Tom Brady was playing great Friday in the preseason game against the Washington Redskins.

However, the second quarter ended ominously. Albert Haynesworth fell on Brady and appeared to land with all his weight on Tom's throwing shoulder. Brady got up moving his arm, wrist, and shoulder. He left the game at this time.

Brady came back onto the field at the beginning of the second half, but quickly retired to the locker room.

He didn't address the press after the game. 

Belichick was so tight-lipped, he topped himself. When asked if Brady was hurt, he answered that Brady was banged up and bruised like every player would be.

Reporters asked what the team doctors had said. Belichick said Brady was never going to play the second half. There was zero natural flow to this conversation and no smiles on the Patriots' sideline.

A further question about the injury prompted Belichick to say, "Who?" as though he had no idea who the press was asking about.

It's 5:32 AM CST on Saturday here, and no new information. Many expressed concern when Matt Cassel was traded.

If Brady goes out, or has an injury similar to Brett Favre's last year, what happens with the Patriots?
