Tom Brady returned to the practice field Wednesday as the Patriots continued their preparations for Sunday's game against the Jets.

According to Karen Kuregian of the Boston Herald, Brady first "dinged" his shoulder in New England's October 1 game against the Carolina Panthers.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports that Brady is not in danger of missing Sunday's game against the New York Jets. The question now is - will Brady miss any time from the injury, which originally occurred against the Panthers and was re-aggravated last Thursday against the Buccaneers?

According to NBC Sports, Brady suffered the injury during the Patriots loss to the Carolina Panthers on October 1.

Brady, who's 40 years old, certainly hasn't lost a step, and it'd be surprising if the injury to his non-throwing shoulder results in any on-field struggles.

According to National Football League stats, Brady has been sacked 16 times so far this season and hit 33 times.

Brady's been a hit a ton this season.

By comparison, in 16 regular season games last season, Patriots quarterbacks took just 24 sacks and were hit 73 times.

The Patriots travel to NY to face the Jets in Week 6 and will look to keep Gang Green's pass rushers at bay, as they look to avoid hits on their 40-year-old quarterback.
