Patriots Upset With Tom Brady

Posted by Mike on October 23, 2008

Earlier today, it was reported in the Boston Herald that Tom Brady had to have three surgeries for his torn ACL. Now, ESPN is reporting that the New England Patriots are upset with Brady over his choice of doctor. The Patriots wanted Brady to have his surgery performed by the Dr. James Andrews who is the go to guy for sports injuries. He’s the best in the business, but Brady wanted to have his surgery done in California close to his home, so perhaps he could spend more time with his son. More from ESPN:

Doctors are aggressively fighting an infection in Tom Brady‘s surgically repaired left knee.

The Patriots, as an organization, are upset with the situation because they were clear that they wanted Brady’s surgery done under the direction of doctors of their choosing in Boston, sources told ESPN.

Instead, Brady opted to have the surgery in California by a doctor his family preferred, and now there are major problems. Brady was supposed to be back in New England by now, but a timeline for his return remains unclear.

Brady recently acknowledged on his Web site that doctors went in “to clean and to test the wound” on Oct. 15 because of the infection. The New England Patriots quarterback has had two more similar procedures since then.

If the infection is not brought under control, the patellar tendon graft used to replace Brady’s anterior cruciate ligament could become compromised. If that happens, he will have to undergo another surgery on the ACL. That would reset the clock on his rehabilitation
