FOXBORO (CBS) – There are more questions than answers about Tom Brady’s injured right hand. One of those questions, however, may have been answered on Saturday.

Who was the “culprit” that accidentally injured the star quarterback?

Mike Garafolo of the NFL Network reported Saturday morning that running back Rex Burkhead injured Brady during “some kind of hand off.”

Garafolo added that there was “blood all over the place” but since then Brady has been throwing the ball well and “I’m told he should be good to go.”

The report lines up with previous news on Brady’s injury.

Michael Felger of 98.5 The Sports Hub reported Friday Brady received four stitches around the knuckle, but resumed throwing and should not be impacted.

WBZ-TV’s Dan Roche added that Brady “threw the ball and threw it well” in his return to practice.

Brady is officially listed as questionable for the AFC Championship Game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

    Wonder if she ever heard of audio books?

    The Russians cut Brady.

    1. @Diane_Dina Funny! And yet, I’m sure that explanation is not entirely out of the realm of possibility, at least in the ‘minds’ of many these days! Did they ‘hack’ his knuckles?

  4. All a deflection from the Sports Illustrated article.

  5. From “a handoff,” seriously? This might be the first ever bloody mess from a handoff in football history.

  6. Argos Wolf says:

    Rooting for the underdog, go Jags!

  7. Stitches on the knuckles, been there done that. Not a big deal, piece of cake, no need to go soft when the big game is on the line.

  8. Curt Schilling gave us the bloody sock game, now Brady can give us the bloody glove game.

  9. he’ll have to read with one hand

  10. Don’t believe any of it. seen Pats do similar in prior year playoffs.

  11. Brady actually had another finger attached to his hand for his 6th ring.

  12. If he ever shows up in that cable knit sea captain sweater again…that would be questionable…LOL

  13. You injure your kuckle when you pop someone.

  14. Vox Veritas says:

    Hmm…”there was blood everywhere” doesn’t exactly square with “four stitches around the knuckle.”

    Hyperbole thy name is Mike Garafolo.

  15. they are such cheaters i dont believe them.
