Brady limps off at Patriots practice

FOXBOROUGH — New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady limped off the practice field yesterday after appearing to hurt his left knee when he was hit after throwing a pass.

Club president Jonathan Kraft told WBZ-FM that he made a call to check on Brady’s condition and it “hopefully did not appear to be that bad.”

Brady tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee in the 2008 season opener and missed the rest of the season.

Brady had left tackle Nate Solder pushed into him by Tampa Bay defensive end Adrian Clayborn during a joint practice with the Buccaneers.

The contact came after Brady threw a long incompletion down the right sideline toward rookie Aaron Dobson about midway through the session.

The two-time league MVP rocked backward on the ground and held his left knee. He went to the sideline then returned for a few more plays before talking with coach Bill Belichick and leaving the field for good.

He was met by a member of the team’s athletic training staff and walked to the adjacent indoor practice facility.

After Brady left the field yesterday, Ryan Mallett played with the first offensive unit and Tim Tebow played with the second team.

Mallett threw an interception soon after taking over. In his first series after Brady left, Tebow completed three of seven passes.
