08:05 AM ET 01.20 | Tom Brady's foot quickly became a trending topic in New England on Wednesday. Brady is expected to undergo foot surgery Thursday afternoon at Massachusetts General Hospital, according to a source close to the situation. The operation, to be performed by Patriots team physician George Theodore, will address a lingering stress fracture in the quarterback's right foot. There is a small chance 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.

I guess he is putting his best foot forward.

The Pats want to make sure he has good feet.

Nothing like getting your toes worked on!

Maybe Mrs. Ryan can give him the name of a good foot massager!
