Associated Press story:

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP)—Tom Brady’s(notes) throwing shoulder seems just fine.

The New England Patriots quarterback threw passes of up to 25 yards at practice Tuesday four days after suffering a sore shoulder when he was tackled in a game against the Washington Redskins. He threw hard passes from a shorter distance.

Coach Bill Belichick didn’t say if Brady would play against the New York Giants on Thursday night in the final exhibition game for both teams.

At first, Brady and backups Andrew Walter(notes) and Brian Hoyer took turns throwing to a Patriots staffer. Walter and Hoyer then went to the other end of the field, leaving Brady with the staffer and quarterbacks coach Bill O’Brien.

Then Brady threw 16 passes from different angles and speeds before lining up for an 11-on-11 drill.

So it doesn't seem like the shoulder injury will affect Brady's status for the season opener on the 14th.
