Back in brace, Brady’s knee is OK after sprain
“I don’t want to make a big fuss about it,” he said, “but at that time, I didn’t have too much of a choice, so you just roll with it. It wasn’t my decision.”
When he returned to practice last Thursday, he was wearing the black brace with silver hinges that he also had on Monday.
Not that he enjoys it.
“Sometimes when you wear the brace a lot then you get used to wearing the brace,” Brady said. “I like to keep a nice strong leg. If it wasn’t strong, then something bad would have happened.”
If it did, the Patriots would have been in trouble.
Second-string quarterback Ryan Mallett has been inconsistent in the two exhibition games with 21 completions in 38 attempts for 234 yards and one touchdown. Third-stringer Tim Tebow has been much worse with five completions in 19 attempts for 54 yards and one interception, although he has gained 61 yards on 10 rushes.
Both have a long way to go. Brady isn’t where he wants to be either.
“I always feel like I can do more and prepare more and study more and work more, get better footwork and throwing mechanics and timing,” he said. “So as much time as I can get, I’ll take.”
Luckily for him, his knee injury took away only about an hour of his practice last Wednesday.
Now that he’s wearing the brace, his knee has better protection.
“I had it today,” Brady said. “So everyone was very pleased.”
Kraft is one of them.
“He wasn’t panicked,” Brady said. “He’s never very panicked. He’s always very composed.”
