Brady Out for Season

The New England Patriots' QB, Tom Brady, tore both the ACL and MCL in his left knee. The MCL typically needs at least 4-6 weeks to heal so Brady's ACL will not be reconstructed about a month later. After surgery, he will need about 9 months of rehabilitation and recovery, the Patriots' training camp for the 2009 season starts sometime in July, hopefully he can make that. So basically, Brady is out for the season.

With Brady out, Bill Belichick made some changes that he thought would be beneficial to the Patriots. Matt Gutierrez is now signed and could possibly be quarterbacking for New England this weekend against the Jets, plus punter Tom Malone is now joining the squad. Its only the 2nd week in the regular season so anything is possible in the upcoming games.
