It looks like 2010 is off to a tough start for Patriots quarterback Tom Brady.
Brady is coming off of a year where he dealt with a broken finger and broken ribs, and it looks like he’s already dealing with a finger inury. Ian Rapoport of the Boston Herald reports that Brady appears to have an issue with the middle finger on his throwing hand.
According to Rapoport Brady was spotted yesterday with two of his fingers taped together, with his middle finger thought to be the one that is injured after it’s believed his hand struck the helmet of a Saints player on a deep pass to Randy Moss during Thursday’s 27-24 win over New Orleans. That was the play it’s thought that the injury occurred on, as that’s the play where the Saints got the most pressure and had guys in Brady’s face.
Rapoport points out that if that was the play he injured it on, the good news he still went on to complete his next three passes.
We’ll have to wait and see if they’re still taped when the team takes the field later today, as the team has one practice session from 2:30pm – 4:00pm later this afternoon.
