Tom Brady Appears At Super Bowl Send-Off
By Howard Ulman, AP Sports Writer
FOXBOROUGH (AP) ― Tom Brady returned. His boot didn't.
The Patriots quarterback reappeared with his teammates at a Super Bowl departure rally on a snowy Sunday morning without the protective boot on his right foot that caused a major stir last week.
One fan in the stands at the Gillette Stadium rally held a sign: BRADY- GIVE THE GIANTS THE `BOOT.
After returning to Foxborough on Wednesday from a trip to New York to be with supermodel girlfriend Gisele Bundchen, Brady wasn't seen by reporters and cameramen the next two days while they were allowed into the locker room and at practice.
There was no media availability Saturday, and Brady hadn't spoken in public since his news conference right after New England's 21-12 win over the San Diego Chargers in the AFC championship game the previous Sunday.
Last Monday, Brady was spotted wearing the boot outside Bundchen's home. Later that day and on Tuesday, he wasn't wearing it when photographed by the paparazzi.
The NFL MVP reportedly had a mild high ankle sprain. Teammates said they expect him to be ready for next Sunday's Super Bowl against the New York Giants in Glendale, Ariz.
Looks like the BOOT is gone, but the sprain is still there.
he said he's good to go... i for one believe him...
his bootie was gone but his booty was by his side.
She sure doesn't look like the MOMMY type...
neither does Bridget for that matter...
Brady has his ankle taped and I suspect he's still lame.
