Tom Brady, 42, says age is the real reason that he & # 39; restricts & # 39; is listed for different trainings
Tom Brady is not injured – he just gets old.
After Thursday's training, the 42-year-old quarterback in New England Patriots was asked about his reduced practice load, which is often the sign of a nagging injury.
Brady, who limits the list of three of the last four practice reports with a calf injury like & # 39; , Patriots fans' fears were taken away by reminding everyone that he is a veteran of 20 NFL seasons.
& # 39; Football is a contact sport & # 39 ;, he told reporters. & # 39; I would no longer say that I am a spring chicken. I try to feel as good as possible and we will see how it goes (Friday). But I feel pretty good. & # 39;
The Patriots season is clearly dependent on the six-time Super Bowl champion, who previously said he hopes to play until he is 45.
Backup Jarrett Stidham, a rookie, saw his first game action to relieve Brady during Sunday's victory over the New York Jets, but was fired and later threw an interception that was sent back for a touchdown.
Although the Patriots usually have only two quarterbacks on the roster, the team signed a third this week in free agent Cody Kessler.
NFL teams are required to release practice reports, which state the participation level for each player on the grid. Brady is listed as & # 39; limited & # 39; for three of the last four training sessions
26-year-old Kessler had been in the Philadelphia Eagles training camp, but was demolished when the team tapped Nate Sudfeld and Josh McCown on backup starter Carson Wentz.
The sustainability of Brady has contributed to its success.
Outside of 2008, when he sustained a seasonal knee injury in the opener, he has been healthy enough since 2001 to play in almost every game.
He was suspended for the first four games of 2016 due to the notorious & # 39; deflategate & # 39; scandal, in which backup Jimmy Garoppolo distinguished himself as a budding starter.
The following season, however, Garoppolo was traded to San Francisco and since then the Patriots have been trying to consolidate second place on the depth chart.

Brady has credited his personal trainer, Alex Guerrero, for his longevity, and the two have recently opened the TB12 Performance Center near Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts.
Guerrero emphasizes the emphasis on strength training in favor of & # 39; flexibility & # 39; – adding muscle flexibility with the help of resistance bands.
& # 39; Flexibility is just a way to keep your muscles long and slim and soft, and it allows the joints in your body to move efficiently and correctly without straining your tendons or your structure, & # 39; Guerrero said Business insider in 2017.
Before Guerrero, Brady explained on his Facebook show in 2018, trainers were just putting his arm on the ice and telling him to stay out of practice when he was injured. But after a series of injuries in 2004 and 2005, Brady began working with Guerrero, who had previously trained Patriots, passing by Willie McGinest, and according to the future Hall of Famer he began to become healthier.
Brady explained that Guerrero is primarily focused on pliability, which Brady sees as & # 39; the elongating and soothing muscles to get them back in balance & # 39 ;.

& # 39; Throughout the years so many muscle contractions, or through all the training we do, have shortened our muscles, & # 39; Brady said, explaining that he and Guerrero are working to combat that wear.
Although Guerrero was favorably featured in the documentary, he was the source of some controversy over the 2017 season when he was allegedly banned from sideline and aircraft by head coach Bill Belichick.
Brady and Belichick largely avoided the subject publicly.
As reported by ESPN and The Boston Globe, Guerrero treated several Brady teammates, including tight end Rob Gronkowski and broad receiver Julian Edelman.
In 2015, the Globe reported that Patriots medical and training staff at Belichick had complained about the role of Guerrero, concerned about alternative treatments that often conflicted with their own methods. Guerrero & # 39; s medical background was reportedly also questioned.
And because Guerrero was equally critical about the Patriots' staff, young players were placed in a position to work with him and appease Brady or the team's staff, which was the clear preference of Belichick.
& # 39; Bill & # 39; s answer to everything is to lift more weights, & # 39; Brady said to teammates, ESPN said.
Some in the team reportedly felt that the characterization was inaccurate, given Belichick's focus on soft tissue science and its effect on injuries and a good diet.
Another problem was the claim that Brady and Guerrero knew their TB12 brand.
Although he has never become as big as other players, Tom Brady has come a long way since he was a skinny NFL hopeful during the draw combination in 2000. The Patriots took him in the sixth round
Boston Magazine previously referred to Guerrero as a seller of snake oil.
According to the Federal Trade Commission, Guerrero wrongly claimed to be a doctor and insisted that his products cure cancer and concussion.
He even claimed that he had made a dietary supplement that healed terminally ill patients affected by cancer, AIDS, multiple sclerosis, and Parkinson's disease.
Before he met trainer Alex Guerrero, Tom Brady explained on his Facebook show in 2018, trainers were just putting his arm on the ice and telling him to stay out of practice when he was injured. But after a series of injuries in 2004 and 2005, Brady started working with Guerrero, who emphasized weight training in favor of resistance bands
The product, called Supreme Greens, would cure all but eight of the 200 terminally ill patients enrolled in the study.
& # 39; This is just from quackery & # 39 ;, Barrie Cassileth, who holds a doctorate in medical sociology and founder of the Integrative Medicine Service from the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, told Boston Magazine.
The report revealed that Supreme Greens were never actually tested and that the supposed study never existed, as he later admitted.
According to Boston Magazine, Guerrero was told by the FTC that he should no longer refer to himself as a doctor. The publication also revealed that Guerrero & # 39; s degree in Chinese medicine came from a California college that no longer exists.
Brady's claims in his book & # 39; The TB12 method & # 39; are also questionable.
The quarterback of the Patriots franchise insisted that, despite being light-skinned, he did not get sunburn when he was in the habit of hydrating himself with nearly 300 grams of water a day.
& # 39; When I was growing up and playing outside in the sun, I was often burned by the sun, ”Brady wrote in the 300-page book. & # 39; After all, I was an Irish boy with a light skin color. Nowadays, even if I get enough sun, I won't get sunburn, thanks to the amount of water I drink. I always hydrate afterwards to prevent my skin from shedding.
& # 39; When I once told my sister, & # 39; the book continues, & # 39; she said, & # 39; do you mean i don't have to use all those moisturizers and facial products to make my skin look good? Do I have to drink as much water as you do? I think you should put you (stupid things with water drops) on the market as a beauty product. & # 39; I just laughed. & # 39;
Those & # 39; stupid things to drop water & # 39; his Brady & # 39; s & # 39; TB12 electrolyte drops & # 39 ;, which he encourages readers to use in their water. In fact, much of Brady & # 39; s book refers to his own line of health products.
