Report: Tom Brady played through a ligament tear in his throwing hand

DENVER — What’s a little cold when you’ve had to battle through a torn ligament in your throwing hand?
Albert Breer of the NFL Network reported hours before kickoff of Sunday’s AFC championship that Patriots quarterback Tom Brady actually tore a ligament in his throwing hand.
Brady repeatedly denied that anything was seriously wrong when TV cameras during the Dolphins game showed his hand grotesquely swollen.
Brady said at the time it was just a typical injury that a quarterback goes through in a season. On Sunday, Breer reported it was more than just a bruise. Brady had ligament damage in his hand. Of course, Brady played through it without surgery or missing a single snap this season.
… Back in October, Brady suffered ligament damage in his throwing hand. It's healed now. But he had to fight through it then.
