It was reported earlier today that Brady received a precautionary X-Ray on his non-throwing shoulder shortly after the Patriots come from behind victory over the Miami Dolphins this weekend. It is believed that the X-Ray came back negative. Brady appeared to injure the shoulder after an awkward fall on a quarterback sneak.

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.
