Tom Brady Could Miss 2009

Mike Petraglia of WEEI.com is reporting a renowned knee specialist says the news on Tom Brady’s infection may put his 2009 season in doubt.

It’s important to note that Dr. Tim Kremchek has not been involved in Brady’s surgery or recovery but says the news of continual infection problems is not a good sign.

“That’s not good,” Kremchek told WEEI.com. “I can tell you that much.”

Kremchek went on to say that he has seen in similar cases that the ACL repair will probably need to be removed and redone six weeks after.

“What will probably have to happen is that they will have to go in, remove everything–including the screws, everything—because everything has to be sterile and clean for (the repair) to take,” Kremchek said.

Kremchek said if that happens, next year would be in doubt and worst case scenario, it could cost Brady his career if it does not heal correctly.

Again, Kremchek has not seen Brady’s knee but is acknowledged as a specialist in the type of surgery performed on Brady. More as this develops…

  1. This is the nightmare scenario. How could the doctors screw it up so bad!?

    Hopefully the story’s totally overblown, but I’m starting to believe it could get worse…

  2. As I heard it, the MCL was not completely ready for the surgery (swelling not completely down), so they did the ACL and had to go back and do the MCL afterwards. That second incision is apparently where the infection is coming from. If that’s the case, this was a very poor decision. The protocol is to wait for all the swelling to go down and do this all at once.

  3. I said the day after he was injured that his carrer would be over. I knew the patriots would force the surgury and screw things up
