Hoping maybe the Eagles would catch a break and get a less-than-100% Tom Brady on Thursday night, but that does not appear to be the case.
Speaking on Tuesday, he gave a thumb update:

No serious injury. Just discomfort. Bruce Arians echoed that same sentiment, telling reporters that Brady would be fine.
Brady injured the thumb during the second quarter of the Bucs’ 45-17 victory over Miami. He finished the game with five touchdown passes and more than 400 yards.
A better look at the digit right here:
Here’s a look at Tom Brady’s taped hand/thumb…Mike Evans told me he wasn’t even aware Brady injured it. Byron Leftwich laughed when I asked, telling me he found out very late in the game. pic.twitter.com/ye5l8pu7ve

Brady has already thrown for more than 1,700 yards this year. He’s logged 15 touchdowns, two interceptions, and is completing 66.2% of his passes.
