Report: Tom Brady’s hand “should be OK”

Getty Images

Reports of a hand injury for Tom Brady had Patriots Nation in a tizzy earlier Wednesday. But it appears the blood pressure in New England has dropped significantly since.

Mike Reiss of ESPN, quoting a source close to Brady, said the quarterback’s hand “should be OK.” Per Reiss, the injury could affect Brady “slightly,” but the belief is he “should be good overall.”

The use of the word “should” still raises some concern, but the injury report Thursday and the status report Friday will provide some insight. By all accounts, though, it appears Brady avoided an even bigger scare.

Brady injured his throwing hand with a teammate accidentally ran into him, but X-rays showed no structural damage.

The Patriots carry only one other quarterback on their roster, and veteran Brian Hoyer could get additional snaps in practice this week.

  1. Brady has been secretly working on throwing with his left-hand for the last 10 years just in case. Everything will be fine, but get that Line under 7 if you can. Thanks.

  2. A paradox for the trolls. Earlier when the injury was reported they said you can’t believe anything coming out of NE. So if word is Brady’s hand should be okay does that mean it isn’t?

  3. I hope he’s good to go. As a fan of one of the other three remaining teams, I’d rather have the opportunity to beat the Pats at full strength than beat them without Brady and have a big asterisk hanging over the trophy. Of course, I have a feeling some of fellow fans will disagree and take the win however they can get it.

  4. Maybe the Patriots will go to the Super Bo…zzzzzZZZZzzzzz…..

    Fascinating stuff, this modern NFL.

  5. .
    injury reports from the Pats carry 0 credibility.
    So to ponder something like this is a waste of brain activity.

    BTW please tell me what exactly Hogans injury was…
    Oh yeah see above.

  6. Omg thank god I don’t think I could have slept a wink after hearing this horrible news

  7. It’s simple. If the Pats protect Brady AND the football in the AFC championship game, they win. If they don’t, they lose. The Jags are the biggest obstacle to the Patriots repeating as Super Bowl champs.

  8. When he was injured against the giants in 2007 and the jets in 2010, it was a closely guarded secret . The transparency of this non-injury should concern the jaguars

  9. Non story here, pure drama and gamesmanship by the best head coach of all time. And this is coming from a die hard Miami fan. Even back in the Shula days.
    Jags will be a tough out if they don’t them the ball over and the refs let both teams play.

  10. Belichick reports the injury then he is gaming the system, and if he doesn’t report it he’s cheating. Sorry, you just can’t win with these anti-patriot clowns.

  11. but by following Alex Guerrero and the TB12 method it’s downright impossible to sustain a football injury… isn’t it?

  12. If Brady had to have it xray’d then I’m sure this wasn’t fake news. Glad Brady should be OK. GO PATS!!! Blitz for Six

    With tomorrow being January 19th, let me be the first to wish you Happy Snow Bowl Anniversary! It’s the game that launched a Dynasty that is still going 17 years later. It was also Jon Gruden’s last game as a coach, until he was recently signed to take over the Raiders again, and where does he find The Patriots? Right where he left them. At the top! Doh!!!

  14. If this was really BIG Ben he would be claiming to have breaks in three places and then keep forgetting which hand it was. Brady is so much more mentally tough it is comical. That said I really hope Ben does play 3 more years.

  15. Well, the line opened at -9.0 and is now down to -8.5 If you want to know if his hand is REALLY hurt or not, just keep an eye on the betting line. If it drops to 7.5 or lower, there’s a strong likelihood that his hand is a real concern. If it stays put, he’s fine. Somehow, Vegas ALWAYS finds out the skinny on injuries and they adjust the lines accordingly.

    *report that Brady is ok*
    “Doesn’t matter, he sucks.”

    Typical.

  18. Hey, an injured throwing hand is nothing to shake a finger at. Don’t downplay this injury no matter how small it could be.

  19. Seriously, didn’t even know he had a hand issue… I guess though, if by some miracle the Jags win, Pats fan will have an excuse at the ready.

    They are due for some bad luck like every other team has dealt with.

    Well they are without Edelman and Hightower so your wish is granted. And they have been without Gronk before. Just because they win anyways doesnt mean they dont get hit with bad luck just as much as anyone.

  22. Brian Hoyer….

  24. He probably slapped Hateful Josh McDaniel across the face. Man, do they HATE each other… McDaniel laughing with Brady on the sideline during the Titans game was all just a charade !!!

  25. How dare some “player” run into TB12!!!
    I bet Brady yelled at them and said “I’m TB12 YOUR A NOBODY” Like he does with everyone

  26. My word you people will melt about literally anything related to the pats. Get a life.

  27. There’s always some sort of fake drama surrounding this team…pretty sure it’s all drummed up by the Pats themselves….nothing wrong with Brady but man the press sure gets sucked in and sensationalizes every non story…nothing to see here again

    Probably not. But since Brady’s a pretty intelligent guy he would have said “…you’re a nobody” if he did express such a sentiment.

  29. Imagine if Brady couldn’t play this weekend, the NFL would be trotting out QB’s:

    Brian Hoyer
    Blake Bortles
    Nick Foles
    Case Keenum

    And 2 of them HAVE to win…oh my.

    I think any person capable of thinking on a critical level would ask themselves why the Patriots would “drum this up”. To what end? After thinking about why they would do this a critical thinking person would then weigh the components necessary to create this story along with the ramifications if malfeasance is discovered against the benefit of a bogus story. I seriously doubt the Patriots would invent a story where a player collided with Brady. I doubt they would have him seek treatment to validate the story. I doubt they would have him miss a mandatory press engagement to validate the story. I doubt they would list him on the injury report as probable to validate the story. Would anyone think the jaguars are affected by this in any way? Good grief.
    He banged his hand, he got some treatment and verified no broken bones, they are complying with the NFL concerning the injury report. End of story.

  31. All intelligent football fans know Brady’s toughness is extremely underrated. Win or lose, great game or not, you’ll never hear him or the team make excuses for injuries or put on a drama queen act around injuries.

    Now Patriot hater dopes will have a different opinion, but that’s why they are dopes. 🙂

    Exactly.

    Patriot Hater really isn’t very bright. That’s why they’re so much fun to taunt and laugh at!

    Even if it is 3 of those 4 I can’t wait to hear the hawt taeks this offseason that you don’t need a good QB to win. Should be comical.

  34. Hasnt anybody learned that

    1) Brady is always added the injury report for suspense and during the week leading up to the game

    2) its only to make the Patriots look better when they win and/or kill the Jagz.

    3) I hope they don’t kill the Jagz but lets be real.

    Thanks

  35. 1) Brady has been added to the injury report 13 out of 53 weeks over the last three seasons.

    2) It’s only when he has received treatment

    3) Anything can happen this weekend

    Thanks

    He’s been on the injury report all season with a shoulder and an achilles.

    Thanks.

  37. Brady is at practice today. Good enough for me 🙂

    On a related topic now it’s time for the NFL to release the PSI measurements they collected a couple years ago! What say you #LyinRoger Goodell?

    The drama queen was eliminated on Sunday. 🙂

  39. He’s been on the injury report all season with a shoulder and an achilles.

    Thanks.

    According to the NFL……

    2017
    week 6-Jets
    week 12-Dolphins
    week 13-Bills
    week 14-Dolphins
    week 15-Steelers
    week 17-Jets
    2016
    week 12-Jets
    week 13 Rams
    week 16 Jets
    week 17 Dolphins
    2015
    week 14-Titans
    week 18-Chiefs
    week 19-Broncos

    This is all easily verified with a few key strokes

    will they deflate the ball so he can get a better grip?

    ====================

    why? its going to be cold, ball will lose pressure naturally

  41. JustBlameTrumpOrRussia says:

    Most Road Postseason Wins
    Joe Flacco

    =======================================

    Flacco has 3 more road starts than Brady yet Brady has played 25 more playoff games than he has. Being #1 in road playoff wins is a bit of a backhanded compliment. And if you count Super Bowl wins, Brady would have more “road” wins than Flacco.
