Patriots QB Tom Brady listed on Week 3 injury report with calf issue

Patriots QB Tom Brady listed on Week 3 injury report with calf issue

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady has made his first appearance on the team's injury report this season.

The Patriots and New York Jets have released their first injury reports ahead of Sunday's Week 3 matchup at Gillette Stadium, and the most notable name listed is Brady, who was limited in Wednesday's practice with a calf injury.

Brady has enjoyed a fantastic start to the season, throwing for 605 yards with five touchdowns and zero interceptions through the first two games. His inclusion on this injury report shouldn't sound any alarms, but it's certainly a situation worth monitoring throughout the week. Patriots right tackle Marcus Cannon also was limited Wednesday. He suffered a shoulder injury in New England's Week 1 win over the Pittsburgh Steelers and didn't play in Sunday's victory versus the Miami Dolphins.

The Jets roster has been ravaged by injuries of late, and their latest report reflects that. New York had 11 players who either didn't participate or were limited in Wednesday's practice. Starting quarterback Sam Darnold was among the Jets players who didn't practice. He is recovering from mono and won't play Sunday.

Here are the Wednesday injury reports for both teams.

N'Keal Harry brings up missed TD call again while adopting Patriots mantra

N'Keal Harry brings up missed TD call again while adopting Patriots mantra

N'Keal Harry has moved on from his non-touchdown Sunday.

Well, almost.

The New England Patriots wide receiver had a score taken away from him in fourth quarter the Kansas City Chiefs when the referees incorrectly ruled him out of bounds at the 3-yard line.

The Patriots had no challenges remaining at the time, so the play stood as called despite "everybody" thinking it was a touchdown, as an exasperated Harry explained to reporters after New England's 23-16 loss.

On Monday morning, the rookie wide receiver reminded everybody of this fact by tweeting photo evidence of him staying in bounds on the play.

While the photos may have been one last parting jab at the officials, Harry's caption is straight out of the Patriots' "moving on" playbook.

New England famously adopted "On To Cincinnati" as a mantra after a brutal loss to Kansas City in 2014, and it worked, as the team rallied to win a Super Bowl.

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady dusted off that rallying cry Monday morning, as well.

The 1-12 Bengals do offer New England the perfect bounce-back opportunity in Week 15, but Brady and Co. still need more from Harry if they want to get their offense back on track.

Tom Brady shares his side of beef with Chris Jones in Patriots-Chiefs

Tom Brady shares his side of beef with Chris Jones in Patriots-Chiefs

Chris Jones' respect for Tom Brady didn't stop him from getting all up in his grill Sunday.

The Chiefs defensive lineman had a heated exchange with the Patriots quarterback late in the second half after Kansas City's defense forced a New England incompletion on third down. (You can watch the exchange here.)

Jones later said he was trying to make Brady uncomfortable by getting into with the GOAT.

So, how did Brady feel about Jones' tactics?

"We were going at it for a little bit. He was pretty talkative out there, so I think there's a healthy rivalry," Brady told WEEI's "The Greg Hill Show" on Monday.

Brady wouldn't reveal what Jones said to him -- "definitely nothing that I can really repeat" -- but admitted he took Jones' bait by engaging with the boisterous defensive lineman.

"I typically don't try to make the d-linemen any more angry than they probably already are with me, because they're the ones that get paid to hit me," Brady joked. "So, I don't really give them any incentive typically, but I couldn't really resist at certain points."

Perhaps Brady's back-and-forth with Jones was his way of venting his frustration with the Patriots' offense, which is averaging just 17.6 points per game over its last five contests and looked anemic in Sunday's 23-16 loss to Kansas City.

Jones played some role in New England's struggles, recording a sack, a tackle-for-loss and a QB hit on Brady. But the 42-year-old quarterback believes the Patriots' offense has plenty of room for improvement, regardless of what defense it faces.

"I wish there was one magic thing that you could do and it would just change everything, but there's not," Brady said. "It really comes down to all of us, 11 as a unit, executing well."
