Brady completed 20-of-37 passes for 261 yards and three touchdowns in Thursday's 27-22 win over the Jets.
Though Brady's numbers are impressive, the Patriots actually missed quite a few opportunities, between dropped passes and a couple of bad overthrows. Brady didn't quite match his performances from the past two weeks, but he still played a strong game, making up for the missed throws with some others that were excellent. It's safe to say that both he and the New England offense are back on track, as the offensive line has vastly improved from earlier this season, while TE Rob Gronkowski seems to get healthier each week. Also encouraging for Brady's owners, the Patriots ran the ball just 15 times in their first game since Stevan Ridley (torn ACL) went down for the year. Brady's Week 8 opponent, the Chicago Bears, has been up-and-down on defense this season.

Brady (ankle) is listed as active for Thursday's game against the Jets.
Rain could be a factor Thursday, but Brady is no stranger to less-than-ideal conditions, and coming off two straight effective games, he will take aim at a 1-5 Jets' squad that has allowed 15 passing TDs (tied for a league high) thus far.

Brady (ankle) was a limited participant in Tuesday's practice, ESPN.com reports.
A late addition to last week's injury report with an ankle issue, Brady was officially questionable to face Buffalo, but there never seemed to be any real doubt as to his availability. Perhaps Brady will again be tagged with a questionable designation, but owners can rest easy, as he should be just fine even on a short week.

Brady played though his ankle issue in Sunday's win over the Bills and while he could draw a questionable designation for Thursday's game against the Jets, at this stage, there's little doubt that the QB will start the game.

Brady (ankle) completed 27-of-37 passes for 361 yards and four touchdowns and no picks in Sunday's 37-22 win over the Bills.
With back-to-back strong efforts (in wins) under his belt, and his ankle issue evidently not much of an impediment, Brady's fantasy prospects are on the upswing in advance of Thursday's game against the Jets.

After being limited at Friday's practice, Brady was added to the Patriots' injury report, but, as expected, he'll give it a go Sunday, on the heels of his best effort of the season this past Sunday, in which he completed 23-of-35 passes for 292 yards and two touchdowns in Week 5's 43-17 win over Cincinnati.

Brady, who is questionable after twisting his ankle during Friday's practice, will start Sunday against the Bills, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.
The injury was never deemed serious enough to keep Brady out against the Bills, who are allowing over 250 passing yards per game this season. While it's best to verify his status ahead of Sunday's 1:00 ET kickoff, Brady looks good to go.

Brady was limited at Friday's practice and is now listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Bills with an ankle issue, the Boston Herald reports.
While it would be a surprise to see Brady sit out Sunday's game, given the official questionable tag that he now carries, the QB's Week 6 status is worth verifying in advance of Sunday's 1:00 ET kickoff.

Brady completed 23-of-35 passes for 292 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 43-17 win over the Bengals. He added 13 yards on four carries.
Brady and the New England offense finally broke out of their slump, putting up more than 500 total yards against a Cincinnati defense that entered the game on a roll. Brady was oddly kept in the game with the Patriots nursing a 23-point lead late in the fourth quarter, but he did most of his damage in the first 40 minutes. Tim Wright and Rob Gronkowski combined for 11 catches, 185 receiving yards and two touchdowns, while Stevan Ridley and Shane Vereen combined for 36 carries, 203 rushing yards and a touchdown. Most important of all, the offensive line played far better than in previous weeks, following an ugly showing in Kansas City. If the line keeps playing well, it may not be long before everyone forgets about Brady's slow start. Of course, one good game doesn't mean all the issues are solved.
