The New England Patriots are 18-0, and one Super Bowl victory away from what many thought to be impossible – a historic, perfect season.
But has their leader come up lame?
Photographs and video from TMZ show Tom Brady wearing what appears to be a walking cast while in New York yesterday. The Boston Herald reported that Brady – flowers in hand – was visiting his girlfriend, Gisele Bundchen.
Clearly wearing a cast in this photo, Tom Brady did not deny that he suffered an injury during Sunday’s AFC Championship Game victory over San Diego.
“You know, there’s always bumps and bruises. I’ll be ready for the Super Bowl,” Brady said in an interview with a Boston radio station.
“I’m not worried about that. I’m not missing this one. I would 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.”
Maybe some relaxation with Gisele Bundchen will help Brady recover in time for the Patriots’ Super Bowl matchup against the New York Giants February 3.
As for his adversary in that game?
Giants quarterback Eli Manning was probably spending time with his significant other (fiancee Abby McGrew). We don’t have any pics, though, sadly.
