The quarterback was seen shaking and clasping his hand throughout the game against New Orleans. The injury occurred during a failed exchange between Brady and midfielder Robert Heinsi at the start of the match.
“Obviously, while he may not be in great pain, there must be something frustrating or upsetting about him. We saw him, in the very small window that was open for us today here at Buc training, so many times he was shaking that one hand, we looked to that hand, at some point we saw him go and sprinkle something on that hand,” Lin said. “He talked on Monday that it was his finger that got hit, it happened in a botched shot, so we know exactly when that happened. Look, that’s not going to keep him out of the game and it might not be. It doesn’t affect him at all but there’s something about it, it’s Not nothing.”
“Now, there are a lot of other teammates who have a laundry list of more serious things,” Lin continued. “Again, Chris Goodwin isn’t there, Julio Jones isn’t there. You want a good piece of news for Boss, his left handler, Donovan Smith, who missed last week because of that excessive elbow, he’s back today, he’s wearing a brace on that elbow. This team needs all the help they can get up front with injury because it has been a challenge from the start for this Buccaneers team who have been able to come out unharmed so far in 2 0.”

It’s important to note that Brady was not included in this week’s Tampa Bay injury report. He trained more than usual as Brady wore the suit on Wednesday, which was supposed to be a day out for him all season.
Brady completed an 18/34 pass for 190 yards and one touchdown against the Saints. For the season, 59% of his passes for 402 yards were linked with two touchdowns and an interception.
Tampa Bay is scheduled to play its opening home game against the Green Bay Packers at 4:25 p.m. on Sunday, September 25. The match will be broadcast on FOX.
