The Patriots are trying to lock up the AFC’s top seed in their regular season finale against the Dolphins in Miami on Sunday, but that may prove to be a more difficult task than you’d think if Tom Brady is injured. The Pats’ quarterback was banged up by a second quarter hit from Ndamukong Suh, who is notorious for dirty hits any time he gets the chance.
Suh hit Brady low after basically being clotheslined by a Patriots lineman, and Brady crumpled to the ground awkwardly. The quarterback got up but hobbled around favoring his right leg, then headed to the sideline to have the leg looked at by trainers. He came back in on the next drive, but we’ll have to see if the injury affects his play at all.
