FOXBORO -- If there was any concern about Tom Brady potentially not playing Sunday against the Jets, the 40-year-old ended that debate when he spoke Wednesday at Gillette Stadium.

“I’m good. I’m not worried about it," he said when he was asked about his injured left shoulder.

Added Brady: “I’ll be there Sunday. Don’t worry about that. I’ll be there.”

The quarterback reportedly is dealing with a sprained AC joint in his non-throwing shoulder suffered in Week 4 against the Panthers and then further injured last Thursday night against the Buccaneers.

Brady was asked if he is playing through pain?

“I think everybody does," he said. "There’s a lot of bumps and bruises over the course a year. I’m not concerned.”

Even though Brady received a MRI, it didn't concern him.

“Not for me. No," he said.

Bill Belichick had high praise for Brady's toughness earlier in the day.

"Tom’s as physically and mentally tough as any player I’ve coached," he said. "No doubt about that."

Sunday will be Brady's 241st career start in the regular season. He is one of 10 quarterbacks with at least 200 regular-season starts in a career.
