Brady dealing with minor injury to throwing hand

New England Patriots star quarterback Tom Brady is apparently dealing with a minor injury to the middle finger on his throwing hand, the Boston Herald reported Saturday.

Brady had his right middle finger and index finger taped together at practice Saturday. The three-time Super Bowl winner had his right hand wrapped in a towel on the sideline during the second half of Thursday night’s preseason victory over the New Orleans Saints. He also appeared to be flexing the middle finger on his throwing hand at various times.

At this point, its not clear whether or not the finger is broken, sprained, swollen, or none of the above. All we know is that the injury didn’t affect his performance in the game. Brady was 5-for-8 passing for 67 yards in the Patriots’ 27-24 victory.

The Herald believes Brady may have injured the finger when he tried to complete a pass to wide receiver Randy Moss in the first quarter. Brady appeared to hit the helmet of New Orleans’ linebacker Jo-Lonn Dunbar, who came barreling around the edge, as he threw the pass. Brady immediately looked down at his hand after the play.

The injury doesn’t appear to be serious, but it is certainly something to keep an eye on as the preseason continues for New England.
