Tom Brady Injures Ankle, Says He Will Be Fine


New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady limped noticeably after the team’s season-ending 20-10 loss to the Miami Dolphins, a result of taking a big hit from defensive lineman Ndamukong Suh early in the second quarter. “I’m pretty sore,” Brady acknowledged after the game, “but it will be all right.” Brady required medical attention on the sideline after the hit, with the athletic training staff and medical staff re-taping his right ankle. He didn’t miss any time during the game, but the Patriots replaced him with backup Jimmy Garoppolo on their final drive with 1 minute, 56 seconds remaining when they were trailing 20-10.
