JUST IN: Tom Brady Injured, Limited On Practice Report

We don’t usually see Tom Brady on the injury report, because he promotes something called “pliability.” Well, the Patriots quarterback suffered a minor calf injury, and was limited in practice.

According to Karen Guregian from the Boston’s Herald, Brady’s injury isn’t something to worry about.

Fullback James Develin didn’t participate due to neck issues, and outside linebacker Shilique Calhoun didn’t participate, too.

Offensive lineman Caleb Benenoch was limited, and so were offensive tackle Marcus Cannon and tight end Matt LaCosse.

When it comes to pliability, Brady is pretty serious about it.

In his interview with Norah O’Donnell for CBS’ “Sunday Morning,” Brady talked about his pliable muscles.

“Some people want denser muscles,” he said. “As an athlete, as a quarterback, I don’t want them. I want to keep my muscles strong and active, but also pliable.”

“But everybody thinks they want muscles to be harder?” O’Donnell asked.

“I think that’s what we’ve been educated on. Well, I may argue something differently. I’ve seen really strong, physically-fit guys that, you know, would be the definition of health, that are the ones that are injured the most.

“If I can keep my muscles pliable, I can hopefully, you know, limit the intensity or limit the injury altogether, if I do absorb some of these forces.”

TB12 credits pliability with helping him prevent injuries. It works for everybody. “You know, everyone could do this. My parents can do it. My sisters can do it. I mean, I did pliability this morning on my son, whose leg was sore — he’s eight years old.

“When my elbow was in pain basically every day, Alex through his treatments (this was in 2004), he started lengthening and softening all the muscle in my forearm,” Brady said. “And it took away the tension in the muscle. And I was like, ‘God, that makes so much sense.'”

You can achieve pliability some serious band work. “Band work will, I would say, increase your strength while limiting the density of the muscle. The denser the muscle means the less pliable it is.”

The Patriots need Brady in his best shape. No injuries, please!
