Brady on knee injury: ‘I expect it to heal . . . I'm a pretty fast healer'


During a radio interview before Monday night's game between the Eagles and Packers, Tom Brady told Jim Gray of Westwood One that he doesn't anticipate his knee injury being a long-term issue.

"I expect it to heal," Brady said. "I'm a pretty fast healer. I hope I don’t have to deal with it much longer. I might be the fastest 39-year-old healer that you know."

Brady seemed relieved after Sunday's win over the Jets, calling it a "long week" due in part to all the treatment he received in order to get himself physically ready to play. On Monday morning he said he felt better than he did the previous Monday, after beating the 49ers. 

Brady completed 30 of 50 passes for 286 yards and two touchdowns at MetLife Stadium to pick up his 200th career victory, tying him with Peyton Manning for the NFL record.

"He was pretty spectacular and I played against him a lot," Brady said of Manning. "Nobody could appreciate what he did for as long as he did as much as I can appreciate that. I'm glad we're tied at this point, and I'm glad that I get a chance to keep going. Hopefully I can keep going for a lot longer."
