Tom Brady is a machine, so anyone who thought Brady might miss the rest of the preseason after Wednesday’s knee scare really doesn’t know much about “Tom Terrific.”
Around The League is reporting that Brady expects to practice on Thursday, and start in the preseason game against Tampa Bay on Friday.
Tom Brady expects to play tomorrow against Tampa. Whether he does or not is an open ?. But worst fear after tests was bone bruise. Not bad.

Of course the NFL world came to a standstill, after Buccaneers defensive end Adrian Clayborn bull rushed Patriots left tackle Nate Solder right into Brady’s knee.
MRI results revealed Brady’s knee didn’t suffer any structural damage, and the reconstruction of the ACL that he tore in Week 1 of the 2008 season wasn’t compromised.
Brady will reportedly be re-examined on Thursday.
