He did not provide a timeline for his recovery, however.
“I spoke to him last week,” Licht said. “I know things are going well. I don’t want to put a specific timeline on it now because I don’t want to set expectations one way or the other, but I know things are going really well. ”
A source familiar with the situation told ESPN it was not a recent injury and that Brady had been planning the procedure for months and it was no surprise.
It’s not clear at this point whether Brady will participate in off-season training – if there is any – although coach Bruce Arians has previously said he doesn’t think Brady necessarily needs them. When asked about the procedure in late February, the Arians said Brady could be ready for the 7v7 job by June.
Brady was seen last month in an Instagram video posted by friend Dave Grutman throwing a soccer ball at David Beckham on the beach. Brady wore his usual left knee sleeve in the video.
