The Buccaneers are back in training camp, and certain players are back at the microphone, answering questions from reporters.

Quarterback Tom Brady has yet to be grilled about the torn MCL with which he played in 2020. Receiver Mike Evans was asked about it on Sunday.

I knew he was hurt, hurt pretty bad,” Evans said of Brady, via JoeBucsFan.com. “But you know, he’s as tough as you’re going to get. He was battling. I didn’t know it was torn. But it speaks to as tough as a player he really is.”

So is Brady any different now that it’s been repaired?

“I can’t see a difference, but he looks very springy and wiry right now,” Evans said.

Questions remain about the team’s failure to ever place Brady on the injury report. The NFL repeatedly has declined comment on the matter.

  1. When Belichick cheated he was punished. When the Bucs don’t report the injury to Brady all season nothing happens. No fair!

  2. The injury happened with Pats. Why would the Bucs be responsible for reporting it when the Pats didn’t report anything?

  3. How many times he has been hurt. Throughout his long career and they always find a way to theow it under the rug. Plain and simple is your hurt no matter how severe your put on that list according to nflpa agreement . Yet countless times he has been off that list when he should have been on it. But one thing is for sure players are not going to take refs orders of not landing on Tom. Maybe if he has to get put through concussion protocol Goodell wont beable to hide it.

  4. If Brady was still on the patriots the league would have suspended him for 4 games. Don’t think they’ll do that this time. Do you?
