Tom Brady Glovegate is Upon Us

Tom Brady reportedly suffered a right hand injury on Wednesday after a teammate ran into him. X-rays were negative and Teflon Tom will undoubtedly be on the field for the AFC Championship game on Sunday, so this story should be going by the wayside soon, right?

Nope! All eyes were on Tom’s hands today, and there was quite the development: he wore not one, but two gloves during practice. Watch the man warm up in his red gloves:

The Boston Herald’s Jeff Howe tweeted that his thumb looked normal in this picture:

Another from @westipix, the thumb looks normal here.

But should we be concerned about the atypical two-glove move? Tom’s more of an off-hand glove type of guy β€” he likes his right hand to be nice and free:

Tom Brady (from Dec. 29, 2017, on how he feels about wearing gloves during games with the weather in mind): "Early in my career I tried using a glove on my throwing hand a little bit. It didn’t go too well. I think it’s better without."

We’ve all had the red gloves news jammed into our brains, but how did he actually look throwing a ball? In classic Pats fashion, no one got to see the quarterbacks throw according to ESPN’s Mike Reiss:

Reporters were present at practice for stretching and light jogging. The media-access period ended before there was any throwing by the QBs.

You know what that means: Tom Glovegate will be carrying on until championship Sunday. No doubt. Will he wear two gloves again? Will he switch back to one glove on gameday? What color will the glove be? These are the important questions.

Welcome to #Glovegate. Tom Brady only wore a glove on his left hand for the Titans game, so this is obviously big news.
