What happened to the Patriots star quarterback during Wednesday's practice? What former Bucs player got into a scuffle with a current Buccaneer? Find out all that took place on Wednesday in the Bucs Camp News To Know.
Here is what you need to know about what happened in New England on Wednesday August 14:

The Buccaneers were on the Patriots practice field once again for their second of three joint practices with New England. Wednesday saw highs in the mid-70’s with gusty winds. Bucs DT Gerald McCoy when asked about the weather joked, that 63 degrees was much better than the 163 degrees in Tampa Bay.

• Wide receiver Mike Williams left the practice field with a team doctor. He would return to the sidelines later in the practice. 

No moves were announced Wednesday.
• During the first set of 11-on-11 drills, defensive end Da’Quan Bowers was only brought in on third downs. 

• There was a scrum that broke out during a punt session between Bucs cornerback Michael Adams and former Buccaneers cornerback Aqib Talib, according to Doug Kyed of NESN. Both players locked horns momentarily but did not escalate beyond each of them hitting the floor. According to Twitter reports, both were excused from practice after the incident. Head coach Greg Schiano on Monday told the media that no extra curricular activity would be tolerated.

“Last year it was great in that there was no nonsense and coach Belichick and I make it very clear to our teams there won't be any nonsense or we’re going to take it in and you're not going to practice, Schiano said. "We’re here to get better. Sometimes you hear stories of teams and it gets out-of-control. That's not going to happen.”

• New England quarterback Tom Brady left practice with an apparent leg injury. Initial reports out of New England state MRI exams on the All-Pro quarterback’s knee reveal a sprain. A person with knowledge of the injury said an MRI was negative and Brady was day-to-day with the left knee sprain.

Head coach Greg Schiano commented on the play.

"Well Coach Belichick and I we stress to our teams 'let them throw the football." Rush the passer, but go by him. Don't get around him. I can't tell you [about this situation], because I didn't see what happened, but I'll look at it on tape. I hope he's ok."

Clayborn was also asked about the play after Wednesday's practice.

“You always have to stay away from the quarterback. But I mean if you have a guy on their feet, you know on his heels, my instinct is to keep going. So that’s what I did.”

It was a quiet afternoon for the Bucs in terms of plays made. But the move by Adrian Clayborn that lead to the Tom Brady injury was a great football move. Clayborn bull-rushed Patriots left tackle Nate Solder into the backfield, causing Solder to fall back into Brady’s leg. The Iowa product simply overpowered the left tackle with no issues.

"The first day we were able to make some plays, get some things going. You go back, turn around overnight, come back and they're playing different. Playing different leverages, playing different things, playing tighter on their man. You definitely learn a lot about yourselves, a lot about just getting off, fighting through. Towards the end we needed to get things going in the [two minute] drill but [were] unable to do so. [Quarterback] Dan [Orlovsky] did a good job of that when he got in, but overall, this is what it's about. When things get hot, when [you are] tired towards the end of the game, end of practice, you really have to lock in, stay sharp, and be able to do your job." – QB Josh Freeman on the execution of the offense on Wednesday

• Tampa Bay will have their walk-throughs on Thursday afternoon before meeting for their matchup Friday night. The game will be broadcast nationally on FOX at 8 p.m.

    Preseason against last year's Super bowl champs and practice against the Patriots. Our guys should be taken to school not taking anyone to school. These are young players trying to come into their own. Let them learn from better players and become better players. Go Bucs!!

    Horse not sure wht you are trying to say? Who is Little? Think you meant Lavonte David? Did anyone say the selection of Brian Price was a bad Pick... Nope!! did anyone say the selsction of Arelious Benn was a bad pick... Nope. Did anyone say the selection of Da'Quan Bowers was a bad pick... No way. You have a considerable amount of sample data available. 32 Teams... Compare every teams draft and/or Free agent performance. Do some home work before you say one teams draft record is better than anothers. You act like the Patriots never missed on a Pick. Chad Jackson WR Fla drafted 2nd round was playing Arena ball 2 years late. All teams miss on picks.

    Deacon Blues; that's a good point. My focus is still on the Bucs. Yes, it was David who I meant to say. Look, I am not proposing gloom and doom here. Most of us go along with who is drafted and hope for the best. There should be some accountability here for Dominik. I praise him when does good like Martin and David as I had previously stated when they were drafted that we were reaching. I got that one wrong. I am not knowing of everything and I was just pointing out that Dominik first 3 years was not that good pertaining drafting in Rounds 1 & 2. I believe that this site is to hear other opinions. Thank you for your opinion.

    PR, is Bowers being outplayed by his backup (whoever that is)? The reports have been that he isn't producing as expected, but practicing in third downs only sounds like he is in jeopardy of loosing his starting position. Which is a lot worse than what I had thought.

    Lets look at Dominiks success story: 2009 The only person drafted remaining is Freeman; our No. 2 was traded for Winslow; 2010, our No. 2's were Price and Benn; 2011 ,our No. 2 was for Bowers. Since Schiano has been here 2012 and on our No. 2 picks have been very good Little, Banks. How about someone else give the Free Agency results since 2009?

    I agree with Schiano preventing any fighting with any of the Patriots. Although I think an exception should be made to allow Talib to get his *censored* kicked.

    Wow, you would of thought the world ended yesterday. Plus, I am shocked Aqib Talib was involved in a scrum.
