A media circus surrounded Patriots quarterback Tom Brady yesterday as he visited the West End House Boys & Girls Club to donate 1,000 laptops through the One Laptop Per Child program. More interesting, however, had to be Brady’s comments on his rehabilitation and expected return to football next season.
“I’m going through as if this was our offseason conditioning program. I’m lifting and running and focusing on strength and working on the game film and those types of things” Brady told the media.
Brady said he’s “doing everything” in his workouts and that “you wouldn’t know that I had surgery if you watched me.”
Brady underwent surgery on Oct. 6, and later contracted an infection. He said he is no longer being treated for anything related to the infection.
“Now it’s about trying to move on with the normal getting ready for the season,” Brady said. He believes he will be ready for the season opener the week of Sept. 10-14.
“There is no reason why I shouldn’t (be),” he said. “It’s just a matter of getting to that time. I wish it was right around the corner. I wish it was here now.”
