Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady will have minor knee surgery this offseason, per Tampa Bay Times Rick Stroud. Coach Bruce Arians calls the surgery a “clean up” procedure.

Brady doesn’t run the ball by design, unless it is a QB sneak, and there was nothing noticeable in his play toward the end of the season, so this likely isn’t of much concern regarding his ability to play moving forward.

At the ripe old age of 43, Brady switched teams and helped his new team win a Super Bowl in his 20th season in the league. Time lays waste to all, but Brady so far has been the exception. This injury won’t be his last if he continues to play after next season, but with a quick release and strong offensive line, he should be on track to stay as healthy as any 44-year-old could possibly stay in the NFL.
