Nope, we won’t see Mr. Gisele Bundchen make an appearance this weekend at the AFC Conference Final, but instead he will spend time at the hospital, as Tom Brady’s foot surgery has reportedly been scheduled for Thursday. I guess this means he won’t be heading to Hawaii for the Pro Bowl on January 30th, eh?
I’m bummed that my Pats won’t be heading to the Super Bowl this year and their loss on Sunday was quite shocking, to say the least. It was a difficult game to watch. I’m still shaking my head wondering how the Jets managed to come away with a win, but oh well, such is life. Reports are now confirming that Tom Brady will undergo surgery on his right foot Thursday due to a stress fracture.
He evidently played all season long with the injury, and missed many of the Wednesday practices. What a trooper though, he didn’t miss any games and the Patriots ended their regular season 14-2. Brady had an incredible season this year – 36 TD’s, 3,900 yards and only four interceptions (a career best). In his MVP 2007 season – 50 TD’s, 4,806 yards and eight interceptions.
Dr. George Theodore, the team physician, will perform the surgery on Brady, scheduled at Massachusetts General Hospital on Thursday afternoon. There is a possibility that a screw may have to be inserted. Ouch!
So what’s the recovery time, you ask? According to Dr. Theodore, he ‘should be ready for training camp‘. Let’s keep our fingers crossed, shall we?
With news of Brady going under the knife, clearly he will be unable to play in the Pro Bowl on January 30th in Hawaii. Sources revealed that Matt Cassel of the Kansas City Chiefs has been tapped to replace Brady as QB.
While we hope for the best that Tom Brady’s foot surgery goes well, surely his gorgeous supermodel wife will be on hand to take care of her football stud. Let’s stay positive – we’ll see you at training camp Tom!
