BOSTON (AP) -- The Boston Herald reports that New England quarterback Tom Brady has undergone two more procedures to clean out infection on his surgically repaired knee. The newspaper says Brady is on a six-week course of intravenous antibiotics and will continue to have follow-up exams at the clinic in Los Angeles where he had the surgery.
Brady confirmed for the first time last weekend that he'd undergone two operations on his injured left knee. But the Herald, citing an unnamed source familiar with his treatment, says he's had two more since then because of infection. If the infection is not brought under control, he could need
more surgery -- possibly delaying his rehabilitation. Brady was injured in the first quarter of the season opener.
