Tom Brady Expected To Be 'Fully Healed' For 2011 Season

Back on January 20, Tom Brady underwent foot surgery to repair a stress fracture in his right foot, but was expected to be ready in time for the 2011 season. And that is still the case according to's Christopher Price who cites a source "familiar with the situation," saying that Brady is expected to be "fully healed" for the upcoming campaign (assuming the lockout does not prevent it, of course). 

... [A] a source close to the situation says that a recent exam showed that the non-displaced fracture of his navicular bone is bridging, an indication that the necessary healing is occurring to permit a complete and healthy return to the field.

Brady began to appear on the weekly injury report with a "foot" injury following the Week 9 loss at Cleveland during the 2010 season, and remained probable with both a shoulder and foot injury for the remainder of the season. He routinely sat out Wednesday practices.
