FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (UPI) -- New England quarterback Tom Brady made an appearance at a pre-Super Bowl rally without a boot on the reported high right ankle sprain. The rally took place at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro, Mass. before the Patriots boarded a flight to the site of Super Bowl XLII next Sunday in Glendale, Ariz. Last week, photos showed Brady wearing a boot on the ankle but he and team officials have been mum about the reason.
"Now this is the Foxboro faithful right here," Brady said when he addressed the fans who showed up while it was snowing. "We're going down there for one reason, for one reason, that's to bring a title back to Foxboro." When the Patriots face the New York Giants, they will try to complete the NFL's first-ever 19-0 season in their fourth trip to the big game in the past seven seasons.
