Tom Brady Voices Support For Gordon Hayward, Aaron Rodgers After Injuries

Tom Brady knows what it’s like to suffer a devastating injury.

The New England Patriots quarterback tore his ACL and MCL on the 15th offensive snap of the 2008 season, but he came back better than ever. And Brady believes Gordon Hayward and Aaron Rodgers will do the same.

The Green Bay Packers quarterback broke his collarbone Sunday when he was driven into the turf by Minnesota Vikings linebacker Anthony Barr. Rodgers underwent surgery and was placed on injured reserve Friday.

Hayward, meanwhile, suffered a gruesome ankle injury during the Boston Celtics’ season-opening loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers, dislocating his ankle and fracturing his tibia. He underwent surgery Wednesday and there is no timetable for his return.

Brady noted that these injuries serve as “a reality check” for athletes, but its just a part of the game.
