Brady trotted through Thursday's session wearing a hinged knee brace, Breer reported. ESPNBoston.com's Mike Reiss noted the 36-year-old passer showed no limitations during a "slower-paced" practice.
"I'm good," Brady told reporters, via The Associated Press. "You can all go home."
Brady was injured Wednesday when Bucs defensive end Adrian Clayborn bull-rushed Patriots offensive tackle Nate Solder, who then fell into his quarterback. MRI results revealed Brady's knee didn't suffer any structural damage, and the reconstruction of the ACL that he tore in Week 1 of the 2008 season wasn't compromised, Breer reported.
Nobody would blame the Patriots for sealing Brady in bubble wrap until September, but that goes against everything the quarterback has stood for during his 13-year career. Brady never has shied away from preseason snaps. Especially not now, as he builds chemistry with his cast of young pass-catchers.
Breathe easy, New England. All is well.
