Tom Brady gives update on injured right elbow


Following Sunday's loss to the Chiefs, Tom Brady stepped to the podium with an ice wrap on his right elbow after taking a big hit in the game. The quarterback said he would be on the injury report this week, but ready to go against the Bengals.

Brady was right as he's been listed as a full participant with a right elbow injury in the two sessions this week, but speaking with Jim Gray on Westwood One Radio Thursday night, the 42-year-old offered a positive update.

“It’s responded well," he said. "I’ve gotten a lot of extra treatment with Alex (Guerrero), my body coach. It’s been good to be out there the last couple days participating and doing everything I can do. Any time you come off a tough loss you want to get back out on the practice field to try and improve with your teammates. I am feeling good. It’s Week 15, everyone is dealing with a couple bumps and bruises at this point, some worse than that. I am very fortunate to be out there getting ready to go for a competitive game in Cincinnati on Sunday.”

The Patriots will enter the game at 10-3 and need wins in their final three games to secure the No. 2 seed in the AFC playoffs.

After the Bengals game, the Patriots close the year with home games against the Bills and Dolphins.
