    ESPN.com: Tom Brady upset Netflix cameo viewed as attack on Patriots owner Robert Kraft

    FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady explained his cameo appearance in the new Netflix comedy series "Living With Yourself," expressing disgust Saturday with those who thought he was taking a shot at owner Robert Kraft.

    The show stars actor Paul Rudd, who plays a depressed character that undergoes a spa treatment promising to make him a better person. In doing so, Rudd's character learns that he has been replaced by a new version of himself. The show switches back and forth between the new and old version of Rudd's character.

    In Brady's cameo, he is seen walking out of the "Top Happy Spa," which is located inside a strip mall.

    Yahoo! Sports: Patriots rule out Josh Gordon, top 2 TEs as Ben Watson's return looms

    Tom Brady's core of pass-catchers is going to look moderately different against the New York Jets than last week's group.

    The New England Patriots have ruled out wide receiver Josh Gordon (knee/ankle) as well as tight ends Matt LaCosse (knee) and Ryan Izzo (concussion) for Sunday's game. Gordon's absence comes after he appeared to twist his knee on Thursday against the New York Giants.

    Also questionable are receiver Julian Edelman (chest), Phillip Dorsett (hamstring), Gunner Olszewski (hamstring), running back Rex Burkhead (foot), and safety Patrick Chung (heel, chest). One or more of those players could be downgraded.

    Yahoo! Sports: Tom Brady has a spa parlor cameo in a Netflix comedy series. And no, we're not making this up

    Apparently, Tom Brady is a savage off the football field, too.

    In what might be the single most unbelievable trolling of an NFL owner in recent memory (maybe ever), the New England Patriots quarterback appears to have not-so-subtly parodied owner Robert Kraft's high-profile massage parlor scandal in a Netflix series released this month. Brady made a cameo appearance in Paul Rudd's comedy "Living With Yourself" -- where a middling Rudd upgrades his life by cloning the best possible version of himself at a seedy strip mall spa. We'll leave the critique of the series to the viewing audience and just stick with Brady's cameo, which to the knowledgable NFL fan is downright unbelievable.

    Boston.com: Tom Brady says cameo in Netflix series 'taken out of context'

    FOXBOROUGH -- Patriots quarterback Tom Brady says his cameo in the new Netflix series "Living With Yourself'' was taken out of context.

    "I think there's a lot of things that are taken out of context, that you choose to make a headline of as opposed to understanding what it's about,'' Brady said on Saturday afternoon at Gillette Stadium.

    Fielding questions at his locker, Brady grew increasingly irritated when pressed about his brief appearance in the eight-episode comedy series that was released Friday. In a scene circulating on social media, a smiling Brady walks out of what appears to be a strip mall massage parlor, "Top Happy Spa,'' before exchanging words with a potential customer in the parking lot.

    Boston.com: What Bill Belichick said about Monday night's game against the Jets

    The New York Jets earned one of the more impressive victories of the NFL season to date on Sunday, taking down the Dallas Cowboys, 24-22, at MetLife Stadium.

    Patriots head coach Bill Belichick took notice, and he began his weekly press conference Thursday with high praise for the Jets despite their 1-4 record.

    "We've had certainly plenty of time here to focus on the Jets, and very impressive win that they had last week against Dallas," Belichick said. "They played well in all three phases of the game. Had a lot of big plays offensively, and defensively as well.

    Boston.com: Ben Watson defends conservative Christian group following controversy over Drew Brees video

    Last week, New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees disavowed the Christian political organization Focus on the Family after facing backlash for appearing in a video supporting one of the socially conservative group's causes.

    On Monday, Patriots tight end Ben Watson went on Fox News to defend the group, as well as his former Saints teammate.

    Brees had recently recorded a video for "Bring Your Bible to School Day," an initiative sponsored by Focus on the Family. That sparked criticism last week from a local progressive magazine, which noted that the Colorado-based group is described as "one of the most well funded anti-LGBT organizations in the country" by the Human Rights Campaign, the country's largest LGBTQ advocacy group.

    Boston.com: What experts are predicting for Monday's Patriots-Jets game

    COMMENTARY

    It's been a little more than a week since the Patriots beat the New York Giants, 35-14, to move to 6-0 for the 2019 NFL season.

    Despite what you might have heard, no, they have not been eliminated from playoff contention.

    Based on the moaning and worry that ensued following a defensively dominant yet offensively challenged win over the Giants, one could have presumed the 6-0 that preceded the Patriots to be little more than a semordnilap (look it up). Tom Brady threw his first interception of the season, squeezed in between two sneaky scores on the ground.

    Pats Pulpit: Patriots practice update: Tight end Ryan Izzo evaluated for possible concussion

    The New England Patriots were back on the practice fields behind Gillette Stadium today for their second day of on-field preparation for their upcoming Monday night meeting with the New York Jets. While the same three players as yesterday -- wide receiver Josh Gordon (knee/ankle), tight end Matt LaCosse (knee), defensive end Michael Bennett (team suspension) -- were absent, a new name was added to the list of no-shows.

    During the first few minutes of the full-pads session that were open to members of the media, tight end Ryan Izzo was nowhere to be found.

    Fansided: Realistic trade targets for the New England Patriots

    With the trade deadline just 10 days away, it's time to start looking at who the Patriots' most viable trade options are. Belichick traditionally likes to wait until the last week to make a move in case of injuries that happen that may alter the position the teams needs to upgrade, but one thing we can all agree on is that the offense is the focus point for upgrades.

    We know that New England plans on brining N'Keal Harry off the IR if everything goes well in his practices leading up to his eligibility for games, but receiver may still be a target position for a trade.

    Boston.com: Jamie Collins showed off his acrobatic skills during practice

    Jamie Collins has been praised for his athleticism and his ability to powering through offenses like a force of nature. In six games, the Patriots' linebacker has made 30 tackles and leads the team in quarterback sacks (4.5), is second in interceptions (3) and is tied for most fumbles (2). He and the rest of the team's linebacker group have nicknamed themselves "the Boogeymen" for the havoc they're causing as a defensive unit.

    There's something else Collins can do, too, that shows he's a force of nature at 260-pounds: backflips and handstands. Collins showed off his athleticism during practice on Friday, nailing a handstand and walking on his hands while teammates warmed up around him.

    Pats Pulpit: Patriots vs. Jets Friday injury report: Josh Gordon, Matt LaCosse remain sidelined for New England

    The New England Patriots practiced Friday without four members of the active roster.

    Wide receiver Josh Gordon and tight end Matt LaCosse were again among those absent as preparations continued for Monday night's matchup with the New York Jets. Gordon, who is dealing with both knee and ankle ailments, has not practiced this week. LaCosse hasn't, either, due to a reported MCL sprain.

    Another Patriots target joined them on the second injury report.

    Here's an updated prognosis heading into the 8:15 p.m. ET kickoff at MetLife Stadium.

    DID NOT PARTICIPATE Patriots: WR Josh Gordon (knee/ankle), TE Matt LaCosse (knee), TE Ryan Izzo (concussion)
    Jets: RB Trenton Cannon (foot/ankle), TE Chris Herndon (hamstring), OT Kelvin Beachum (ankle), G Kelechi Osemele (shoulder), G Alex Lewis (neck), DE Henry Anderson (shoulder), LB Neville Hewitt (neck/knee), LB Albert McClellan (concussion), CB Darryl Roberts (ankle), S Rontez Miles (not injury related)

    Izzo is a new arrival on the Patriots' list of non-participants after practicing fully during Thursday's padded session.

    Pats Pulpit: Patriots fill their open roster spot, sign former Jets and Giants tight end Eric Tomlinson

    On Monday, the New England Patriots created an open spot on their 53-man roster by placing fullback Jakob Johnson on injured reserve because of a shoulder injury. The expectation at the time was that it would be used to re-sign Benjamin Watson -- an experienced player that would help bolster the depth at the tight end position with Matt LaCosse rehabbing from a knee injury suffered during last Thursday's game.

    The Patriots will indeed use Johnson's former roster spot on a tight end but it looks like the player in question will not be Watson, at least for now: according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, New England will sign free agent Eric Tomlinson.

    Boston.com: Patriots tight end Ryan Izzo likely out for Jets game

    FOXBOROUGH -- The Patriots tight end situation got a little more precarious Friday when Ryan Izzo missed practice after suffering a concussion during Thursday's full pads session.

    Izzo is the club's only tight end to play in all six games thus far and his likely absence from Monday night's game against the Jets at the Meadowlands means the Patriots will have two players at the position making their season debuts.

    Ben Watson missed the first four games because of a suspension for violating the league's policy on performance-enhancing drugs. The 14-year veteran has been released and re-signed over the last week but proclaimed himself ready to contribute.

    Fansided: New England Patriots vs New York Jets: What are notable injuries?

    It's important to keep NFL injuries in perspective. While it's never easy to see people get hurt doing anything, it's far more tolerable for football fans to stomach losing a minor contributor as compared to a major star.

    Usually teams are better off with as few names on their injury report as possible obviously - though you'd have to think the Kansas City Chiefs would trade at least 10-12 injured players for the one injured player they lost Thursday night (Patrick Mahomes). Quantity is important when discussing injuries, but it's also just as important to consider quality, positional significance, and overall depth along the roster for contextual purposes.
