Tom Brady: Thumb Injury Not Serious

Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady was listed as limited on Monday’s injury report with a right thumb injury.

The injured thumb is not expected to keep Brady out of this week’s matchup with the Eagles, as Brady emphasized he should be good to go come Thursday.

“I mean, look, a quarterback’s right hand is important at the end of the day. It’s not like it’s your left hand,” Brady said on Tuesday. “If it was my left hand, I wouldn’t even think two seconds about it. But the fact that it’s your throwing hand, there’s not many things that are that important to a quarterback other than probably your right shoulder, right elbow, and your right hand. So anytime you get banged on one of those, it could be an issue. But like I said, there’s no serious injury at all. It’s just more discomfort, but I think that should be gone here in the next day or two.”

Brady injured his thumb during the second quarter of the Buccaneers’ 45-17 victory over the Miami Dolphins and still managed to passed for 411 yards and five touchdowns.

The 44-year-old veteran currently leads the league with 1,767 yards passing, along with completions (149) and attempts (225).
