Tom Brady in recovery from knee surgery ahead of June minicamp
TAMPA, Fla. (AP) – Tom Brady expects to be ready for June minicamp with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as he recovers from offseason knee surgery.
During a fundraiser for Bucs coach Bruce Arians’ foundation, Brady said he is aiming to be back on the field relatively soon, reported the Associated Press.
“I feel pretty good and I push myself pretty hard. … We we will see how things play out,” he said. “It is a long time between now and the beginning of the season. Just be smart about all these different things we have to do and fulfill. We all take a lot of pride in being ready to go and I am sure we will be.”
“I’m cool with it. It’s just part of what you deal with. Things come up. You deal with them the best way you can, with the best opportunity to improve. I’m definitely feeling a lot better than I did six or seven weeks ago.”
Minicamps are mandatory for players that are fit to participate, reported AP.
Arians said the quarterback’s recovery is progressing well and there’s a chance Brady could be ready to participate in minicamp if the Bucs have one.
“We’ve got a lot of hard-working guys. Guys will be very anxious to get together and get to work,” Brady said.
“As soon as I’m ready to go out and throw, that’ll be really important for me. That’s always been a part of my preparation, actually doing what my job is,” he added. “I try to teach the younger players it doesn’t matter going in and doing pullups, doing cross-fit games and scaling walls. What matters is being a good football player. And that’s doing your job and whatever that entails for you.”
