Tom Brady left practice early today after injuring his left knee - the same one that was surgically repaired after he was hurt the first game of the 2008 season. But Patriots president Jonathan Kraft, son of team owner Robert Kraft, expressed some cautious optimism during a radio interview shortly after Brady was injured. 

"I don't believe it's serious, but I don't know," Kraft said on the Felger and Mazz show on 98.8 The Sports Hub. 

Of course, the "I don't know" part is the part that troubles Patriots fans, because anything other than Brady returning shortly to full health will be a colossal bummer for a team with legitimate hopes of going to the Super Bowl. Of course, those hopes are only legitimate if Brady is the quarterback.
