Patriots quarterback Tom Brady left the field bloodied after taking a shot to his nose on a sack by Titans' defensive end Kamerion Wimbley in the second quarter of the Patriots' 34-13 season-opening win.
Mike Reiss/ESPNBoston.comTom Brady has a bandage on his nose at his press conference following the Pats' win.
The gash on his nose required attention from the Patriots' medical staff, but didn't prevent Brady from returning to the field and performing at a high level.
Brady, sporting a bandage during his post-game press conference, was asked if the nose was broken.
"I dont know," he said succinctly.
When asked in a follow up if he had suffered a broken nose previously, Brady joked with a grin, "In my life? No. Previous life? I'm not sure."
Brady, who insisted he'll "be fine" and that he has "no idea what a broken nose feels like," joked that he could use some scars.
The quarterback then debunked the notion presented by a reporter of him being a "pretty boy."
"No, hopefully not. I never mind a little blood," he said.
