The Patriots claim that Tom Brady didn't leave Friday's preseason game because of a shoulder injury. Bill Belichick told the media that Brady left the game after taking a crushing hit from Albert Haynesworth because it was time for the reserves to enter the game. "I'm saying that we made the decision to play other quarterbacks in the Washington game because we wanted them to play," Belichick said in a conference call with reporters. "Tom had a desire to play, but we made a football decision to play other players because we needed to see them at that position and make an evaluation there. That's what I'm saying."
