“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.
