Although it is currently unknown when Brady sustained the injury, Stroud also reported that the surgery is the result of a football-related injury although Brady did not appear on the Bucs’ final injury report ahead of Tampa Bay’s 31-9 victory over the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl LV.
Shortly after the initial report however, the Boston Globe’s Ben Volin reported that the surgery may be a little more serious than previously anticipated, but the extent remains unclear.

And as many pointed out, Brady was seen wearing a knee brace on his left leg at the Bucs’ celebratory boat parade on Wednesday. Pewter Report will continue to monitor and report on the situation as further details are revealed.
