Knee issue should no longer be a concern for Tom Brady

While talking to reporters after Day 1 of OTAs, Bruce Arians was asked about how Brady’s knee was coming along. The quarterback who skipped the OTAs was seen running light drills with some of his teammates away from the team’s facility.

“He felt great yesterday,” Arians said. “I talked to him this morning and he said it’s the best he has felt.”

As for not attending OTAs and working out on their own instead, Arians said he was okay with it, but would prefer if they held it at the team’s facility. “I’d rather see them do it here, for their own protection.”

Brady, who will be 44 come the start of next season has so far enjoyed a career spanning over two decades in the league. A part of that longevity can be attributed to the star QB dodging serious injuries over the years.

The last major injury the QB had was back in 2008 when he tore his ACL in the opening game of the season. And it seems it is that same left knee that needed to go under the knife again.
