Brady's right elbow injury doesn't sound good

  Brady's right elbow injury doesn't sound good It sounds like Tom Brady's right elbow injury wasn't just a tactic by the New England Patriots to psych out the Dallas Cowboys. Brady, who will play today despite being listed as questionable due to an elbow injury, was unable to finish practice on Friday, with backup Jarrett Stidham taking most of the reps afterwards.

Brady was listed as limited during Wednesday’s practice with a right hand injury . Brady had also been on the injury report with a hurt shoulder in late December but was taken off the injury report “I remember (Buffalo Bills running back ) LeSean McCoy said he had a high ankle sprain and came

FOXBOROUGH — Tom Brady wanted to set the record straight Friday afternoon.

He will not be lining up to kick any field goals or PATs Sunday when the Chiefs come to Gillette Stadium for a 4:25 kickoff.

“We’d be screwed if I was the kicker,’’ Brady said with a laugh, while also noting that he did not hurt his toe auditioning for the still-vacant spot on the New England’s special teams units.

Brady, however, will be under center against Kansas City as New England’s attempts to bounce back from last Sunday’s loss in Houston that dropped its record to 10-2.

Brady puts his own spin on the ‘Dak Dance’

Tom Brady In fact, it's part of Tom Brady's gameday routine as well.Prescott recently caught the attention of the football world via an exercise in which he snaps his hips as he shuffles. The "Dak Dance," which since has been mimicked by other NFL players and also used as a touchdown celebration, apparently was from the teachings of quarterback coach Tom House, who also has worked with Brady.

FOXBORO -- Tom Brady was back on the Patriots injury report Wednesday, this time with a thigh injury , but it won't be anything that keeps him off the field for Saturday's game with the Jets. The Patriots quarterback was last seen on the injury report headed into a Week 13 game with the Rams

Bouncing back strong this weekend, Karen, don’t you worry. We touched on this a bit in last week’s Bag, but I think the most obvious trade-acquisition candidate is Brady looked frustrated as he walked off the field, and when he got to the bench, he had an animated conversation with a teammate(s).

Pay no attention to those recent elbow and toe woes that landed him on the injury list; Brady was removed from the report Friday.

The ability to bounce back from a loss has been a hallmark since Bill Belichick took over; the Patriots have lost back-to-back games just 12 times.

It did happen twice last season, in Weeks 2 and 3 (they responded with a six-game winning streak) and in Weeks 14 and 15 (they responded with a five-game run culminating with their sixth Super Bowl title).

The key to staying out of slumps — the Patriots are 45-8 after losses since 2003 — is having a short memory, according to Brady.

“There’s been a lot of urgency,’’ said Brady. “I think when we win and we lose, Coach puts us right back into the mode of preparation and getting us ready [to get] back to play a game.”

Tom Brady seems open to playing for another team

  Tom Brady seems open to playing for another team Brady seems to prioritize playing as long as he wants, regardless of team. “The reality is there is no prediction. I have always said I have a plan to play longer and I will figure that out when the time comes,” Brady said.He also was asked whether part of his motivation to play longer in his career — like to age 45 or 46 — was to prove doubters wrong.“I think it would be pretty cool to do that. I definitely think there is an inspirational element to that,” Brady said. “There’s just different challenges. There were challenges when I was young, there’s challenges now.

Gronk, Brady off injury report ; 3 Pats out. Brady had a left shoulder and Achilles listed as his injuries but was not among the seven Patriots listed as questionable for the regular-season finale Sunday against the Jets at Gillette Stadium.

Tom Brady , listed as being ill in addition to having a knee injury , did not participate in Friday's practice, but Tom E. Curran reports Brady is expected to play against the Jets According to Patriots Insider Tom E. Curran, Brady 's knee issue is not severe enough that it will keep him off the field Sunday.

Brady’s slow-building chemistry with his young receivers has been a hot topic — and the cause of some heated sideline discussions. Earlier this week, offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels said practice and patience are the keys to getting on the same page.

“There’s no shortcut to it,’’ he said.

Brady stressed the bottom line when asked about the chemistry and McDaniels’s comments.

“It’s kind of just where we’re at,’’ he said. “We’ve added some players late and guys are coming back from injury and so forth.

“I’ve said this before: Like every team in the league, there’s excuses. It’s did you win or did you not? I mean, at the end of the day, that’s what it comes down to.”

Mystery is afoot

The Patriots went a third straight practice without signing a new (or old) kicker, though it’s likely the situation could be worked out Saturday afternoon.

Nick Folk had his appendix removed the day before Thanksgiving, prompting the club to sign Kai Forbath, who was cut after the loss in Houston.

Tom Brady on elbow: I actually feel really good

  Tom Brady on elbow: I actually feel really good Patriots quarterback Tom Brady has been on the injury report the last couple of weeks due to a right elbow issue, but it didn’t keep him from playing last Sunday and it doesn’t sound like it will impact his availability for this Sunday against the Texans either.

It’s possible Folk just needs to clear a final hurdle before he would be re-signed. He was solid in his three games, converting 7 of 9 field goal attempts and all three of his PATs.

Belichick noted he might have to “go with who we’ve got” against the Chiefs.

Asked about players who could kick in an emergency, Belichick said, “I mean, [Jake] Bailey has kicked off all year since [Stephen] Gostkowski got hurt.’’

If the Patriots go with Bailey, they’d need to work in a new holder, as well, because Bailey has handled those duties all season.

Karras, Cowart out

Center Ted Karras, who suffered a knee injury against the Texans, and defensive tackle Byron Cowart, who is dealing with a head injury, were ruled out against the Chiefs. Neither had practiced this week. James Ferentz will start in Karras’s place . . .

Chiefs running back Damien Williams (ribs) was ruled out, meaning veteran LeSean McCoy should get the start. Kansas City placed running back Darrel Williams (hamstring) on injured reserve earlier in the week. Cornerbacks Morris Claiborne (shoulder) and Rashad Fenton (hamstring) also were ruled out.

Tom Brady: Patriots' illnesses not to blame for loss to Texans

  Tom Brady: Patriots' illnesses not to blame for loss to Texans Several Patriots players were listed as questionable for Sunday due to illness, but Tom Brady said that wasn't the source of New England's problems.Flu-like symptoms that struck several New England Patriots players in recent days were apparently so severe that Bill Belichick’s team used two chartered jets to fly to Houston — one for the healthy and one for the stricken — but it still didn’t prevent a sickly performance in the Sunday night setback.

Various media reports said Brady injured his hand when a team mate ran into him at practice with 98.5 The Sports Hub’s Michael Felger reporting he needed four stitches to While the injury is not considered serious, Brady did not practice on Thursday and cancelled his media availability that day.

NFL Network then reported that it was a running back who crashed into Brady during a handoff. The Patriots announced that Brady is expected to hold a news conference at some point Friday. Brady had also appeared on the injury report over the last two months with Achilles and left

Two-way street?

Patriots cornerback Stephon Gilmore raised some eyebrows this week when he said he’d be willing to play receiver if he thought it would help. “It don’t look that hard to me,’’ he said during a spot on 98.5 The Sports Hub Wednesday. Count Edelman, who has played on both sides of the ball, as a believer. “He said that?” Edelman said Friday. “Probably. He’s good.’’ . . . Kansas City holds an 18-14-3 advantage in the all-time series. The Chiefs played as the Dallas Texans from 1960-62 before relocating to Kansas City. The series has been played in multiple venues, including the Cotton Bowl, Municipal Stadium in Kansas City, Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, Boston University’s Nickerson Field, Fenway Park, Boston College’s Alumni Stadium, Schaefer/Foxboro Stadium, and Gillette Stadium.
