Tom Brady on his right hand: It’s getting better

Getty Images

Tom Brady had the 12 stitches removed from his right hand earlier this week, but the Patriots quarterback said the injury still isn’t fully healed.

“It’s getting better,” Brady said Tuesday. “It’s not quite where I want to be, so I’m just trying to protect it the best way I can. It’s obviously a very important part of my body for a quarterback, so I want it to be as healthy as possible for the game on Sunday.”

Brady wore a specially made black glove on his right hand, which he said aids the healing process. (He did not wear a glove on his left hand Tuesday.)

“Underarmour just made it for me,” Brady said. “It’s a great glove. It’s got a lot of recovery in it, and that’s what I need at this time.”

Brady’s hand hit the helmet of teammate Rex Burkhead during a practice 11 days ago.

The Patriots return to practice Wednesday, and a pool reporter will document what Brady does or doesn’t do in practice to supplement the injury report. Brady, though, should have no problems with his hand Sunday.

  1. I can’t quite keep the stories straight. Was it a nothing burger injury or the greatest injury someone every played through?

    It’s just hard to figure out what we are calling it this week.

  2. I want to see the scars from these so called stitches that this certified lying fraud got. Why aren’t they displayed? More compulsive lying from this fake. Biggest drama queen besides lebron james in all of sports. Him and lebron use the same HGH

  3. How does a glove have a lot of recovery in it? Or better yet,… What are you talking about?…it’s a glove.

    Beat em’ lefty Tom!!

    It’ll make them feel like they are getting beaten by someone else.

  5. If his hand was hit so hard it needed 12 stitches, Shouldn’t there be an injury to his hand besides the cut? Torn ligaments, seperated thumb, broken bone? something?
    Or is Tommy afraid to just say he cut himself removing a pit from an avocado?
    How can you bend your thumb so far that it only rips the skin and not damage structure or a joint?

    ——————————–

    It’s not just a glove, it is loaded with recovery. Oodles of recovery. Recovery as far as the fingers can reach. It actually has six times the recovery of Nike recovery gloves.

    Its made from Avocados..

  9. “So sick of this guy already.”

    Then why are you here reading about him? Its 2018 man. There are a zillion ways to entertain yourself other than football. Voluntarily choosing to come here and reading an article about someone you are “so sick of” just so you can complain about it, what does that say about you ?

    “I want to see the scars from these so called stitches that this certified lying fraud got.”

    Hilarious. So you really think Brady sat out practice for the AFCCG so he could what, lie? Have an extra helping of avocado juice? What?

    What possible “advantage” could have been gained by missing practice for a hugely important game?

    Let’s get something straight. It was Peyton Manning that was using HGH (unless you somehow believe his health 30-something year old wife needed it). As for Lebron, why would he need HGH?

    To the rest of your post….you appear butt hurt. You mad bro?

    No, the idiots will just say Tom is somehow “cheating” by throwing with the other hand instead of the one the Eagles have prepared for him throwing from.

    Lolz

    So, in your mind it can only be one of two extremes? Haven’t you ever had stitches?

    Overplaying the hand. Even BB got sick of it. – Not open heart surgery quote was gold.

    BB knows no matter what a game is going to be played. If Brady played, he played, if not it would be Hoyer. That’s the facts of life as a head coach.

    Do you believe in the tooth fairy, too?

    For you to believe that, you are doing nothing but making a fool of yourself.

    56 juicy lies in the Wells Report. Took an oath in a federal court and was exonerated.

    Case closed.

    Poor little guy, spends so much time trolling he doesn’t realize the same device he uses to make a fool of himself in front of the world could just as easily be used to find the pictures.

  16. 40-year old QB. Inferior defense. Inferior offensive line. Fewer offensive weapons. And they can’t cheat, because everyone will be watching closely. Patriots only advantage in this game is experience. And possibly the officiating, but people will be watching that very closely as well. Plus, they’re playing a team that’s not in awe of them.

    This is a 10-point win by the Eagles, at a minimum. And it may be much worse than that.

    At first it was a jammed hand.

    Then he needed 4 stitches..

    Then it was 12 stitches.
    ——-

    When he walks onto the field Sunday he’ll be the first successful hand transplant recipient to play in the NFL.

  20. Eagles plus 5 is such an easy bet. Eagles moneyline bet is even easier. Eagles 28 patriots 3 . Patriot clowns won’t is the 28-3 slogan ever again

  21. If you could be Tom Brady for one day what would you do?

    I would hire 5 of these Patriots haters , stand in the middle of my yard and let them hold my 5 superbowl(soon to be 6) and revolve around me like the planets do the sun..and they would love it.I think it would bring joy to their lives.

  22. BB and TB12 are gonna pull the old Rocky stunt with eagles…when I tell you I want you to switch to southpaw!! hahaha

  23. Even if the Patriots beat the Eagles, the haters will still spew their “ cheating” narrative. What else do they have? Poor souls.

    Sounds like the Concussion Water.

  25. Open dislocation of a finger is a very common football injury. Guys play with that injury literally every week of every NFL season because that’s what football players do.

    Unusual in that it’s a QB’s thumb and not a lineman’s pinky, but as BB said, not exactly open heart surgery.

    This comment thread….geez.

  26. You haters believe everything you hear don’t you? His thumb got bent back so bad it tore his skin you say…hilarious.Google his hand and tell me where the bandage is..it clearly shows the webbing of his hand is ok.You people are not to cross the street are you.

    Then it was 12 stitches.

    By now most adults have learned not to believe the first, second or third thing you read lately.

  28. 40 year old QB or a journeyman QB?
    Oline that allowed fewer sacks and had more rushing TDs.
    Fewer offensive weapons but have the #1 offense.
    Inferior defense that allowed the fewest points in the NFL over the last 12 weeks and rarely allowed teams to score in the 4th quarter.(Total season 1 point per game less than the eagles).
    Two 1000yd recievers and QB that had the most yards passing.
    Lewis,burkhead and white can also catch,compare yds recieving.
    Lewis got more rushing yds than the eagles rushing leader and he didn’t even start at the beginning of the year.
    Defense had more sacks.
    Eagles depend on TOs,Patriots rarely turn it over and if they do they still win.
    Fewer rushing TDs allowed.

    Nothing but the truth.

  29. “Eagles plus 5 is such an easy bet. Eagles moneyline bet is even easier.”

    Oh good. I hope you literally bet your house and lose it if the Pats win.

    Lolz

  30. Why do you think doctors say to wrap up a sprained ankle,bad leg contusion?Is it to hold the leg or ankle on or is it to keep the swelling down?Does compression aid in keeping the blood flowing to the wound and not causing it to coagulate which is what causes bruising?The flow of blood actually aids in healing because it brings oxygen to the injured site.

    I know its alot of information but if you do research you can learn alot….get someone to read it to you.

  31. This is a 10-point win by the Eagles, at a minimum. And it may be much worse than that.
    ******************

    You know, for us to believe this, you have to say “book it” or “guaranteed” at the end, if you don’t then it just words on the screen.

    I find it amusing that it’s ok for a Philly fan to boast about blowing out the Pats, but if a Pats fan says they think the Pats will win, we’re being arrogant. Makes sense, since Philly has won 5 SB’s in the last 17 years while the Pats are still trying for their first…

  32. Long time Patriots fan here — I have to say watching these tom vs time documentaries locking Jimmy G out of the TB12 complex does actually seem like something Tom would do.

  33. If the Patriots win, don’t be surprised to read a headline that says ‘Brady wins Super Bowl with bionic implant in throwing hand.’ Doesn’t take much for people to come up with an excuse.

    Undisputed GOAT SYSTEM QB

    ——

    For the 1 or 2 people left that aren’t aware this is a fake name…

    Normal people just appreciate the greatness they see. It’s actually quite obvious.

    We’ll now look for the 15-20 posts where you try to “fool” everyone again before getting back to your brilliant (“it’s the system, man!”) theory. I’m sure it will catch fire for you soon. We won’t ruin for you.

  35. “It’s a great glove. It’s got a lot of recovery in it, and that’s what I need at this time.”
    This is the most circular, head scratching, nonsensical, get-in-their-heads, Tom Brady thing ever.

    Speaking of Tom, why does a 40 year old wear a ski cap in all his indoor interviews? Is it too cold for him? Tommy, skull caps are for 18 year olds.

    /-

    Yeah pretty much everyone that was being interviewed had one on
    Nice try though

    Wasting your time there Mikey. Folks ’round these parts don’t go in for that new fangled stuff like tape or ace bandages. That’s voodoo science.

    Then it must suck to know “Tammy” owns the sorry A$$ team you root for.

  41. Patriot dweebs have such a massive inferiority complex due to the nature of the town of Boston, which has a similar skyline to Birmingham Alabama, being massively jealous of NYC and the yankees owning them for eternity. Now the little wannabes try to spew it out over their convicted of cheating fraud asterisk team and they think we are jealous. Good comedy indeed

    One of the greatest compliments a fan can pay toward a legend.

    🙂

  43. It really is sad to see the legions of haters and trolls so obsessed with the patriots.

    I have been a fan for many years, we have been blessed with a great organization and great players.
    If the Eagles beat us on Sunday….all the power to them they will have deserved it.

    This run cannot last forever but it has been a Great ride.
    If it all ends this Sunday we still have the last 18 years that no team may ever match.

    As far as I am concerned everthing now is just gravy.

    That being said………..GO PATS
