Default Brady Embraces the Knife........Again

This is truly a sad situation for anyone, but very serious for a top-tier talented QB in his prime. The longer this situation smolders, the greater the implications for his time of return, his likelihood to return at all, and for that matter, even his return to normal comfortable every day functioning in life without football.

THREE SURGERIES AND COUNTING FOR BRADY INFECTION
Posted by Mike Florio on October 23, 2008, 8:28 a.m.

After we posted an item earlier this week regarding the potential consequences of an infection in the vicinity of a freshly-installed ACL, some accused us of sensationalizing the story of a surgery aimed at cleaning out Tom Brady’s surgically-repaired knee.

Even if we were (and we don’t think we were), the story has just gotten a lot more sensational.

Brady has had a total of three surgeries to deal with the infection in his knee.

One procedure was performed on October 15 to “clean and test the wound.” In the eight days since then, two more similar procedures have been performed.

Per the Boston Herald, doctors fear that the patellar tendon graft used to replace Brady’y ACL “is in danger of becoming compromised.” If that happens, then the current ACL would have to be removed, and a new ACL would have to be installed.

That’s precisely what happened to lacrosse star John Grant, when an infection in his elbow traveled to a four-year-old replacement ACL and required doctors to remove it. Grant will have to wait a total of four-to-12 months before a new ACL can be installed.

And so that’s why we remarked that Brady’s 2009 season (and, possibly, 2010) could be jeopardized. If the current ACL comes out, doctors will want to wait until the infection is completely gone before even considering whether to put a new one in. Even if the new ACL is installed in January, Brady will miss all of the offseason workouts, and could be hard-pressed to be ready for training camp.

Meanwhile, Brady reportedly is receiving antibiotics via IV, and will continue to do so for a total of six weeks.

Look, we regard these guys to be Supermen because of what we see them do on the field. But it sure sounds to us like Brady is dealing with a very serious health condition right now, and we hope that the doctors get the thing under control.

Looks like these docs didn't do their job. The Pats are peeved and this is definitely going to cause problems going into next season.
