Brady to have treatment on right ankle
Patriots quarterback Tom Brady says he is heading for treatment on his right ankle after Miami pass rusher Ndamukong Suh landed on it in Sunday’s game.
Brady walked gingerly after the play. He remained in the game for a time, but backup Jimmy Garoppolo replaced him in the fourth quarter.
Brady said on his weekly radio appearance it’s just part of football to have pain after 17 weeks. The reigning Super Bowl MVP says he’s had much worse injuries than this.
The Patriots lost four of their last six games, twice blowing a chance to clinch home-field advantage through the AFC playoffs. They are off until Jan. 16, when they will play Cincinnati, Houston or Kansas City.
