Blog Photo - Tom Brady day-to-day with knee injuryOver the past decade, the New England Patriots have generally gone as quarterback Tom Brady has gone. That may be even more true in 2013, as Brady looks to have less help around him than he has over the past few years. Therefore, it is easy to understand why seeing the future Hall of Fame quarterback limp off the field could take the air from the lungs of both teammates and fans.

Brady injured his left knee on Monday after it was rolled up on by left tackle Nate Solder. Brady stayed in for a few more plays, but then left practice early because of the ailment. According to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com, Brady's Patriot teammates were "real down" and "very scared" after their star signal caller left the practice field.

It wasn't just the Patriots who panicked - online sportsbook Bovada suspended odds for the Super Bowl, AFC, and AFC East after Brady's injury.

Fortunately, it appears that the Patriots have dodged a bullet, as Brady is simply considered day-to-day and should be fine for the Patriots' third preseason game - the most important of the team's four exhibitions. That being said, he is unlikely to play in the Patriot's second preseason game, which is on Friday.

Brady's MRI came back clean, and USA Today has reported that Brady is dealing with a "minor sprain." Though the Patriots have yet to make an official announcement on their best player's status, fans (and apparently teammates) can begin to calm down.
