3) No pressure but would give it up for a return to normal

Bradley admitted that it is good for him to be able to focus on his recovery. In the current climate, there is no pressure to return to action for the first team.

As a result, the Princeton, New Jersey native can concentrate on giving his ankle the best possible chance to heal. He is in contact with the surgeon and his doctor, as well as the TFC medical staff, looking for advice and guidance on how to continue his progress while staying smart.

However, the one thing that has always been known when it comes to Bradley, is his ability to make sacrifices and always put the interests of the team first. This is why he was made captain in the first place.

This mindset also extends beyond the team and towards people in general, even to the point where he would be prepared to not be as far along in his recovery. As per TSN, Bradley said:

"“Obviously I’d trade it all away in two seconds for everybody else to be able to live their normal lives as a society, not to have lost the number of people. It’s obviously terrible when you look all around the world to see what’s going on.”"
