Tom Brady’s fashionable enough you probably won’t see him wearing much white after Labor Day.
But when he showed up with a white bandage to protect his bloodied nose after Sunday’s win at Tennessee, the celebrity quarterback made himself fair game for teammates.
“He’s such a good-looking guy,” Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker said. “Obviously, he gets banged up, and he’s probably the toughest metrosexual I’ve ever come across.”
Brady didn’t miss a snap after getting sacked by Kamerion Wimbley, and joked after the game “I need some scars.”
“Any time you see your leader out there, going out there and taking hits like that and everything else,” Welker said. “You ask him if it’s broken. He doesn’t know, and he doesn’t care. He loves football, and he loves playing. He does a great job.”
That doesn’t mean they won’t tease him unmercifully.
