Patriots QB Brady to Play in the Pro Bowl Despite Foot Fracture

The foot fracture that has hampered Tom Brady is not going to cancel his trip to Hawaii for the Pro Bowl.

Monique Walker of the Boston Globe reports that Brady plans to play in the game even after having the foot issues. Brady was elected the AFC starter at quarterback for the Pro Bowl with Philip Rivers and Peyton Manning to back him up.

Brady was hampered by a stress fracture in his foot that occasionally produced symptoms throughout the season, multiple sources have confirmed. The foot is not completely healed, but it did not affect Brady in Sunday’s 28-21 loss against the New York Jets. The information confirms a report by’s Tom Curran earlier today that Brady has been dealing with a chronic foot injury that “predates the 2010 season.”

Rest is considered the best prescription for the ailment, but doctors are expected to gather in the next couple of days to see if anything else can be done.
