Tom Brady limited in practice, questionable for Sunday vs. Bills

Friday October 10th, 2014

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was limited in practice Friday with an ankle injury and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Buffalo Bills, according to Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald

The 37-year-old Brady is coming off of a win over the Cincinnati Bengals that saw him throw for a season-high 292 yards and two touchdowns. 

MMQB: Tom Brady, Peyton Manning show classic form in Week 5

This season, Brady has completed 60.5 percent of his passes for 1,083 yards, six touchdowns and two interceptions in five games. 

Before the win over the Bengals Sunday, it was reported that personnel and coaching changes have led to tension between Brady and the New England coaching staff. The rift could reportedly lead to him finishing his career with another team. 

In Week 4, the Patriots lost 41-14 to the Chiefs on Monday Night Football. Brady threw two interceptions in that game and was replaced in the fourth quarter by rookie Jimmy Garoppolo

If Brady is unable to play Sunday, Garoppolo is his backup. The Patriots drafted the rookie in the second round of May's draft out of Eastern Illinois, and he threw his first NFL touchdown pass after replacing Brady against Kansas City.
