Super Bowl XLII: Tom Brady's in a Boot...But Will Play

RealFootball365.comSenior Writer IJanuary 22, 2008

New England quarterback Tom Brady was photographed with a walking boot on his right foot in New York City on Monday.

Brady played it off on his weekly radio show on WEEI, saying, "Ah, you know, there's always bumps and bruises. I'll be ready for the Super Bowl. I'm not worried about that. I'm not missing this one. I'd have to be on a stretcher to miss this one. There will be treatment this week. In games like this, you get a little nicked up. It's nothing serious."

Commentary: Brady got knocked around a few times by the San Diego defense, but obviously he won't let the foot injury (a sprain?) keep him out of New England's fourth Super Bowl in seven years. He has two weeks to get ready.

Fantasy Football Impact: Most likely none.
