New England Patriots star quarterback Tom Brady had a precautionary X-Ray on his shoulder following the team’s comeback victory against the Miami Dolphins last week, according to ESPN.

The X-ray, which was reportedly performed to evaluate his non-throwing shoulder after an awkward fall on a quarterback sneak, came back negative. Brady, however, missed practice Wednesday for what was listed as “non-injury related reasons.”

The Patriots, 12-3, will play the Buffalo Bills this weekend in an attempt to lock up the No. 1 overall seed in the AFC. New England has won their last seven games in a row. Brady has thrown for 4897 yards and 36 touchdowns this season. He currently has a quarterback rating of 105.1.
