Brady acknowledges he had foot surgery

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady acknowledged he had surgery on his right foot “about 10 days ago,” and said the injury was “something that’s been lingering a little bit.”

In a Q&A with the NFL Network on Tuesday night after he was presented with the Associated Press Offensive Player of the Year Award, Brady, talked about the injury and how he managed to play through the problem.

“Over the course of the season, a lot of players throughout the league, a lot of players on our team deal with these type of injuries,” he said. “Part of having a little bit of mental toughness is putting those things aside and still going out and trying to perform your best each week.

“I have a great training staff and my friend Alex [Guerrero] that works with me weekly. I’m in great hands and they were able to get me out on the field feeling good and I was able to go out there and help...

Magic: Celtics showed Lakers need trade

Former Lakers great Magic Johnson told ESPN.com that Los Angeles' loss to the Celtics on Sunday demonstrated that the Lakers need to make a trade in order to position themselves for a run at a title.

 

"Unfortunately we're looking old and we're playing old," Johnson said in the article. "We're not responding to the more athletic teams and the quicker teams. So we must change something. I think we have to now look at this team and maybe say we're not good enough. Things might have to change.

 

"We have to do something," he added. "The Lakers are not responding and two things showed me that -- the Miami Heat Christmas game and then the Boston Celtics game [on Sunday]. When you don't get up for your two biggest games during the season and you have flat...

Maddon: Manny 'has something to prove'

Rays manager Joe Maddon was a guest of The Big Show on Tuesday, the same day a press conference was held in St. Petersburg introducing Manny Ramirez and Johnny Damon as the newest members of Maddon's squad. Maddon was asked about the addition of of Ramirez, now 38, who played in a career-low 90 games in 2010.

 

"I had dinner with him last night, as you know he's actually a very ingratiating fellow," said Maddon of Ramirez, who had off-season surgery to repair a sports hernia. "We had a good conversation, I explained to him about the Rays and how we do things here and he just continued to repeat the mantra that at seven o'clock he's going to play hard and compete. And he said that to me several times. So I think he's at the point where he feels like he has something to prove. He's lost some weight, he's in great shape, he's been working out with Evan Longoria and some other fellows. It was great to see them [Ramirez and Damon]...
