Tom Brady Declares All Is Well, Nothing To See Here
So the Patriots put running back Shane Vereen on short-term IR yesterday, while reports circulated that wide receiver Danny Amendola is almost certain to not play Thursday against the Jets, and no ones really expecting tight end Rob Gronkowski quite yet.
You know who isnt bothered by any of that? Tom Brady.
The Patriots quarterback is either using Jedi mind tricks, or he genuinely believes theyre going to be OK with their current scarcity of skill players.
Weve got a lot of good players in the locker room, Brady said, via Zuri Berry of the Boston Globe. So when people are injured, thats why you have a deep roster, guys that youve got confidence in, that youve gained trust in. I certainly have that at the skill position.
