If Brady was able to walk off the field on his own, how can he be out for the season? If he was unable to walk off the field on his own then yeah logically he might be out for the season. There are players who get carted off the field because trainers dont want to put anymore pressure on their legs. If it was a knee injury like the media states then Iam sure the trainers would not want any pressure to be put on his knees, so they might cart him off the field. The media just wants to hype the injury so I gives them a story to put out. He is last years MVP with 50+ TDs so it makes sense to hype up his story. If he was a QB on another team I dont think they would care as much, well maybe if he was a Peyton or Eli they might. Iam guessing he has a bruised knee, and will be out for sometime but not out for the season. Its pretty wierd and sad that a player would be out for the season when he was able to walk off the field on his own. If he has to get surgery done on his knees then yes I can see why they would put him out for the season, but if he is not getting surgery then Iam sure he will be back.
