Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady confirmed that he injured a finger on his throwing hand on Sept. 19 against the New Orleans Saints.

“Yes, [I] did pretty well,” Brady told Jim Gray on Let’s Go! Podcast on Monday 19th September. “It didn’t affect me in the game at all. I’ll be in pain all week but one of those bumps and bruises that come with gaming.

Brady grabbed his ring finger on his throwing hand after a fumble, but he never left the game, finishing with 190 yards passing and a touchdown. He also only picked up one sack in the game.

“You get punched and kicked and kneeled and all those things come up,” Brady added of the injury. “And it’s a demolition derby out there. Who can recover quickly enough to put themselves in a position to practice, prepare and then play well over the next week.”

Brady is hoping to avoid another injury – somehow – as he made it easy for himself to throw another pill on the sidelines in New Orleans.

“Unfortunately, I have a pretty bad record against this tablet. I think I forgot my password and couldn’t log in, so things like that can be frustrating,” Brady told Grey. “Unfortunately sometimes this tablet just gets in the way and that was obviously why things weren’t going so well, so I had to skip it on this poor, meaningless tablet.”

“I try to make sure I don’t throw my arm out when I throw it,” Brady added. “I was pretty pissed off yesterday so I’ll keep going until I get it right. And since repetition is the key to success, of course I need to get the perfect tablet slam, which I haven’t gotten yet.”

Gray and Brady joked about the tablet going on injured reserve, but the tablet didn’t make it, Brady said.

“The tablet is out of service. That will never come to life again,” Brady said.

Brady’s visible frustration extended to the field, where he was chasing teammates on Sunday.

“Well, we just didn’t play very well, and I think it was something the Saints came up with,” Brady told Gray. “We haven’t found a way to avoid ourselves. There are too many unforced errors. Too many plays where we have the opportunity to do the right thing and make the play and we just don’t do it.

The Bucs stuttered three quarters with just one field goal. Brady got the offense going in the fourth quarter with a 28-yard touchdown pass to Breshad Perriman.

“The 2-0 feels good. It was a tough, emotional game at times, but good to win,” Brady told Grey. “After two weeks of football I feel pretty good here, but of course we still have a long way to go and we haven’t played our best football in offense so we have a lot of room to grow. Hopefully we can achieve some bigger things in the future.”
