Tom Brady's answer when asked if he'll play vs Jets wasn't exactly convincing

On Friday, the New England Patriots announced that two key components of their offense would be listed as questionable for their week 12 game against the New York Jets; tight end Rob Gronkowski and quarterback Tom Brady.

While Gronkowski has been practising all week since missing last Sunday's victory vs the San Francisco 49ers, Brady only practised on Friday due to a knee injury, and even then he was a limited participant, adding worry to Patriots fans as to whether or not their franchise quarterback can play this weekend.

When he was asked by a reporter at the press conference on Friday, the 39-year-old gave a short and sweet response that isn't exactly convincing us.

He simply said, according to a tweet by Ryan Hannable of WEEI: "We'll see."

Not exactly ruling himself out, but he isn't stating he was just resting his knee up either.

According to, Patriots head coach Bill Belichick only elaborated on the topic a little bit further than Brady by saying: "We'll list Tom [Brady] on the injury report like we always do, like everybody else. Is that the answer you were hoping for? ... OK, good. I don't want to disappoint you."

The chances are that despite his knee injury, Brady will suit up and play against the Jets this Sunday. If not, we've already seen backup quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo play well during his absence while the two-time NFL MVP was suspended for the first four games of the season earlier this year.
