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…
