Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady called his offseason knee surgery “pretty serious” and that his knee had bothered him for some time without revealing the specific nature of the injury.

Thursday brings word on that front. Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports that Brady had a partially torn medial collateral ligament. Brady said the injury first surfaced in the spring, but Stroud reports that the tear actually happened during his final season with New England.

Brady, who also dealt with an MCL sprain down the stretch of the 2018 season with the Patriots, never appeared on the injury report during the 2020 season. He had surgery to repair it in February after the Bucs beat the Chiefs in the Super Bowl.

Brady is expected to be ready to go when the Bucs open training camp later this month.

UPDATE 4:30 p.m. ET: Ian Rapoport of NFL Media followed up with a report that Brady’s MCL was actually fully torn.

  1. He should be fined 10 million. Tampa should be fined 100 million and Tampa should have to give up their next 3 drafts for not disclosing the injury. Right haters?

  2. course this means time to knock the pats of their first round pick in next years draft again huh folks … :S

    Yeah, why would anyone want an overachieving 6th round draft pick who outworks EVERYONE and wins consistently for over 20 years despite all odds.

  4. I won’t be surprised if he gets injured this season. He can have the best O-line ever constructed he will get hit and it will be interesting to see if his body will hold up.

  5. What is he, superman? I bet he’s got a big red S tattooed on his chest! Right Gisele?

    We’ve been taught Brady taught BB everything he knows and was the GM who drafted himself and he coached the team. lmao

    Hey, not bad for draft #199, huh? Go ask all these draftniks who gave the best draft value in the history of the draft.

    Probably a bad time to make this claim the day we find out he led his team to a Super Bowl win with a torn MCL.
