Two days after he caused a panic in New England, Tom Brady is apparently going to be on the field tonight.

According to Albert Breer of the NFL Network, the Patriots are expected to use all three quarterbacks tonight — Brady, Ryan Mallett and Tim Tebow — against the Buccaneers.

Brady was well enough to resume practice yesterday after taking a scary spill in Wednesday’s joint practice with the Bucs, though he was again wearing the knee brace he’s worn in games since his 2008 ACL tear.

Assume he’ll be wearing it tonight, and perhaps any time anyone’s near enough to breathe on him.
