Brady completed 14-of-23 passes for 159 yards, with one touchdown and two interceptions in Monday's 41-14 loss to the Chiefs. He also lost one of his two fumbles.
Brady played one of the worst games of his career, as the Patriots rarely found anything easy, and their signal-caller forced a few ill-advised passes. The only big plays came on a swing pass to Shane Vereen and a slant to Brandon LaFell, the latter of whom broke two tackles on his way to a 44-yard touchdown that cut the lead to 27-7 in the third quarter. Brady was removed from the game after the Patriots' next drive, which ended with an ugly pick-six. The veteran hasn't forgotten how to throw the ball, but he's never been particularly mobile, and is currently stuck behind an offensive line that can't pass protect.

Brady completed 24-of-37 passes for 234 yards and a TD in Sunday's 16-9 win over the Raiders.
The Patriots' offense was sluggish Sunday, and for the third consecutive game, Brady was held to one TD pass. He'll look to top that mark next Monday when the Patriots face the Chiefs.

Brady completed 15-of-22 passes for 149 yards and a TD in Sunday's 30-7 win over the Vikings.
Sunday's win was largely paced by the team's defense and ground game, but there will no doubt be weeks going forward when Brady is asked to do more. Next up for Brady and the Patriots is a home game against the Raiders in Week 3.

Brady (calf) completed 29-of-56 passes for 249 yards and a TD in Sunday's 33-20 loss to the Dolphins.
Brady, who lost a pair of fumbles in the game, was not at his best Sunday, though assuming the calf issue that had him listed as questionable in advance of Week 1 does not linger, there is some reason for optimism moving forward, with Brady's top red zone target Rob Gronkowski having returned to the Patriots' attack on Sunday.

Brady (calf) is active for Sunday's game against the Dolphins.
As expected, Brady is out there if you need him Sunday, and while he was listed as limited at practice Friday by his calf issue, his Week 1 prospects get a nice boost, with tight end Rob Gronkowski also listed as active Sunday.

Brady (calf), who was limited at practice Friday, is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Dolphins, ESPN's Mike Reiss reports. That said, the report adds that Brady is expected to play in the contest, a notion echoed by the Boston Herald.
For his part, Brady -- who missed practice Thursday with a calf injury -- stated later that evening on his weekly appearance on Westwood One radio that he will be "ready to go Sunday." In the name of thoroughness, Brady owners are advised to verify his status in advance of Sunday's 1:00 ET kickoff, but all signs point to him playing, despite his official questionable designation.

Brady (calf) returned to practice Friday, Mike Whitmer of the Boston Globe reports.
Brady was not present in Thursday's practice, claiming he took the day off from physical activity to watch film and take mental reps, while continuing to assert that he'll be ready for Sunday's game. His presence in practice confirms this assertion, and as expected, look for Brady to take the field for the Pats' matchup against the Dolphins.

Brady (calf) said Thursday night that he'll be ready for Sunday's game against the Dolphins, CSN New England reports. "Yeah, physically I had the day off but I got a lot of extra film, mental reps walkthroughs and such," Brady said. "I'll be ready to go Sunday."
Brady did mention that "anything can happen" between now and Sunday, but it seems rather clear that he expects to play. He's been on the injury report quite a few times over the years, but the only issue that actually kept him out of a game over the last 12 seasons was his torn ACL in 2008. The Miami defense put up a good fight against Brady and Co. in both matchups last year, but the Dolphins' task will be a bit harder if Rob Gronkowski (knee) is able to play Sunday. Of the key members of Brady's supporting cast, only Gronk is in any danger for Week 1, and the star tight end said that he expects to play.

Brady is expected to play Sunday against the Dolphins despite missing Thursday's practice with a calf injury, according to the Boston Herald.
It's a notion echoed by Ben Volin of the Boston Globe, with Brady's level of practice participation Friday, and subsequent injury designation, obviously of great interest to his fantasy owners in advance of Week 1.

Brady missed Thursday's practice due to a calf issue, the Patriots' official site reports.
Brady's absence Thursday was notable, given that he practiced Wednesday and had not been previously been listed on the team's injury report. What he does -- or doesn't do -- at practice Friday will be telling, though ESPN.com suggests that Brady (who is backed up by Jimmy Garoppolo) will be ready for Sunday's game against the Dolphins. An official probable designation come Friday would of course go a long way in supporting that notion.
