Competing blog posts tonight say Tom Brady is not seriously hurt but will be held from this Thursday’s final preseason game with the Giants.

Chris Gasper, Mike Reiss and Ian Rapoport went at all angles of the injury today, from Reiss’s detailed breakdown of the play to Belichick’s typically evasive conference call to Rapoport goofy Encyclopedia Britannica clip art and link to comments from Neal ElAttrache. Then, the competing – but complimentary – entries tonight.

It’s good news. I think. Who knows, until he’s throwing with no problem? Hopefully, he’ll be doing just that a week from Wednesday at the latest.

Then we can go back to fretting about his knee.
