Monique Walker of the Boston Globe reported on Wednesday that Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is planning on playing in the Pro Bowl on January 30th in Hawaii, citing a source. 

Walker also reports that Brady was hampered by a stress fracture in his foot that occasionally produced symptoms throughout the season, again citing multiple sources.  According to Walker the foot is not completely healed, but it didn't affect Brady in Sunday's 28-21 loss against the New York Jets.

It's worth noting that Brady has in the past skipped some of his previous Pro Bowl opportunities, but with head coach Bill Belichick coaching this year's AFC squad, it appears that may be the reason he's planning on being there for this one.
