Patriots | Tom Brady claims hand is fine
Sun, 27 Oct 2013 20:39:04 -0700
New England Patriots QB Tom Brady (hand) said after the Week 8 game against the Miami Dolphins that his hand is fine, although a close-up look on television showed noticeable swelling of his throwing hand. He completed 13 of his 22 pass attempts for just 116 yards, one touchdown and one interception in the victory. "My hand is perfect," Brady said Sunday, Oct. 27. "I didn't know that anyone knows what the back of my hand looks like. It looks fine to me. It feels good, so I'll be out there next week, you don't have to worry about that."
Brady might claim his hand is fine, but photographic evidence proved otherwise, and his stat line doesn't lie either. It might be a good idea to have an alternate plan heading into Week 9 if you own Brady in fantasy leagues. He is clearly not 100 percent, and he is hurting fantasy owners.
