Tom Brady was reportedly unable to finish practice due to elbow pain
Tom Brady has been listed on the injury report numerous times throughout his career, but the future Hall of Famer has not missed a game due to injury since 2008. That theme is expected to continue against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday, but the latest ailment Brady is dealing with sounds like a legitimate one.
Brady is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game because of an elbow injury, and Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the 42-year-old was unable to finish practice on Friday due to his level of pain. He told teammates afterword that he will be fine.

It doesn’t seem like there is any real risk of Brady missing time, but the injury is noteworthy given how poorly he and the rest of New England’s offense have played. Brady has been openly irritated despite the team’s 9-1 record, though that has more to do with him being a perfectionist than anything.
Brady has made some inaccurate throws in recent weeks that most assume are due to his age and declining physical ability, but it’s possible the elbow issue has been a factor. It will certainly be worth monitoring.
