Tom Brady's nose injury might not be the best news for the companies that pay him to sponsor their products, but for the most part, the New England Patriots escaped Week 1 unscathed.
Brady was unsure after the game whether his nose was broken when Titans defensive end Kamerion Wimbley sacked him in the second quarter. Regardless, he continued to play, bloody nose and all, with a bandage on the wounded area of his face.
"I have no idea what a broken nose feels like," Brady said. "It'll be fine. I need some of that anyways."
There was some concern surrounding right guard Dan Connolly, who left in the third quarter after a head injury. But the offensive lineman, who missed two games at the end of the 2010 season with a concussion, passed all the necessary tests and does not have a concussion, meaning he'll be available to play going forward.
