Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady played all of the 2020 season with a torn MCL in his knee. The team never disclosed it on any of the various injury reports, from regular season through postseason.
Some have floated the notion that the Bucs are blameless for hiding the injury because Brady hid it from the Bucs. Quarterbacks coach Clyde Christensen unwittingly blew up that theory in a recent appearance on CBS Sports Radio.
“I thought everyone knew [about Brady’s torn MCL],” Christensen said, via JoeBucsFan.com. “When I first met him, he said, ‘Hey, my knee’s not 100 percent but with the tape job and stuff I’ll make it through the season and after the season we’ll get her fixed up.’ . . .
