"This [Tom Brady listed as probable for Sunday] is likely a simple case of Bill Belichick showing his disdain for having to report all of his players' injuries. Knowing how Belichick operates, Brady's leg could fall off and he'd still be listed as "probable (shoulder)." Brady battled through the "shoulder" injury to post nearly 3,700 yards and 28 touchdowns in 2004, and so far he's managed to grit out the pain to throw for 316 yards per game in the first three games of 2005. His appearance on the injury list with the same malady for the 20th consecutive week is believed to be a modern-day NFL record. Pottsville Maroons' running back Hoot Flanagan once suffered from the same hangnail for a reported 25 straight games between 1925 and 1927, but that record is unsubstantiated."
