NFL teams continuously try to limit media presence during practice sessions so that they can be coy about injuries, but that did not help one bit for the New England Patriots whenever star quarterback Tom Brady went down with a leg injury on Wednesday afternoon.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive lineman Adrian Clayborne push Nate Solder in to Brady as the pocket collapsed. Brady immediately crumbled to the ground and grabbed his leg before leaving the practice.
Thanks to one fan, Chad Kopcak, who was in attendance for the practice, we have a video of Brady’s unfortunate injury which came on Tim Tebow’s birthday.
Here is the video that Kopcak was able to capture:
Patriots fans were immediately and understandably concerned when Brady went down and there has yet to be an update on his injury.
A serious injury to Brady’s leg would be an obvious disaster for the Patriots, who would have to rely on Ryan Mallett or Tebow, but Patriots fans should retain hope before an official injury update is given.
