Patriots quarterback Tom Brady limped off the practice field in Foxboro Wednesday with an apparent knee injury, according to reports. ESPN reported early Wednesday night that Brady had undergone an MRI on his left knee and that the test came back negative. The report also said that Brady will be "day-to-day."
The injury alarmed thousands of Patriots fans on Twitter throughout Wednesday afternoon.
An hour or so after the injury a helicopter landed near where the Patriots were practicing, leading some to speculate that Brady's injury was severe. The helicopter apparently belonged to Patriots owner Robert Kraft, however, and was not used for any sort of injury transportation.
Brady tore the ACL in his left knee in the first game of the 2008 regular season against the Kansas City Chiefs and missed the rest of the season.
