Bill Belichick Bans Tom Brady's Trainer, Alex Guerrero, From Team Activities

It was rumored that there is a rift between Belichick and Guerrero, who no longer travels with the team after being a familiar sight on the Patriots' sidelines in their previous games.

Guerrero also has an office near the Patriots' locker room, but he is now only allowed to treat Brady at that location, according to the newspaper.

As Tom Brady and Bill Belichick battle toward a sixth Super Bowl championship, a rift may be growing between the future Hall-of-Fame quarterback and head coach.

"I don't have any comment on that other than to say Alex, it's been well-documented, has been a huge part of what I do".

Belichick: "I meet with all the players all the time".

According to the Globe, Guerrero began working with Patriots linebacker Willie McGinest more than 17 years ago, beginning his relationship with players on the team. There is a TB12 Sports Therapy Center just outside of Gillette Stadium.

Aviation Minister Sherif Fathi headed to Moscow on Thursday to meet with his Russian counterpart to finalize the agreement. The airliner crashed over the Sinai Peninsula early on October 31, 2015 killing all 224 people onboard.

Brady's bond with Guerrero became so strong that in 2010 he endorsed a beverage called Neurosafe that Guerrero's supplement company marketed as "a drink that protects your brain from the consequences of sports-related traumatic brain injury". He was sanctioned by federal regulators for falsely presenting himself as a medical doctor.

Even though the reporter rephrased the question, the exchange was already skidding off course.

Brady and several other players have trained and received treatment there since the center opened in 2013, according to the newspaper.

We can assume the ban has to do with the fact that Guerrero is full of sh*t (in the past he's gotten in troulbe with the FTC for claiming he can cure cancer and concussion), and the Patriots don't want to be sued because they are perceived as being affiliated with him.

But if there's one thing Belichick doesn't have much patience for (aside from losing), it's distractions plaguing his team.

For reasons that he has yet to disclose, Belichick this fall restricted some of Guerrero's special access to the team. Tom Brady and company can also clinch a first-round bye in the playoffs if they can beat the Buffalo Bills and see either the Pittsburgh Steelers or Jacksonville Jaguars lose in Week 16.
