After four weeks of being on the field, there is little doubt that Tom Brady is looking forward to his return.
On Sunday, Brady, the Patriots’ quarterback, will take part in a pregame warm-up for the team’s second preseason game, against the New York Jets.
“I’m definitely excited for him,” Patriots owner Robert Kraft said of his quarterback, per ESPN.
“I’m just looking forward for him to come in here and be out there.”
It’s a bit early to tell what Brady will look like after a few days of training camp.
He’ll still have to undergo a physical and undergo some post-practice work, but it’s likely that he’ll be ready to go when the Patriots take the field against the Jets on Monday Night Football on September 2.
Brady, who has a sprained ankle, is scheduled to undergo surgery later this week on his left knee.
It is not clear when he will be able to return.
If he’s unable to play in Week 1, it will be another two weeks before the Patriots can begin practicing.
