    Tom Curran off the top rope

    EDIT: Maybe Curran is on on the prank too? Or maybe, when you think about it, it probably aligns fairly closely to what Felger and some others have said, and the reality is, he'll probably play but he may indeed not be at 99.999999%.

    Just heard on the radio Brady today on the practice report was listed as limited and currently listed as questionable.

    So he did more than yesterday officially according to the report.

    I think the fact he threw at all today was highly encouraging.

    Curran's (very short) piece is up. The key part:
    Brady’s right thumb bent back badly when he was smashed into by a running back. Somehow, the ball got jammed back into the webbing between his thumb and index finger and it caused a cut. Might have been the laces. There may be stitches. He’s not taking snaps under center. He can take them in shotgun. He’s trying not to aggravate the thumb between now and kickoff so the reps are at a minimum. He can throw. I have no idea how hard, how far or how accurately.

    What we're hearing: Brady has painful thumb injury

    Too late. Seth Wickersham is already reporting that it was actually Alex Guerrero who snuck onto the practice field and intentionally ripped tendons in all of Brady's fingers on Wednesday. This was revenge on Belichick who is costing him his business when Belichick threw him out of the locker room. Belichick is pissed and had a 120 minute meeting with Kraft to get him to kick the TB12 treatment center off Patriot Place in its entirety. Kraft instead is forcing Belichick to let Guerrero back in the locker room. Belichick is planning on resigning in protest after the stomping on Sunday and taking his dream job with the Arizona Cardinals and the Bidwell family after he spends the next week in the Hamptons with Goodell. Wickersham says he interviewed two dozen team anonymous team sources and friends who supplied him with this information.

    we heard cut from the start...so what makes more sense from a hand off..dislocation of thumb where bone popped through the skin...or a cut requiring stitches? stitches makes more sense to me.

    What Curran is reporting is nothing like what Felger was told. I hope Felger's source is right and Curran's is wrong.

    If the x-rays don't show a fx or dislocation, we're talking about a "boo-boo." It could be a painful or irritating "boo-boo" that's interfering with his ability to practice but I'm not hearing anything that says he won't be ready on Sunday.

    I don't really think it's that off. Maybe his hand hit the ball, maybe it hit a helmet--who cares? If it was a cut and there was a lot of blood, as Garafalo reported, it stands to reason Brady would be in pain too.

    It's identical. Curran just has more detail.

    It must be pretty painful if he can't take snaps from under center

    Including the crucial detail that the thumb was substantively injured -- enough that for now they're not willing to have him take snaps under center in practice. And also that none of Curran's usual people are saying anything.

    Felger's source is saying four stitches in the back of one of the knuckles. Curran's story has the thumb involved. That makes a big difference.

    There not even close to the same

    Yeah, the 'radio silence', especially when Curran seems pretty well plugged into Brady's camp, is definitely a bit more ominous.

    I'm just glad the weather won't be too cold, that will help with pain. And if he shoots up before for the game it's all the more important to get an early lead so by the 2nd half when it wears off hopefully he's just handing the ball off...and then letting Hoyer play the last 5 minutes or so.

    He said the thumb was bent way back. He didn't say the thumb was substantively injured.

    It's a cut in a place that ****ing hurts, deep enough to require stitches. Everything the Patriots have done this week are completely consistent with that.
