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 WEEI.com'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.
