FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is telling New England fans not to worry about the left shoulder injury that kept him out of practice earlier in the week.

Brady says he’ll be on the field Sunday to play the New York Jets in a fight for first place in the AFC East.

Brady reportedly went for an MRI on the left shoulder this week. But he says it’s just the typical bumps and bruises all players pick up this time of year.
