Boston Herald: Doctors are so concerned about containing the
infection in Tom Brady's left knee they have performed three
procedures in an attempt to eradicate it, according to a source
familiar with the Patriots quarterback's travails on the West
Coast. While Brady acknowledged on his Web site that he had one
arthroscopic procedure done to "clean and to test the wound" last
Wednesday, the Herald has learned there have been two additional
procedures performed since that time, with the same goal in mind.
According to the source, the fear is the patellar tendon graft
used to replace Brady's anterior cruciate ligament is in danger of
becoming compromised. Should that occur, the entire ACL
reconstruction would have to be removed and redone from scratch.
That would push back his rehab and recovery period, which in turn,
could delay his return to the field.
