FOXBOROUGH — Patriots quarterback Tom Brady missed all of Thursday’s practice with a calf injury, according to the team’s official injury report.
Brady is no stranger to the New England Patriots injury report, but he is usually listed with a shoulder injury. He was not listed on the injury report on Wednesday, so the calf injury is mysterious to say the least.
He missed practice on Jan. 15, prior to the AFC Championship Game against the Denver Broncos, and still played in the game. Despite missing practice, Brady will play in the Patriots’ Week 1 showdown with the Miami Dolphins, according to Mike Reiss of ESPN. If Brady cannot play, for whatever reason, rookie quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo would likely get the nod in the very first game of his career.
The rest of the Patriots’ injury report remains unchanged: defensive end Michael Buchanan (ankle), tight end Rob Gronkowski (knee), and defensive tackles Chris Jones (ankle) and Sealver Siliga (hand) were all limited.
