Report: Brady has knee surgery in L.A.

October 09, 2008|From the Associated Press

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady had surgery on his left knee a month after a season-ending injury, according to a published report.

The Boston Globe reported Wednesday that the surgery was performed Monday in Los Angeles.

Patriots spokesman Stacey James declined to comment. Coach Bill Belichick refused comment during his regular news conference Wednesday at San Jose State, where the team is practicing for Sunday's game at San Diego.

A spokesperson for Dr. Neal S. ElAttrache, a Los Angeles orthopedist who the Globe said Brady had chosen to do the operation, said she could not comment because Brady had not given permission to discuss his case.

Dallas Cowboys cornerback Adam "Pacman" Jones was involved in a fight with one of his bodyguards, according to Dallas police, the night before attending a previously scheduled team meeting with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell.

No one was arrested and no one will be charged in connection with the fight late Tuesday night at The Joule, an upscale downtown hotel.

St. Louis Rams wide receiver Dane Looker will have additional tests designed to rule out an aneurysm after a CAT scan that cleared him from a concussion revealed a brain abnormality.

Dr. Matt Matava, a team physician, said Looker also would be examined today by a neurosurgical consultant.

Team medical personnel believe the abnormality is unrelated to the concussion Looker sustained against the Buffalo Bills on Sept. 28.

Because of Looker's condition, the Rams re-signed wide receiver Eddie Kennison after releasing him on Tuesday.

Jacksonville Jaguars receiver Matt Jones' cocaine charge will be heard in drug court rather than in the regular criminal system, allowing him to keep any conviction off his record.

Jones was to have gone on trial Friday for his July 10 arrest when a Fayetteville (Ark.) police officer saw him inside a car allegedly cutting up cocaine with a credit card.

The New Orleans Saints placed kicker Martin Gramatica on injured reserve and re-signed sixth-round draft pick Taylor Mehlhaff. Gramatica, who had been kicking with a sore groin, has missed four field goals in the last three games.

New York Jets safety Eric Smith will sit out Sunday's game against Cincinnati after the NFL denied his appeal of a one-game suspension and $50,000 fine for his helmet-to-helmet hit on Arizona's Anquan Boldin on Sept. 28.
