Patriots quarterback Tom Brady has posted a note on, saying that everything is looking good following his second knee surgery, which treated an infection that developed after his first knee surgery.
“Unfortunately, in the week following the surgery, I developed an infection,” Brady said on his web site. “The infection is very treatable and, through a course of antibiotics, it will be knocked out of my system. We were proactive with the infection and the doctors went in for a second procedure this past Wednesday to clean and to test the wound. The results of the tests have all been positive.”
It was reported last week that after the first surgery to repair a torn ACL, Brady needed a second surgery because an infection had developed.
Brady said he’s preparing for 2009, and that his doctor described his knee as “rock solid.”
