Good news following Wednesday's injury scare to Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, after Adam Schefter of ESPN reported that the knee injury he suffered isn't serious.

According to Schefter Brady underwent an MRI and it came back negative, which is good news after seeing him go down clutching his left knee when Nate Solder tripped following a bull-rush by Tampa defensive lineman Adrian Clayborn.  Solder fell back and rolled up on Brady's leg, and the veteran quarterback was on the turf clutching his knee after the play.

Karen Guregian of the Boston Herald reports that Brady's suffered a knee sprain, and at this point his status for the remainder of the preseason remains uncertain.

Obviously the Patriots don't need him for the preseason and the regular season is far more important at this point, but the good news is it appears that he'll hopefully be back by then.

For those who missed it, here is a link to the video of today's incident, and fortunately it ended up being not as serious as it appeared when it happened.
