Since returning from his four-game suspension at the start of the season, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady has been fantastic and is well on his way to possibly his third NFL MVP award of his career.
His statistics would have been brilliant for a player that has played in every game this season, nevermind missing four. He has completed 145 of his 206 passing attempts for 1,915 yards, 16 touchdowns, and one interception, giving him a quarterback rating of 123.3.
However, problems could be on the horizon for him and Patriots if you dwell into this week's practice reports from Wednesday and Thursday.

According to Pro Football Talk: "Brady was held out of practice and listed with a knee injury on Wednesday and the same held on Thanksgiving as the Patriots went through another day of preparation for the Jets without Brady."
Not something New England fans wanted to hear right now as we edge closer to crunch time and the playoffs.
PFT's report also noted there hasn't been any word on his playing status yet, nor has Brady spoken to the media this week. Hopefully, more clarification on his status will come today with the official injury report.
The 11-time Pro Bowler is one victory away from 200 wins, which would tie him with former quarterback Peyton Manning for the most in NFL history. The assumption is that Brady will be able to play this Sunday against the New York Jets to try and get that win, but for now, we'll have to wait and see if that is the case.
Along with the reports that Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski is expected to sit this Sunday, it might not be a very good weekend for New England's offense.
