08:04 AM ET 12.30 | A day after missing practice on a planned absence, Tom Brady surprised a few by throwing on Thursday. There's been much made in the last few days about [Brady's] left shoulder, but we've yet to reach a consensus on what exactly's going on. Is there anything to worry about? How badly did it hurt? ... But let's just say this: Tom Brady's left shoulder isn't 100 percent. Maybe it's 70 percent, maybe it's 80 percent, maybe it's 99 percent. But it's not 100 percent. For what it's worth, someone who was inside the locker room after the game told me they saw Brady seek out a trainer for help getting his jersey off because he couldn't lift the left shoulder high enough, but whatever, that's not exactly breaking news.

How did this injury happen? Was it Gisele breaking a chair over his left shoulder because her Eggs Benedict were runny? He really should know better.

Everything out of the Patriot organization is ignored. No team does a better job of concealing injuries.

Consider the source. talking heads at best is all that company has

Everyone's banged up, that's not news. The story is whether a 30-something Brady can shake off his injuries the way that a 20-something Brady did. Based on the last few years, the answer has been no.

Everyone is banged up by this point of the season, that isn't news. The thing to watch is whether a 30-something Tom Brady can shake off the injuries the way that a 20-something Brady could. Based the last few years in the playoffs, the answer has been no.

Isn't it Brady that's been listed as questionable on the weekly injury reports for like five years now?

Non-throwing shoulder...


Non-story.

If that's the case then I will say Roethlisberger's injury is a built in excuse as well... how about that?

"that's not exactly breaking news"

glad to see the interns being honest now...anyway, this means absolutely nothing until a game situation. Then we'll see.

Did someone get fined for hurting him?
