FOXBOROUGH — Tom Brady made a surprise appearance on the Patriots’ injury report Wednesday, as the quarterback was limited in practice because of a knee injury.

Brady tweaked the knee on a 6-yard completion to Julian Edelman in New England’s loss in Nashville on Nov. 11. Brady is expected to play against the Jets on Sunday, according to a league source.

Brady didn’t finish the game against the Titans, though that likely had more do to with the score (the Patriots trailed, 34-10, when Brian Hoyer entered) than the condition of Brady’s knee.

Brady looked free and fluid during the portion of Wednesday’s practice the media was allowed to watch.


This is the first time the remarkably durable 19-year veteran has been on the injury report this season.

Brady has missed time because of injury only in 2008, when he tore his ACL in the season opener. He has started every regular-season and playoff game since, except for the first four games of the 2016 season when he served his Deflategate suspension.
