Patriots QB Tom Brady will not be in attendance as the team kicks off OTAs on Monday, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. These are voluntary workouts, but Brady has showed up for them in years past. He's reportedly aiming to spending more time with his family this offseason and is presumably preparing for the 2018 campaign with trainer Alex Guerrero. This story figures to be overblown only because it's Brady. He's already committed to playing this year, and skipping May OTAs won't impact his performance.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport says Patriots QB Tom Brady's elbow injury is "a thing." We haven't heard much about the issue, but Brady has been listed on the injury report for the past 3 weeks now. "His practice time has been pretty limited as he nurses that elbow injury," Rapoport adds. Brady was sporting a huge wrap on the throwing elbow after Sunday's loss to the Chiefs. The 42-year-old has completed just 51.5% of his passes and averaged 5.4 yards per attempt over his last 4 games. Despite a plus matchup against the Bengals, Brady isn't a recommended QB1 for Week 15.

Patriots QB Tom Brady (elbow) is active for today’s game against the Cowboys. We’re not expecting the elbow to be an issue, but Brady is a weak QB1 play with his depleted WR corps.

Patriots QB Tom Brady (elbow) will play against the Cowboys today, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The team reportedly monitored Brady's throwing elbow over the weekend, but we didn't hear any concern about the issue beyond that. Brady seems safe to use as you normally would.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that Patriots QB Tom Brady is expected to play against the Cowboys on Sunday, despite being listed as questionable with a right elbow issue. "More managing the elbow and taking care of it than anything," Rapoport adds. It's worth noting that Brady posted an ugly 55.3% completion rate and 4.6 yards per attempt in last week's win over the Eagles. He's no better than a low-end QB1 for Week 12.

Patriots QB Tom Brady was added to the injury report on Friday with a right (throwing) elbow issue. He was limited in practice and is listed as questionable for this weekend's game against the Cowboys. We haven't heard anything to suggest that this is a real concern, but it's certainly worth keeping an eye on. We'll pass along any updates we get.
