Tom Brady on badly swollen right hand: ‘It’s perfect’

10.27.13 at 6:08 pm ET

FOXBORO — Tom Brady is having none of the talk and speculation that his right hand is in bad shape.

Despite a first half that saw him pass for just 25 yards, throw an interception on the first throw and register a 16.7 quarterback rating, Brady said he is doing just fine.

“It’€™s perfect,” Brady said.

It’€™s not bothering him at all?

“Absolutely not,” Brady retorted.

Told that it looks pretty swollen from TV shots (see inset photo), Brady dismissed the analysis.

“I didn’€™t know [how] anyone knows what the back of my right hand looks like, but it looks fine to me and it feels good. I’€™ll be out there next week; you don’€™t have to worry about that,” Brady said.

Brad had a better second half, including a 14-yard TD pass to Aaron Dobson. He finished 13-of-22 for 116 yards and a quarterback rating of 69.5.
