The New England Patriots are holding their breath as quarterback Tom Brady went down with what’s believed to be a “minor” knee injury while participating today in a joint practice with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers:
Patriots QB Tom Brady knocked down during team work with Bucs and held his left knee. Limped off field but returned one play later.

After a few completions, Brady spoke with Bill Belichick and the trainers and was taken inside, leaving practice. — Rick Stroud (@NFLSTROUD) August 14, 2013
Tom Brady has left practice walking gingerly after apparently hurting his left knee. — Tom E. Curran (@tomecurran) August 14, 2013
For what it’s worth, Berj Najarian, Belichick’s right-hand man, doesn’t look concerned, hasn’t left field

Denver Broncos all-Pro linebacker Von Miller is in more hot-water with the NFL after he was arrested Sunday at the Centennial Gun Club for failing to answer to a warrant issued for him:
Officials said he was arrested for not appearing at his court hearing on a charge from last October when he was cited for careless driving, driving without a license and no proof of insurance. The arrest warrant was issued in January. There’s no word why he was not arrested sooner. Miller was booked and released on Sunday.
This is terrible timing for Miller, who is scheduled to meet with NFL officials tomorrow to formally appeal the 4-game suspension for allegedly violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy.
