    Last I heard, Brady was scheduled for an MRI in the morning. Yet PFW, and Yahoo are posting his ACL is torn and he is done for the year?

    My guess is these azzhole writers are trying to pull hits for their articles/websites and not worrying if they are wrong, a la Boston Herald. The have nothing to lose if they lie. If he has a sprain, and is out 2-4 weeks, they can easily deflect any flak they may get.

    Holding out for good news,

    It's amazing isn't it. He didn't even get hit in a position nor did his knee move in a way such that it would indicate ACL, but leave it to the idiot media to just go with whatever will get the most hits.

    If it's an ACL, I think the trainers and medical staff would probably know right away from some basic tests. I don't think they'd have to wait for the MRI to be sure.

    They would know if it was an ACL injury, but they would still do an MRI to confirm and ascertain the extent of the injury, to see if there is any other damage to the knee (such as meniscus tearing), and to act as a roadmap for the surgeon.

    Just like the friggin weatherman. Predict the worse. If you are wrong, nobody cares because it's sunny. If you are right, well that's why you are the expert.

    Crossing my fingers here.

    Well yea the trainers probably have a broad idea of what is hurt like ACL, MCl etc... I doubt that it can be 100% confirmed or that it was leaked though.

    Hopefully it's not as bad as it seems.

    if they knew it was an ACL tear then why did they let him walk on his own into the lockerroom?

    Excatly, and if the staff knew the injury was an ACL tear how could they have let him walk of the field. The first aid in a suspected ACL tear is to fix the leg in a straight position with a brace. And cart the guy off the field. Why wouldn't the medical staff call for any of that????

    They know. The Pats aren't saying anything but they had the results of the MRI before the Pats finished their next drive. Trust me on that one.

    I think the player did hit him laterally and caused either an ACL or MCL injury or possibly both. At that point it doesn't matter much whether they cart him off the field or not... he's getting surgery sooner or later.

    Tom Brady is going to walk off the field if he possibly can under the Patriot's philosophy of concealing the injury status of players.

    Pretending this is a media smoke screen makes me feel better.

    ....nevermind... I just realized how ridiculous that sounds... I'm sad again.

    Guys.... I know we are all hoping for the best. But after seeing "the hit" live today from Gillete, I'm accepting the fact that Brady probably tore his acl or mcl.
