Brissett’s injured thumb looking good in Patriots' locker room

FOXBORO - Patriots quarterback Jacoby Brissett made his way through the locker room Tuesday morning without any splint, tape or cast on his right thumb.

"Never seen so many people looking at my hand," Brissett joked as he passed.

Brissett said he wasn't addressing the media en masse on Tuesday but when asked if he's feeling "tip-top," he answered, "Oh yeah."

Brissett injured the thumb Thursday in the second half of the win over Houston.

We reported it was a "minor" injury that wouldn't need surgery.

Brissett, for what it's worth, was carrying a binder in his right hand.
