Tom Brady’s hand appeared very swollen
The New England Patriots struggled against the Miami Dolphins early on Sunday, with their offense looking completely out of sync throughout the entire first half. It was strange to see Tom Brady fail to establish any type of rhythm early in the game, but a hand injury could be part of the reason.
Brady was seen blowing into his throwing hand and flexing it on several occasions. At one point, CBS cameras captured a shot of the hand and it appeared to be extremely swollen.
Of course, Brady and the Patriots will deny that he was playing through any type of injury. Whether the apparent injury affected the way the 36-year-old played or not, it’s hard to argue with that photo.
