FOXBORO - Tom Brady's foot felt better on Sunday in the AFC Divisional Playoff game against the Jets than it has in some time.
But two sources confirmed to CSNNE.com on Wednesday that Brady does indeed have an injury that could be termed a fracture. Later Wednesday night, the Boston Globe reported that Brady will have surgery on the foot, likely Thursday.
Brady's dealing with an ongoing stress fracture that predates the 2010 season. It's not so much an injury as a condition, which explains why he's not listed weekly on the injury report with a foot ailment.At pointsit flares up significantly. The week after the Patriots played Cleveland was one of those times. At that point, he was listed with a foot injury on the weekly report.But with rest and treatment over the weeks that followed, Brady's foot improved to the point that by the time he took the field against the Jets, he was virtually asymptomatic. One source said that to say Brady was impacted on Sunday would be "unjust."Tom E. Curran can be reached at tcurran@comcastsportsnet.com. Follow Tom on Twitter at http:twitter.comtomecurran
