    The Boston Herald backs NBCSPorts.com's Tom Curran report that Tom Brady's spreading infection originated from an unexpected procedure on Brady's not-yet-healed MCL.

    While Dr. Neal ElAttrache was performing the ACL surgery, he discovered that the knee was still unstable because the MCL hadn't fully healed after only four weeks. ElAttrache decided to also repair the MCL, and that's the incision that became infected. Brady's knee has been flushed three times, and he's on heavy antibiotics to stave off the infection. The Boston Herald quoted a local specialist who believes it's likely that the infection will be eradicated and a second ACL surgery will not be necessary.

    Lets hope he doesnt need that 2nd operation on the ACL.

    So, the Herald is quoting Curran? Why do I find that suspicious....

    Honestly what I find most disturbing is that this information is even coming out.

    What happened to Tom's privacy?

    How does us knowing the gritty details change when he's going to come back?

    I just don't get the feeling that Tom is the one OKing these leaks.

    Not good for brady's health really ... too much antibiotics can be dangerous also as good bacteria get killed off also ... hopefully they got it this time.

    The only reason I said the Patriots should release a statement( they dont have to say what is wrong with Brady in statement) is this story will get a life of its own. Espn likes to make everything into big bad stories when the Pats are involved.

    Calm down it was a joke. Hence the smiley. I'm glad they released the statement they did.
