New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, who had surgery Jan. 20 to repair a stress fracture in his right foot,
remains in a walking boot, according to the Boston Herald.
Brady, whose foot was placed in a boot at times during his All-Pro 2010 season,
is expected to be fully healed by the time training camp begins.
Myra Kraft, the wife of New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft and a hard-working philanthropist dedicated to
numerous causes, died Wednesday. She was 68.
She died Wednesday morning after a battle with cancer, the NFL team said in a statement.
"We are all heartbroken," the statement said, adding that the philanthropic community has "suffered a great loss."
Brady shook off a rare turnover to throw for a team-record 517 yards and four touchdowns, including a 99-yarder
to Wes Welker, and the New England Patriots started with a victory for the eighth consecutive season Monday night
by beating the Miami Dolphins 38-24.
Defensive end Jared Odrick picked off a deflected pass to set up a Miami touchdown and end Brady's NFL-record
streak of 358 passes without an interception.
Otherwise Brady and the reigning AFC East champions picked up where they left off last season, when he threw for
36 TDs and his team led the league in scoring.
New England totaled 622 yards, the most in franchise history and the most allowed by Miami. Brady's performance
overshadowed Miami's Chad Henne, who threw for a career-high 416 yards.
The 906 net yards passing by both teams was an NFL record.
"They made some plays on us," Brady said. "We made a few more than them."
Brady, who went 32 for 48, became the 11th quarterback to throw for at least 500 yards. Norm Van Brocklin set
the record of 554 yards in 1951.
Brady said. "We made a few more than them."
