Brady Aggravated Injured Shoulder in Super Bowl

After Tom Brady was sacked in the third quarter of Super Bowl XLVI by Giants DL Justin Tuck, he got up slowly and headed to the bench, where he was surrounded by doctors.

Backup Brian Hoyer began to throw, though Brady ended up not missing a snap. After that Brady was 7 of his last 17, making one think the hit affected him.

According to the Boston Herald, Brady landed hard on his left shoulder, aggravating the sprain from earlier in the season. The key word is “sprain.” This is the same injury that forced him to miss a practice during the AFC Championship week, an ailment he needed to manage. The aggravation didn’t lead to major injury, though, and Brady did not need to come out of the game for treatment. It also is not believed to be the kind of injury that will need to be dealt with much in the offseason.

Hoyer remarked, “I don’t know if I’ll ever meet someone as tough as he is.”
