All of Patriots nation has had their collective breathes held since Wednesday when it was reported that Tom Brady needed medical attention on his throwing hand.
Since then, we have heard the widest spectrum of reports on what exactly was the deal with Brady’s hand. Yesterday it was reported that Tom had a cut on his knuckle that needed stitches, which would really be the best case scenario, but even still, there were conflicting reports. Tom didn’t answer any questions about what exactly happened or what the condition is.
If you wanted to feel better about the whole situation, take a look here at what Patriots owner Robert Kraft had to say when he heard the news while he was in Florida: via Patriots All-Access. Kraft flew back to Foxboro and checked things out, he watched Tom throw some passes and felt a lot better about the whole situation.

If Kraft felt a lot better after seeing Tom throw, then I’m going to sleep like a baby tonight. This is all the confirmation I needed to commence my high level of confidence. After this being reported, I’m not even sure how the Jaguars board the team plane. The game plan is set, the Patriots are ready, it’s time to go out and do what they do best. Win playoff football games. I can’t freaking wait. Let’s go!!!
