FOXBORO -- Bart Scott is at it again.

Appearing on The Damon Amendolara Show on CBS Sports Radio, the former Jets linebacker called out Tom Brady for always having an injury around a big game.

"Brady always seems to have an injury around a big game," Scott said. "I think that's like a built-in excuse. It looked like he has maybe the splint on the thumb. So I don't know if he maybe was throwing a pass and hit his thumb. But if it is his thumb, that is a cause for concern."

"I mean, before it was the Achilles and it's this and that," Scott added. "Every year during the big game, it always seems to be an injury or a phantom injury or his shoulder was messed up and we just left it off the scouting report and things like that. I don't know. But I know if it is the thumb and he has to wear a glove, that's going to be an indication that it was a legitimate injury."

Brady was present for the media-portion of practice on Thursday and Friday, but didn't practice Thursday and it is unclear what he did on Friday at this time.
