Bruschi Intends To Return For Another Season

Christopher L. Gasper and Mike Reiss, both of The Boston Globe, report New England Patriots LB Tedy Bruschi (knee) intends to return for a 14th season as long as the Patriots want him back, according to a source with knowledge of Bruschi’s thinking. Bruschi missed the final three games of the season, but if the team made the playoffs, he possibly could have played in a first-round game. He will not need surgery to repair the medial collateral ligament in his left knee.
