The Boston Globe is reporting that Tom Brady is expected to undergo foot surgery Thursday afternoon at Massachusetts General Hospital, according to a source close to the situation.

The surgery, to be performed by Patriots team physician George Theodore, will aim to heal a stress fracture in Brady’s right foot which has been the speculation of many since the Patriots surprising loss to the Jets this past weekend.  There is a small chance that Brady will push back the surgery to Monday but no further.

Brady dealt with the injury throughout the season, receiving treatment from the team’s medical staff, but since the stress fracture remains, it was determined that surgery was the best option, said the source.  This will also mean that Tom Brady will miss the Pro Bowl.
