New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady had an MRI on his left shoulder, but results came back negative.
NBC Sports Boston is reporting that Brady missed practice Tuesday with what has been diagnosed as an AC joint sprain, but he is expected to play in Sunday's game against the New York Jets at MetLife Stadium.
Brady has been sacked 16 times this season. NBC Sports Boston said Brady hurt his shoulder when Julius Peppers sacked him in the Patriots Oct. 1 loss to the Carolina Panthers and re-aggravated it in last week's win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Though he has often shown up on the injury report throughout his career, Brady has been mostly injury-free with the exception of the 2008 season, when he suffered a season-ending knee injury in the opening game against the Kansas City Chiefs.
The Patriots record is currently 3-2, tied for first place in the AFC East with the Jets and the Buffalo Bills.
So far this year, Brady has thrown for 1,702 yards and 11 touchdowns. But he has clearly missed wide receiver Julian Edelman, who is out for the season after injuring his knee in a preseason game.
