Brady out for the year
I am deeply saddened by this news. I was hoping the Pats could repeat the perfect season (unlikely but hoping) or even better, win a Superbowl. All that dream has come to a crashing end as Tom Brady is done for the year.
I saw the highlights of the hit and it does not look good. Lets just hope they can make it into the playoffs with Brady recovering fast enough to make an appearance in that. We shall see.
New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is out for the season with a left knee injury that will require surgery.
The NFL's reigning MVP will be placed on injured reserve, the Patriots said Monday, one day after his knee was injured in the first quarter of a 17-10 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs.
A statement issued before coach Bill Belichick's news conference said Brady will have surgery, ending his 128-game starting streak, the third longest for a quarterback.
Brady left Sunday's game against Kansas City after he was hit by Chiefs safety Bernard Pollard. Brady was not available for comment, but reports circulated around the league that he had torn his anterior cruciate ligament.
