Tom Brady suffered shoulder strain in Super Bowl

Mark J. Miller

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady has been getting a lot of grief since his team lost the Super Bowl on Sunday, but Pats fans might want to think back to how many Super Bowls their team had won before he appeared on the roster in 2000: zero.

The Boston Herald reports that Brady, who set a Super Bowl record this year for consecutive completions with 16, finished out Sunday's game with an aggravation of an already existing left shoulder injury (his non-throwing shoulder).

The injury came in the third quarter when New York Giants defensive end Justin Tuck sacked Brady, who left the field briefly while backup Brian Hoyer warmed up, the Herald notes.

The paper points out that Brady only completed seven of his final 15 passes of the game, "displaying uncharacteristic inaccuracy on several throws."
