Super Bowl LV MVP and sophomore Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady underwent surgery in February to repair a knee issue.
According to CBS, Tom Brady opted for offseason surgery to repair what he considered a “pretty serious” knee problem. The injury was not addressed in the Buccaneers’ injury report during the regular season, but it ailed the quarterback for weeks after the 2020-2021 season came to an end.
The procedure was considered minor, and the age-defying quarterback should be back on the field sooner than later.
Buccaneers head coach Bruce Arians spoke about it and assured reporters that Brady would be ready to start throwing next week.
“I told him to take it easy,” commented Arians when asked about the quarterback’s preparation ahead of minicamp. Arians acknowledged that Brady’s first priority is to get “his arm ready” after resting since his procedure in mid-February, not long after the Super Bowl win.
Seen wearing a knee sleeve during the Buccaneers’ Super Bowl celebration, the six-time champion continues to take measures so that he can play a healthy, full season at the age of 43. Brady will be 44 going into his 22nd season.
