New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is on the Week 4 injury report with a calf issue, but he doesn't sound too worried about it.

“Football is a contact sport. I wouldn’t say I’m a spring chicken anymore," Brady told reporters after Wednesday's practice. "I’m trying to just feel as great as I can and we’ll see how it goes tomorrow. But I feel pretty good.”

The Patriots play the Bills at New Era Field on Sunday, where Brady has more wins since 2001 than any Buffalo quarterback.

Brady was on last week's Wednesday and Thursday injury reports with a calf ailment, too, but he was removed for Friday's report -- the last one before the Patriots played the New York Jets on Sunday.

The 42-year-old quarterback has played all but one drive this season despite the Patriots cruising to three blowout wins. That lone drive came in Week 3 against the New York Jets when rookie quarterback Jarrett Stidham made his NFL debut in the fourth quarter. Stidham threw a pick-6 on his fourth attempt, and Brady went back in the game on the Patriots' next drive and finished the game.

The Patriots also added another quarterback to their roster Wednesday by signing Cody Kessler. He likely will take the open roster spot created when fullback James Develin (neck) was placed on injured reserve.
