Tom Brady expected to play despite being on injury report due to elbow
Tom Brady was added to the injury report on Friday ahead of Sunday’s New England Patriots-Dallas Cowboys game, but Pats fans should not be too worried about the quarterbacks’ status.
Brady is listed as questionable due to his elbow. NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport says the quarterback is expected to play and just managing his elbow and taking care of it.
#Patriots QB Tom Brady, who was listed as questionable on the injury report, is expected to play, source said. More managing the elbow and taking care of it than anything.

It would have been a huge surprise if Brady were not set to play in the game. Brady has not missed a regular season game due to injury since tearing his ACL in 2008. If he were set to miss a game, it would have been due to a massive hit that fans likely would have seen, similar to what happened with Drew Brees earlier this season.
As it is, Brady seems pretty grouchy despite his team’s 9-1 record. That’s all part of the pursuit of greatness though.
