Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady will undergo minor knee surgery, according to multiple reports on Thursday.
Buccaneers coach Bruce Arians termed the upcoming procedure as a “clean up,” according to the Tampa Bay Times.
Brady was seen wearing a brace or sleeve on his left knee during the team’s Super Bowl victory parade on Wednesday.
Brady was never listed on Tampa Bay’s injury report during the postseason and it isn’t immediately known when he injured the knee.
According to ESPN, Brady has been planning to have the procedure for months.
The 43-year-old Brady earned his seventh Super Bowl ring last Sunday when Tampa Bay clobbered the Kansas City Chiefs 31-9. He threw three touchdowns while winning Super Bowl MVP honors for the fifth time.
