New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, who underwent tests on his non-throwing left shoulder after taking some big hits in the team’s victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last week, did not participate in the team’s practice Tuesday.
It was the first practice Brady has missed this season. Brady’s left shoulder isn’t expected to keep him out of Sunday’s road game against the New York Jets, according to a source.
After Thursday’s win over the Buccaneers, Brady described the hits as just football before saying, I’ll be there next Sunday.

The Eagles (5-1) now have a commanding lead in the NFC East. They already own division wins over the second-place Redskins (2-2) and the winless Giants (0-5). Thursday’s win also gives them a tie-breaker over the Panthers, which could be important for playoff seeding.
