BOSTON, Jan. 22 (UPI) -- New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady reportedly has a mild high ankle sprain, but the NFL's MVP is expected to play in the Super Bowl.
The Boston Globe and Boston Herald both reported Brady had a minor sprain, but that he would be ready to play in Super Bowl XLII against the New York Giants Feb. 3.
Brady was photographed Monday with what appeared to be a protective walking boot on his right foot. However, since that time other photos have shown Brady without the boot.
Brady was photographed in New York Monday night with what appeared to be cowboy boots as he left dinner at an East Village nightspot with girlfriend Gisele Bundchen, according to the Herald. The newspaper reported Brady was shown not wearing the orthopedic, open-foot brace Tuesday and that he wasn't walking with a noticeable limp.
