Tampa, Fla. — Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady said Thursday that the ring finger on his throwing hand is fine, though his demeanor in practice suggests otherwise, with the injury causing him discomfort.

“Good. I feel good,” Brady said with a hint of sarcasm that drew some laughs from reporters when asked about his finger. “It’s football season.”

Brady, who usually has Wednesdays off, was a full participant in that practice and went through his full workload on Thursday. But he opened up to the media during practice, shaking his right arm several times as if worried about the injury.

Brady was not among the 12 players listed on the injury report this week.

Brady’s “Let’s Go!” The podcast hurt his right ring finger against the New Orleans Saints on Monday but downplayed its severity.

“I hit it well, but it didn’t affect me in the game,” Brady said. “There’s going to be soreness all week. But one of the bumps and bruises that come with playing. Different things — you get hit, you get kicked, you get knocked on your knees — it all comes up. It’s the derby out of demolition practice, getting ready and going to play next week, in the season. Lots of bumps and bruises.
