NEW YORK (TICKER) —New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady’s recovery from knee surgery is well behind schedule - to the point it may endanger his 2009 season, according to a report on NBCSports.com.

Brady suffered a torn ACL and MCL in Week One against the Kansas City Chiefs, and his recovery has been hindered by an infection that set in following his initial surgery on October 6, according to the web site.

Citing a league source, NBCSports.com reported that Brady underwent six weeks of antibiotics and a second surgical procedure to clear the infection, but said the ACL and MCL remain “loose.”

Brady, the reigning NFL Most Valuable Player, also has had scar tissue build up in his knee, which does not allow the knee to have full mobility and prevents him from full-scale rehabilitation.

The source told the web site that Brady will need to get the scar tissue removed to build up strength in his quadriceps muscle, but even at that, the looseness in the ligament will not disappear without another surgery.

That could jeopardize the 2009 season for Brady, since doctors would not be able to perform another surgery so soon after the first operation, especially given the current condition of the knee.

Brady’s condition could have a major impact on the team’s dealings with backup quarterback Matt Cassel, who has performed admirably in his first season as a starter and is expected to command major dollars as a free agent in the offseason.

A two-time Super Bowl MVP, Brady threw for a single-season record 50 touchdowns in 2007.

AS A NON PATRIOT FAN, I SAY WOOHOO, AS A PERSON I SAY IM SORRY TOM, I WISH NO ILL WILL ON YOU I HOPE YOU DO MAKE A FULL RECOVERY.

I dont think the Patriots have any intention letting Matt Cassel just walk, he will either be signed to a deal then traded/kept or franchised kept/traded, but I think it would be cheaper to sign him to a deal then pay him the average of the top 5 QB salaries, which is what the franchise tag would be

what kind of deal would they sign him to? Bc I don't think Cassel would sign a 1 year contract when he could probably get a longer and more lucrative one out on the market. The only way he stays is if we give him at least a 2-3 year deal or franchise him, which IMO is more likely

Yeah, that's what I heard. Any reports that say he's missing the season are premature and inaccurate.

I think the spin factor is starting to go full swing, the NFLPA would throw a fit if we franchised Cassel in order to trade him. If we can sell the fact that we are worried about the health of Brady there wouldn't be any repercussions when Brady comes back healthy and Cassel is turned into a high draft pick.

I have no desire to find the link ATM, but Peter King reported that he's heard the Patriots are fueling the rumors a bit to drive up Cassel's trade value.
