Tom Brady remains in a boot

Tom Brady

The question of whether Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, who suddenly has become a union activist, will organize team practices during a lockout currently isn’t relevant, because a lockout has yet to begin.

It’s also not relevant because Brady is still sporting a walking boot after January surgery on his foot.

Per Ian Rapoport of the Boston Herald, Brady remains in a boot more than a month after having a stress fracture repaired.

As Rapoport points out, it’s not a huge deal.  But it definitely will delay Brady’s offseason workout timetable, regardless of where and how he may be working out.

    It’s not for medical purposes, Belichick told Brady to take the boot off the next time the Pats face the Jets, hopefully it will distract Rex Ryan long enough for the Patriots to get the early lead.

    Rex wants to kow is it a closed or open toe boot.

  3. nekelund says: Mar 6, 2011 10:39 PM

    Is it an UGG boot?

    He is currently working out in Rio at Carnival.

    Has anyone disapeared from a franchise history as fast as Drew Bledsoe?

  6. ndgarretjax says: Mar 6, 2011 10:51 PM

    What does Wes Welker have to say about that?

  7. sportsjustice says: Mar 6, 2011 10:55 PM

    I wonder how fast Brady could’ve healed if Mrs. Rex Ryan had been taking care of those feet?

  8. vicktator says: Mar 6, 2011 10:58 PM

    was it an ugg boot?

  9. jackfactor says: Mar 6, 2011 11:04 PM

    …and it is driving Rex Ryan crazy that he can’t see those toes yet!

  10. mr92687 says: Mar 6, 2011 11:21 PM

    How is this news? Brady’s fine. Anybody worried about an irrelevant injury report 6 1/2 months before the season even starts is crazy.

  11. jameswestphal says: Mar 6, 2011 11:27 PM

    And the Jets remain bereft of a Super Bowl win since 1969.

    I almost miss the pat’s that weren’t all hype..

    “Tiny Tom” Brady will hobble up to the witness stand with his cast and his crutch and tell the judge his tragic tale. Out of work, he has to stay at home (in a foreign country where he doesn’t speak the language) caring for the children, while his wife is forced to pose in revealing outfits for strangers, in order to make a living for the family.

    Mother Goose should move over, it’s probably pretty tight quarters in that boot.

  15. polegojim says: Mar 7, 2011 12:24 AM

    No Rush Tom – let it heal right and work back into a routine slowly.

  16. cassrangers says: Mar 7, 2011 12:50 AM

    …………….Next!!!

    As much as I hate Tom Brady and the pats I am curious about how he runs things…

    Being the elite QB that he is I wonder if he is the kinda guy, like Manning, who demands extra practice with his receivers or if he works on raw talent alone.

  18. roscoepcoaltrain86 says: Mar 7, 2011 1:35 AM

    Brady is probably just wearing the boot around town for sympathy and an excuse he wasn’t in the superbowl. He fooled a local slow brain reporter. Move on folks. Nothing to see here

  19. rjagz10 says: Mar 7, 2011 3:46 AM

    is it…..an UGG boot?

  20. tdbragg says: Mar 7, 2011 5:56 AM

    Who cares ? Not an issue .

  21. saberstud75 says: Mar 7, 2011 6:20 AM

    I wonder if the walking boot affects Brady’s ability to carry his supermodel-wife’s purse while they are out shopping.

    “Has anyone disapeared from a franchise history as fast as Drew Bledsoe?”

    Uhh, you do know he is the league mvp right?

  23. richmondhokie says: Mar 7, 2011 8:05 AM

    This isn’t exactly surprising. Bones take 6 weeks to heal. A stress fracture “repair” probably involved breaking the bone and setting it with a screw. He’ll be in a boot for at least 6 weeks and possibly 8. (I know – been there, done that)

  24. Kave Krew says: Mar 7, 2011 8:05 AM

    Was he still flinching at the airports with all those jets all around him?

    I hate people who act as if they know this person or even if they think this person will read what they wrote and for that matter I am sure you are telling this person something he does not already know. What a jagoff.

    I hope he does have his guys out to LA to work out. LA is where he is now in the offseason due to his older son.
    Some of us miss the days he was in Foxboro for all the offseason program stuff for sure. Last offseason he was there was the year before his son was born I think (06).

    MVP couldn’t get the ball in the end zone against a team that they crushed just weeks before, until the last minute of the 3rd quarter. Look at this guy’s playoff performance post spygate and he is average at best. League MVP coach of the year, offensive line of the year and they can’t get into the end zone against the JETS. Say what you will in their defense, the pats were exposed as frauds post spygate.

    Yeah, um, I just checked Brady’s record for 2007, 2009, and 2010 ….. May not have won a Super Bowl those three years (neither did 28 other teams) but they won a hell of a lot of games and Brady had two monumental seasons out of three of those years.

    You wish YOUR team were as big a fraud as New England., and you know it.

    Brady and the team haven’t had many great playoff games recently, I can’t argue that. BUT…to say the post cameragate Pats are frauds is laughable. I assume you’re a Jets fan…maybe not. But the Pats POST CAMERAGATE record does NOT equal fraud by any stretch. Pats have been to a SB, won 18 games that year on top of it, and missed the playoffs ONE time with an 11-5 record since the beginning of 07 when cameragate happened. Records of 18-1, 11-5, 10-6 and 14-2 with 3 playoff appearances is your definition of fraud you’d better be a GB, Indy, Pitt, NO or NYG fan because those are the only teams that have won a SB since the Pats have.

    Post spygate post season record is 4-5 before was 9-0. Look at Brady’s stats. Below average. Just like the Colts of old, great regular season and suck in the playoffs. Funny how things change with a level playing field. Their 18-dough season they had their best personnel and couldn’t finish the game. Brady was 30/48 266 1 0 After throwing for a record TD’s to throw one in the super bowl, is a joke. They were 12 point favorites with a QB rating of 82. He had a QB rating of 89 against the JETS. Against Baltimore last year he had a rating of 49.1. Frauds
