Patriots quarterback Tom Brady underwent surgery on his right foot today at Massachusetts General Hospital, a source familiar with Brady's plans confirmed.
Tom E. Curran of ComcastSportsNet reported that Brady was out of surgery around 4:30 p.m. The surgery was to repair a chronic stress fracture and included inserting a screw in the navicular bone, Curran reported.
Doctors familiar with that type of surgery, but who didn't perform the procedure on Brady, estimate that the quarterback will initially be in a walking boot for about six weeks. Their expectation was that Brady should be ready by the start of training camp, if not sooner.
