The Tampa Bay Buccaneers took it on the chin Sunday night against the Kansas City Chiefs 41-31. In what was billed as a rematch of Super Bowl LV, was in reality a blowout and not nearly as close as the final score indicates.
Bucs’ quarterback Tom Brady appeared to injure his shoulder while scrambling late in the first half.

Following the game, Brady was asked about his shoulder,
“I’ll be all right, It’s football.”
The story changed on Brady’s “Let’s Go” podcast on Monday.
“My shoulder’s doing OK. You know, just some bumps and bruises, and I kind of took a hit there on it. Got some treatment today. Got a little bit last night. So I’m sure I’ll be fine in the end. Thank God for Alex (Guerrero), who’s always taking good care of me, and he?s put together and helped me through a lot of bumps and bruises over the years. So this week will be very similar to a lot of the other ones, just getting on the mend, getting back to practice and trying to improve and be ready to go for next week.”
NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport had this report on what he’s hearing about Brady’s shoulder.
“My understanding is Tom Brady is going to be okay. He has played with – I would say – similar injuries in the past. A little bit of a rotator cuff injury deal, not believed to be major. Not believed to be something that will limit him going forward. Just really something Tom Brady is going to have to keep an eye on.”
“Tom Brady is going to be okay. I would say, it’s nothing that will limit any of his accuracy or strength on his throws, or really anything long term.”
Brady has played through plenty of injuries in his illustrious career. Should this be cause for concern? Of course. Is it time to hit the panic button? Not yet, but when your only options to replace Brady are Blaine Gabbert and Kyle Trask, it’s worth keeping an eye on.
