FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — No matter U.S. District Judge Richard M. Berman's ruling, the New England Patriots are prepared to move forward with or without star quarterback Tom Brady.
Brady's fate will be decided sometime in the next few days, but until then the Patriots will continue to operate like the four-time Super Bowl champion is going to be there or not.
"We're going about our business as usual," second-year quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo said before Tuesday's full-pads practice on the upper grass fields outside Gillette Stadium.
