After the hit in Tampa, Brady stayed down for a bit, wincing in pain.
Until Brady retires, the AFC East looks to be a black hole for the Jets. It's only Tuesday and giving a 40-year-old quarterback a day off doesn't seem like the worst idea.
Brady was hit 19 times and sacked nine times in three playoff games.
Brady then re-aggravated the injury in the game against Tampa Bay.
Brady initially said he had no knowledge of tampered footballs, but a NFL-ordered report from Ted Wells indicated that it was more than likely that Brady knew of the tampering.
"This guy's like Father Time", defensive coordinator Kacy Rodgers said.
The Patriots have opened the season with five consecutive non-divisional games, with their season oddly stacked to feature divisional games in five of the last six games of the year.
For the Jets, running back Bilal Powell (calf) and defensive end Muhammad Wilkerson (shoulder, toe) sat out practice. "I can't say enough good things about everything he's meant to our offense".
"We're definitely not happy about it. We all want to do a better job, we all want to play better".
Despite the Jets being a decent team against fantasy quarterbacks so far, Brady has continued to show that is as close to matchup proof as you can get. The Patriots have not played well of late. Here's a quarterback that has missed a total of 15 games to injury since taking over as the Patriots' starter back in 2001.
"The more we let them run, the more Tom Brady is going to be able to stand back there when it's time to pass", Williams said. They can't sack you if you're handing the ball off.
