Tom Brady is arguably one of the most popular football players in the history of the sport. The quarterback has been taking time off in order to rehab a knee injury he suffered. Initially, it was believed that his injury was worse than expected, but that turned out to not be the case.
Brady had also previously revealed that his injured leg was feeling “pretty good” last month. Now it seems the Buccaneers’ quarterback recently went into detail regarding his injury while speaking on the Hodinkee Radio podcast. Brady revealed that he would often check his knee long before his surgery as it was “pretty serious”.
“Every week I was kind of tending to my knee, and I thought I would love to see a season where I can focus on some other strength stuff that I want to do, some other technique stuff where I’m not just focused on protecting my knee all the time.”
“I had a pretty serious knee surgery this offseason, which is the first surgery I’ve had in about 12 years. I was really interested to see how it was going to go, because last year it just took a lot.”
Last month, Brady revealed that he wasn’t given a 100% clearance to make his return to playing for the Buccaneers. However, he was optimistic that his leg will be fully recovered by the start of the 2021 season.
The latest season will begin in September, so Tom Brady has a good few months to fully heal his knee. We will keep you updated on his condition.
