So scary! The New England Patriots feared for the worst when Tom hurt his left knee during practice on August 15. Thankfully, his injury is not being considered as serious.
Tom Brady Knee Injury — Sprain During Practice
Buccaneers defensive end Adrian Clayborn charged into Patriots left tackle Nate Solder, who then fell into Tom’s left leg as the quarterback was throwing the ball. All three players hit the ground, while Tom rocked back holding his knee.
As you can see in the video below, it’s certainly a scary thing to watch. We can’t imagine how Tom felt in that moment.
Tom, 36, did, however, get up and limp off the field on his own. And Gisele Bundchen’s husband took part in a few more plays before leaving the field for good.
An MRI on Tom’s knee showed no structural damage, according to USA Today, and Tom is said to have only suffered a mild sprain.
Tom Brady Is No Stranger To Leg Injuries
During the 2008 season opener, Tom tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee. Subsequently, he missed the rest of the season. We certainly hope he doesn’t suffer the same fate this time around.
Our thoughts go out to Tom during this difficult time.
