Tom Brady reportedly had stitches removed from throwing hand
Tom Brady proved that his hand injury wasn’t an issue when he led the New England Patriots to a comeback win in the AFC Championship Game, but the star quarterback won’t even have to think about it in the Super Bowl.
Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that Brady had the 12 stitches removed from his throwing hand earlier in the week.

Brady has still been wearing his red gloves during practice, but there isn’t much to hide anymore. He already admitted that he suffered a nasty cut on his hand while handing the ball off in practice. There was no serious ligament damage, so there should be no lingering issue now that the stitches have been removed.
Brady completed 26 of 38 passes for 290 yards and two touchdowns against the Jacksonville Jaguars, who have one of the league’s best defenses. Bill Belichick was quick to remind reporters that the hand injury wasn’t a life or death situation, but it’s still impressive how well Brady played given the circumstances.
