Tom Brady QB NE 9 Days
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.

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.
