The New England Patriots will be getting back Tom Brady in Week 5 when they face the Cleveland Browns. The star quarterback will be returning to play after a four-game suspension due to his involvement in the “Deflategate” controversy last year.
He’s not the only one returning with 13 other NFL players also making their season debut for their teams in Week 5.
According to Pro Football Rumors, which gathered the list of returning players for Thursday, Sunday or Monday Night Football or in Week 6 after a bye week, these players are expected to suit up for their teams:
Tom Brady (Quarterback), Rob Ninkovich (Defensive end) – New England Patriots vs. Cleveland Browns
Armonty Bryant (Defensive lineman) – Browns vs. Patriots (but was waived by
Cleveland earlier in the week)
Jalen Collins (Cornerback) – Atlanta Falcons vs. Denver Broncos
Aaron Colvin (Linebacker) – Jacksonville Jaguars – Bye week
Marcell Dareus (Defensive tackle), Seantrel Henderson (Tackle) – Buffalo Bills vs. Los Angeles Rams
Arthur Jones (Defensive end) – Indianapolis Colts vs. Chicago Bears
Demarcus Lawrence (Defensive end) – Dallas Cowboys vs. Cincinnati Bengals
Aaron Lynch (Linebacker) – San Francisco 49ers vs. Arizona Cardinals
Chris Scott (Guard) – Carolina Panthers vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Damion Square (Defensive lineman)- San Diego Chargers vs. Oakland Raiders
Zach Sterup (tackle) – Free agent
Darren Waller (Tight end) – Baltimore Ravens vs. Washington Redskins
Tom Brady will take over under center for a team that overachieved in the first four weeks. The Patriots are 3-1 and are looking like the team that are the favorites to win the Super Bowl.
With Tom Brady back, New England are expected to get the wins in their next three games, against the Browns, Bengals and Pittsburg Steelers.
