Tom Brady Talks About Injury Suffered in Sunday’s Game

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady says his finger is "good" despite injuring it during Sunday's win over the New York Jets.

Brady apparently suffered a cut on his right thumb in the first half of Sunday's game. He got it bandaged up and returned for the Patriots' next offensive possession.

"It's good. Nothing at all," Brady told WEEI's Mut & Callahan show on Monday morning. "I'm feeling good. Excited we won. Looking forward to getting back to work this week. It's a big one."

Brady was listed as questionable ahead of Sunday's game due to a knee injury that limited his practice reps last week. It was the first time this season that he had been included on the injured list. He played well Sunday, although NBC Sports Boston's Phil Perry said he had a "nasty bruise" on his right knee.

He reportedly suffered the knee injury on the double pass against the Tennessee Titans on Nov. 11.

Brady doesn’t rank in the top 10 in any significant statistical categories this year, whether it’s passing yards, completion percentage, touchdown passes, or passer rating. This all comes less than a year after winning NFL MVP honors in 2017 and being named First Team All-Pro at quarterback, each honor going his way for the third time in his career. He finished in the top five in all categories last year, including a league-best 4,577 yards through the air.

In Sunday's win, Brady completed 20 of 31 pass attempts for 283 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions. He also passed Peyton Manning as the NFL's all-time leader in passing yards.

The Patriots play at home against Minnesota on Sunday.
