New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady has four stitches in his throwing hand according to 98.5’s Michael Felger.
Felger on Brady injury:— James Stewart (@IAmJamesStewart) January 19, 2018
“No fracture. No ligament. Just a cut from hitting the buckle on someone’s helmet. Four stitches around the knuckle, should not affect him.
Brady did not practice on Thursday, but all teammates indicated he was a full participant in practice on Friday. The stitches can clearly provide a high level of discomfort and there’s a real chance that Brady will wear a glove on his throwing hand during the game; he doesn’t usually wear a glove on both hands when he plays.
There’s no chance that Brady won’t suit up and play on Sunday and his effectiveness will come down to his pain tolerance.
