LOOK: Tom Brady offers first glimpse at gashed handSporting News — firstname.lastname@example.org (Kirstie Chiappelli)
Tom Brady's hand injury was as disgusting as he described it.
During the web series finale of “Tom vs Time” on Monday, the Patriots quarterback revealed the first gimpse at the gash that almost cut short his season.
"When I hurt my thumb, I thought, 'This is it. This is the way the season ends,'" Brady said in the episode. "I’m looking down at my thumb as it’s split open, and I’m thinking, ‘I really don’t know what happened to my thumb, but I know it doesn’t feel good and I’m having a real hard time believing I’m going to go out and play well against the No. 1 ranked defense in four days.'"
Brady injured his right (throwing) hand at practice in the days leading up to the team's AFC championship win over the Jaguars and required 12 stitches.
While the injury didn't appear to bother him once the stitches were removed, Brady and the Patriots still fell to the Eagles in Super Bowl 52.
