Patriots Fans Breathe, Tom Brady’s Knee is Fine

Reports came out today that Tom Brady suffered a MCL sprain on the trick play against the Titans in week 10. By video, it does not appear that it was injured when Brady unathletically tripped over the 35 yd line, instead it appeared that when Titans LB Wesley Woodyard came in for the tackle he hit Brady’s left knee causing a valgus stress (causing it to bend inward). This is when he suffered his MCL injury. Since his leg was already up in the air, I suspect it was probably a grade I MCL injury. Brady was listed on the injury report following the Pats week 11 bye with a knee injury and was listed with that until week 15. He is now 100% and it should not be a worry heading into the playoff game against the Chargers.

My name is Eric Friedman and I'm originally from New York. I am a big New York sports fan including the Giants, Mets, Knicks, and Rangers. I played multiple sports in high school including baseball, basketball, and tennis. I went down south after high school and attended Wake Forest University, where I majored in health and exercise science and minored in Biology. I stayed for medical school and graduated from Wake Forest School of Medicine. Now, I am living in Baltimore where I work as an emergency medicine resident at the University of Maryland and Shock Trauma. I plan to go to sports medicine fellowship afterwards due to my love of sports and helping athletes get healthy and back on the field. I have worked at multiple sports medicine clinics and have published research about achilles tendon tears. I am on twitter @sportsinjuryMD
