2007 NFL MVP Tom Brady suffers a knee injury

It came in a game against Kansas City today. From AP-

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — Reigning NFL MVP Tom Brady left Sunday’s game against Kansas City after being hit on the left leg, depriving the New England Patriots of the quarterback who last year led them to a 16-0 regular season.

The two-time Super Bowl MVP, who has started 128 consecutive games, went to the turf clutching his left knee midway through the first quarter when he was hit in the pocket by Chiefs safety Bernard Pollard. After being tended to on the field, he walked off, limping, between two trainers.

Brady, 31, went to the locker room and was not seen again on the sideline as backup Matt Cassel led the Patriots to a 17-10 victory. The team announced that Brady had a knee injury.

The hit by Pollard was a clean one, and pardon the pun, one of those bad breaks often suffered by NFL players.

I heard on the NFL Network that Brady has a MRI scheduled for tomorrow. If Brady is out for the year, New England could struggle to make the playoffs. If anyone besides the Pats in the AFC East were any good, I’d definitively say New England would be out of the picture.

Update- Fixed typo in the post’s title.
