It’s now official, Patriots quarterback will have surgery on his left knee and miss the entire 2008 season.
The Patriots did not confirm if Brady does have a torn ACL in his left knee, but nevertheless Brady will be forced to hand over the reigns to Matt Cassel, who hasn’t started an official football game since 1999 (his senior season in High School). Cassel had the misfortune (or fortune depending how you look at it) of backing up Carson Palmer and then Matt Leinart at USC while Pete Carroll built a college football dynasty.
The Patriots officially released information of Brady’s injury Monday afternoon:
“After extensive tests this morning, it was revealed that New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady’s left knee, which was injured in the first quarter of yesterday’s game, will require surgery. He will be placed on injured reserve and will miss the remainder of the 2008 season.”
With Tom Brady out for the season, how many wins will the Pats get?
