Brady may have hand injury, too

Tom Brady AP

Eyebrows were raised this week when Patriots quarterback Tom Brady landed on the injury report with the same right shoulder injury that once consistently rendered him “probable” to play, week in and week out.

It could be that disclosing the shoulder injury was aimed at concealing another injury.  Via ESPNBoston.com, Brady appeared at a charitable event on Saturday with the middle and ring fingers of his throwing hand taped together.

Unless it’s a fashion statement (and with Brady you never can be completely sure it isn’t), Brady has a hand injury.  A hand injury that hasn’t been listed on the injury report.

Via ESPNBoston.com, Brady appeared to be dealing with discomfort in his hand during last Sunday’s loss to the Jets.  Moments ago, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network downplayed the notion that the situation could affect Brady on Sunday against the Dolphins.

On one hand, it’s hard to dismiss that a quarterback with two fingers taped together on the hand with which he throws the ball will be perfectly fine throwing the ball.  On the other hand, if it were an issue Brady would have removed the tape or worn a glove or mittens or something to conceal the tape.

    How does one wear a glove over 2 fingers taped together??

    Maybe the tape serves the same purpose as the right shoulder designation on the IR.

    If you’re looking for Belicheat to be honest about an injury, you’re gonna have a hard time.

    Geno Smith will lead the Jets to another AFC East title.

    He kept looking at his hand and shaking it while he was on the bench between 3 and outs in the third and fourth quarters…at the time I wondered why no member of the announcing crew picked up on it.

    Teddy Bruschi can stop by to heal him.

    The strip sack last week was a result of the defensive lineman swatting the back of Brady’s hand as he pulled the ball back to throw.

    He’d definitely have a nasty bruise from that and I wouldn’t be surprised if it was more than that.

    Perhaps you folks have forgotten how Brady got his job? I predict that once Mallet gets his chance, you are just going to shake your heads! He may turn out even better than Brady. Go ahead…. laugh. Mallet is the real deal.

    It’s an old fashioned Brady beat down. Pats getting run.
