According to the NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, Tom Brady is finally healthy again after dealing with an MCL sprain during the season. He’s good to go on Sunday against the Los Angeles Chargers in the AFC Divisional Playoff at Gillette Stadium.

As was previously suspected, Rapoport says Brady’s MCL injury occurred during the Patriots’ 34-10 loss to the Tennessee Titans in Week 10. He says Brady suffered the injury when going out to catch a pass on a trick play. Now, Rapoport believes that Brady is as healthy as he’s been at any point since the season started.

Brady certainly looked pretty healthy in Week 17 against the New York Jets, when he completed 24 of 33 passes for 250 yards and four touchdowns. He posted his highest passer rating of the season (133.8) in that game.

Now coming off a bye week with a chance to get as healthy as possible, Brady will look to lead the Patriots to their eight straight appearance in the AFC Championship Game, where the Kansas City Chiefs await the winner of Chargers-Patriots in Foxborough.
