New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady expects to be on the field in exhibition games next month -- his first action since injuring his knee in the 2008 regular season opener.
Back on the field for training camp this week, Brady admitted to some arm soreness as he works to get back into football shape.
"It feels pretty good, and then you come out and do four or five practices in a row and it doesn't feel as hot, so it's part of what training camp is about," he said. "The soreness becomes a part of the practices and you just have to do a good job of taking care of yourself. My arm was in really good shape coming in. It still feels like it's in good shape, so hopefully it stays that way."
Brady said he doesn't spend much time thinking about the repaired knee. He is wearing a brace during practices.
