one throwing him passes again next Sunday.
“Matt Cassel had a hell of a game,” said Moss during his postgame press conference. “Hopefully he can pick up next week where he left off.”
Needless to say it sounds like Brady will be out next week after the knee injury he suffered during the first quarter of Sunday’s 17-10 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs. Brady was injured after the Chiefs Bernard Pollard hit his leg on a pass to Moss. It’s a play Moss says he didn’t see at the time, but after watching the replay it has him concerned.
“Anytime you have a key guy go down, it hurts,” said Moss. “I just saw the play (on replay) and it kind of looked bad. So like I said I don’t know his injury, I don’t know what happened, how long the injury’s going to affect him or what it may be. But he wasn’t out there for the rest of the game and I think anytime that something like that happens there is a concern.”
