A radio show host provided details on the hand injury of New England Patriots veteran quarterback Tom Brady. Per a tweet by James Stewart, executive producer of Felger and Mazz on 98.5 "Sports Hub," one of the program's hosts, Michael Felger, said Brady’s injured hand has no fracture nor ligament damage. Per Patspulpit.com, Felger said Brady sustained a cut after hitting a buckle on someone’s helmet. The cut needed four stitches around the knuckle to close, but it should not affect him in their Sunday AFC Championship Game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Felger’s claim provided some clarity on Brady’s condition, which remains unknown until now. Brady attended Friday’s press conference wearing red gloves on both hands and refused to discuss the extent of his injury or whether he could play against the Jaguars. The 40-year-old Brady missed his Wednesday media conference as he was with the medical staff. After that, it was revealed that he sustained a hand injury after colliding with a teammate during practice. On Thursday, he was spotted during the early portion of the practice warming up while wearing gloves on both hands, which was unusual for Brady since he is uncomfortable wearing one on his throwing hand. However, the Patriots listed Brady as did not participate in Thursday’s injury report.

Brady avoids questions about hand injury

During Friday’s media conference, Brady avoided taking questions about his right-hand injury, repeatedly saying: “I’m not talking about it.” When asked if he will play in Sunday’s AFC title game, Brady simply replied, “we’ll see." He also answered why he was wearing gloves during the press conference, saying, “I’ve worn them before.” Brady was a limited participant during Friday’s practice and his status is questionable days before their important clash with the Jaguars.

Aside from Brady, also listed as questionable were defensive lineman Alan Branch, running backs Rex Burkhead and Mike Gillislee and offensive lineman LaAdrian Waddle. Branch, Burkhead, Gillislee and Waddle are all dealing with knee issues.

Ex-Jets player doubts Brady’s injury

In a radio interview, former New York Jets linebacker Bart Scott called out Brady for always having an injury before a big game.

Scott told "The Damon Amendolara Show" on CBS Sports Radio that having an injury before a big game seems to be a built-in excuse for Brady and the Patriots. "I mean, before it was the Achilles and it's this and that," Scott said. However, Scott said the Patriots should be concerned if Brady has a thumb injury.
