Three days after Tom Brady's right-hand injury occurred, it appears we know who did it.

According to NFL Media's Mike Garafolo on Good Morning Football, it was running back Rex Burkhead.

"It was Rex Burkhead. He'll be safe, though," Garafolo said. "Rex Burkhead was the running back. They were colliding as they were doing some sort of hand-off in a little drill. I don't know exactly what happened, but it resulted in a cut. There was blood all over the place and it was significant."

As for Brady in the AFC title game, it appears he should be OK.

"He was spinning the ball pretty well at practice," Garafolo said. "Receivers didn't notice anything different from what I gather. We'll see how much of a factor it is if he has to squeeze it into a tight window, but from what I am told he should be good to go."
