Rest easy Pats fans.
Tom Brady, back on the New England Patriots Injury Report for his right shoulder, was listed Friday as "Probable'' to play Sunday against the Miami Dolphins.
That means Brady will play and start against Miami.
Brady appeared on the Injury Report for the first time this season on Thursday.
For those wondering, this is how the NFL breaks down its players on the Injury Report:
Out (definitely will not play)
Doubtful (at least 75 percent chance will not play)
Questionable (50-50 chance will not play)
Probable (Virtual certainty player will be available for normal duty)
DL Tommy Kelly (knee) and RB Leon Washington (ankle) are both out for Miami.
Patriots players still Questionable for the game Sunday include WR Danny Amendola, RB Brandon Bolden, OL Marcus Cannon, WR Julian Edelman, TE Michael Hoomanawanui, CB Aqib Talib, S Tavon Wilson.
Players considered probable include CB Kyle Arrington, Brady, TE Rob Gronkowski, DB Devin McCourty, DL Rob Ninkovich and WR Matthew Slater.
