Tom Brady was spotted in New York yesterday sporting a walking cast on his right foot. He was photographed and videotaped en route to girlfriend Gisele‘s West Village apartment.

According to the Boston Herald, while appearing on WEEI in his weekly radio spot, Brady “didn’t dismiss the notion he had suffered some type of leg injury during Sunday’s AFC Championship win over the San Diego Chargers.” Via the Heraldbradyboot.jpg:

Brady was asked to respond to reports of an observer noticing that he was a little gimpy at one point during the game, and was examined by a doctor. He paused a bit before answering.

“Ah, you know, there’s always bumps and bruises. I’ll be ready for the Super Bowl,” Brady said, when asked point-blank if he had a leg injury. “I’m not worried about that. I’m not missing this one. I’d have to be on a stretcher to miss this one. There will be treatment this week. In games like this, you get a little nicked up. It’s nothing serious.”

The Patriots had no comment.

Understandably, the development has Patriot fans very nervous. The Herald points to three interceptions and several off-target throws from Brady on Sunday that could have been due to the injury. According to the report, “a closer look at Sunday’s game footage shows Brady at times appeared to be throwing off one foot, or not getting the proper help from his plant foot.”

The Herald points out that any sort of constriction on Brady’s mobility during the Super Bowl could prove costly against the Giants’ potent pass rush.

At this point, I’d urge Giants fans not to get their hopes up. Even the nigh-invulnerable Brady is allowed to have a bad game, and interceptions or not, the Pats still pulled off the victory and remain undefeated. There’s a good chance that the team is simply being cautious with their QB’s health – as they should be – and that Brady will be ready to go in two weeks’ time.
