It was reported Tom Brady played last season with a knee injury, but now we're finding out just how serious it was.
According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, Brady played through a fully torn MCL that ultimately required the 43-year-old to undergo surgery following the Super Bowl.
Brady acknowledged he played through an injury, but didn't get into how serious it was.
“It was an injury I dealt with really since last, you know, April, May,” Brady said in June. “I knew I would have to do something at the end of the year and happy I did it and it was probably something that certainly needed to be done and there was a great outcome so I’m very happy about that. I feel like there’s some things I’ll be able to do this year that I wasn’t able to do last year.”
The 43-year-old threw for 4,633 yards and 40 touchdowns last year.
