tom brady knee injury

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady sustained an injury to his left knee in the first quarter of the season opener against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday.

The two time Super Bowl MVP was dropping back for a deep pass to Randy Moss when he was tackled by Chiefs safety Brandon Pollard.  Pollard hit Brady's left leg causing it to buckle under him.

Brady, who who hadn't played in the preseason because of an injury to his right ankle, was helped off the field, limping down the stairs to the dressing room.

Backup quarterback Matt Cassel led the Patriots to a 17-10 victory over the Chiefs. The Patriots announced that Brady's return is questionable, opening the door for Cassel to have his first real turn at the position.
