    Didn't see this posted anywhere,so I guess this is the name for the injury he has in that non throwing shoulder.

    Tom Brady Injury: Patriots Quarterback Has Sprained AC Joint - SB Nation Boston

    It must be secretly painful for Tom,fortunately this will not stop him from playing but is an injury that should be rested ASAP when the season is over as it is nearly a 2 month healing process.

    Had this been in his throwing shoulder,it might have been a different story regarding his ability to play in these playoff games.

    Eerily similar to the 2007 season when Brady entered the playoffs with another sprain,that high ankle sprain.....this one hopefully will not be a hindrance to him any further.

    Did he get hurt on one of those QB sneaks?

    I think it might have happened sometime in those last 2 games of the season,possibly on a sack...I believe Buffalo is when this occurred maybe when he got sacked pretty hard by Kellen Heard...or maybe it was against Miami.

    Provided the injury happened before Denver, this is of little concern. His play in Denver proves it isn't something that will keep him from being effective. If the injury happened (or was aggravated) at the end of the Denver game or during practice this week (why he missed Tuesday?) then it is ultra concerning........certainly enough to place the odds of a victory considerably further away.
    Hopefully I am worried for no reason.

    I am sure it is the reason he missed practice, but not because it happened in the last week!

    You'll find it just needs some extra rest!

    It was Wednesday, IIRC, and he has missed Wednesday practices many times before to heal and rest. As he said, he was certainly still reviewing the game plan and doing lots of work.

    Hopefully, we get a win Sunday and 2 weeks of rest, but considering that he is not even listed on the practice report anymore I don't think you should be all that worried.

    This "Sprained AC Joint" is nothing more than the technical name of his minor injury, which is pretty much as you stated.

    He isn't appearing on the injury report anymore, so I think it's just something that they were minorly cautious about down the stretch at the end of December--and why not? I'd have done the same thing.

    Missing practice on Wednesday is absolutely no big deal, in my opinion, as it was likely done out of being overly cautious.

    As far as "taking up to 2 months to heal" properly, I believe that's in a worst case scenario...it also could be noted that the doctors claimed Roethlisberger would take until "the end of May" for his ankle to fully recover.

    All things considered, I believe that Tom is just fine heading into the last game or two of the yr.

    Yeah, let's put this one to bed PF24.

    This thread has the capacity to scare a lot of people for no particular reason.

    I understand what the OP was trying to relay in terms of his thoughts etc and that is totally understandable, and I respect it 100%; but in the bigger picture of things, there's a good chance that a lot of posters will simply scan the title and get worried for nothing.

    Maybe this will drop down the list on the front page, and people will realize that it's just the technical name for what Brady has been experiencing in the last month or so.

    No disrespect at all intended for PATRIOTSFANINPA, who is a great poster.

    As long as it's a grade 1 sprain, which doesn't involve tearing of the ligaments, its a very minor injury. Not concerned even a little bit about this. It usually takes a couple weeks to heal and not much you can do for it but rest and ice.

    Thanks for fixing the error regarding the day he missed. While true he has missed practices as a matter of function (sometimes), it seemed potentially concerning to me to miss practice prior to the AFC championship. But I'll gladly agree with you, and others, who said this is an existing "minor" injury of no significant concern (though not being on BB's injury report is of little comfort)
    My temporary pessimism made it necessary to speak about the worse case scenario (that it was a new injury). I'm over it .....:cool:

    Re: Brady diagnosed with Sprained AC Joint

    And maybe people will also realize that the only reason it's being discussed again is because Albert Breer needed to generate a story that intimated he had team sources. And he was too busy defending a disgraced former OSU HC's qualifications to coach the Colts on twitter to come up with anything more than a rehash of his earlier reports on a month old injury to TFB.

    The injury happened in the Miami game, after which during the presentation to Kraft of the oil painting he one arm hugged the boss. He had xrays and an MRI after Christmas that were essentially negative (no structural damage). However since it was painful enough to warrant investigation and was slightly inflamed, as any good whack and bruise generally is, it needs a medical name. He's had some Wednesdays off all season. Including when he had the potentially devastating bone bruise the media had to incorrectly identify as tendinitis (because bruises are inflamation) on his actual throwing elbow...

    Bill has learned to judiciously rest some of his veterans over the last several seasons, for their mental as well as physical well being. Tom still works on his rest days although often what he does in the couple of hours the team is on the practice field is additional film study and fullfill media committments to the various networks, as he did this week sitting for multiple one on ones...

    I'm amazed the melon sized yet meaningless swelling on Gronk's elbow during the Denver game went essentially uncovered.

    At this point in the season nobody is 100%.

    However, you know defenders will be looking to drive that shoulder intothe ground if they can. Brady is a warrior and a veteran, so he'll be able to handle it.

    Who gave this thread 5 stars?

    Let me guess.....a Ravens troll who is hoping for as many breaks as they can get because they know their chances to get to the SB are not expected by the majority :rolleyes:

    Sorry,but it's going to take more than this injury to win this game :cool:

    As far as injuries go, the AC sprain he is dealing with right now is far less harming than the ankle sprain he had in the 2007 postseason. On that occasion, his mobility was severely limited and his mechanics were off, affecting his performance pretty noticeably.

    I feel bad for Brady, but it isn't a big concern. In the two games since his injury, Brady has completed 49 of 69 passes (71%) for 701 yards, 9 TDs, and 2 INTs. It really hasn't hurt his play.

    That injury didn't prevent him from sneaking the ball on his left shoulder vs the Broncos for a 1st down.

    My concern for Brady goes beyond his playing career into his post career

    Injuries like this become Arthritic quite easily.....I hope after his playing days are over that these types of injury don't turn into something like that.

    I'm sure nice, long, slow massages will help . . . or, at least, that's what TFB tells Gisele. ;)
