Andrews: Good prognosis for Brady’s knee
|02.25.09 at 6:03 pm ET|
Dr. James Andrews, surgeon for some of the top athletes in the world, said yesterday he believes the chances are good for a full recovery for Patriots quarterback Tom Brady in his comeback from a 2008 knee injury.
Andrews said the key was the fact that doctors were aggressive in finding and treating the infection after his operation, and added that preventing Brady’s infection was nearly impossible, no matter how good the doctors are. Andrews, who did not perform the surgery on Brady, was speaking as part of a medical panel in Las Vegas.
Brady suffered a left knee injury in the 2008 season-opener against the Chiefs, and sat out the rest of season. He recently told reporters that his rehab was progressing well. “I’m feeling great. I’m feeling really good,” he told reporters at a charity event in Allston earlier this month. “Everything is progressing just as I expected.”
