FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) - Has Tom Brady given the boot to the boot?
Hours after being photographed with a walking boot on his right foot as he followed girlfriend Gisele Bundchen into her New York apartment on Monday, other pictures showed the New England Patriots quarterback wearing black shoes - and no boot - when he showed up at a New York hotspot.
The Web site PageSix.com had two photos - credited to INFDaily.com - that showed Brady wearing blue jeans and a black sweater with the black shoes and no boot. In one photo, he was followed by Bundchen as they arrived at the club Butter in New York, the Web site said.
Earlier Monday, several Web sites had photos - credited to infphoto.com - that showed Brady wearing a walking boot on his right foot. A video of Brady walking with a slight limp from an SUV to Bundchen's home is also available on TMZ.com.
Brady and the New England Patriots are headed to the Feb. 3 Super Bowl against the New York Giants.
The chief of the foot and ankle division at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston said Brady doesn't appear to be seriously injured.
Dr. Chris Chiodo, who is not treating Brady, said he has used a boot to treat several ailments, including a sprain, a strain, a bone bruise, tendinitis or overuse of the foot. He said he strongly doubted Brady had a displaced fracture.
``I don't think he'd be walking on it if that were the case,'' Chiodo, an orthopedic surgeon told The Associated Press in a telephone interview.
There's plenty of time before the unbeaten Patriots face the Giants and the three players who contributed most to New York's league-high 56 sacks - Osi Umenyiora, Justin Tuck and Michael Strahan.
Brady has been extremely durable in his NFL career. He started his 126th consecutive game Sunday when the Patriots beat San Diego 21-12 in the AFC championship game, in which the Chargers' Philip Rivers took all his team's snaps and threw for 211 yards despite arthroscopic surgery on his right knee six days earlier.
