Tom Brady missed practice Tuesday as he had an MRI performed on his left shoulder. 

The MRI came back negative and Brady should be ready to practice this week and play Sunday against the Jets. 

Brady has taken a thunderous beating through five games. He's been sacked 16 times so far this season and taken countless hits on top of that. 

According to NBC Sports Boston's Mike Giardi, Brady suffered the injury during one of two Julius Peppers sacks in the Patriots' loss to Carolina on Oct. 1:
