As if the Patriots offense didn't have enough issues, now their signal-caller is dealing with two injuries, as well.
Tom Brady is dealing with a right elbow and toe injury, and has landed on the official report heading into their showdown against Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs.
Sure, Brady is unlikely to miss the game on Sunday night, as he's essentially the modern NFL ironman despite occasionally showing up on the Patriots' official injury designation per NFL rules. But TB12 is in this for the long haul, and he has bigger issues to deal with than a few bruises.
New England's receiving corps has been putrid the past few games, gaining little to no separation. It's gotten to the point that Brady himself, a future Hall of Famer and perhaps the best QB of all-time, is pleading with his teammates to get open.
Brady will say all the right things, but the Patriots look as beatable as ever heading into Week 14.
However, we've been through this before, and the Pats should remain betting favorites come playoff time despite Brady's injury and on-field question marks.
