Brady says sprained shoulder will be fine — PATRIOTS NOTEBOOK

Patriots' Tom Brady reportedly suffers AC joint sprain, not expected to miss time

New England Patriots and New York Jets played in 2016

The Jets seem to think so. The Jets have registered just seven sacks this season, the second worst mark in the NFL. Last year, Brady was sacked 15 times in 12 regular-season games.

So far this year, Brady has thrown for 1,702 yards and 11 touchdowns.

"I'll be there Sunday, don't worry about that", he told the media, via ESPN. "I'll be there". Then he got blasted on that same left shoulder several more times before the game ended.

No matter how you slice it, the numbers reveal a Patriots pass protection that has regressed significantly since last season's Super Bowl run.

After the hit in Tampa, Brady stayed down for a bit, wincing in pain.

Brady has been the source of Jets pain over the past two decades, which obviously has brewed plenty of resentment. In 2016, that figure was 3.4%.

What might be of more concern is the pace at which he is enduring sacks.

No other quarterback has accomplished as much team success as Brady, and we very well may never see it replicated in our lifetimes.

The quarterback missed practice Tuesday after having an MRI on his left shoulder, but he should be good to go Week 6.

Brady was hit 19 times and sacked nine times in three playoff games. He said he has learned to deal with the wear-and-tear over time. And it starts with stopping the run. "We all want to do a better job, we all want to play better". "We've been in some competitive games, and we're going keep fighting".

Williams and the rest of his defensive teammates understand the stakes if they allow New England to establish the run early. The only outlier will be when they face the Jets on Sunday.

At the same time, the Patriots have focused their offense on more vertical passing plays this year. Their 3.9 yards per attempt rank 22nd in the league.
