The Tampa Bay Buccaneers' blowout win over the Miami Dolphins wasn't without its concerns in Week 5. In a ridiculous 5-touchdown 411-yard performance, NFL MVP frontrunner Tom Brady was spotted icing his hand.

Any injury news for the 44-year-old is concerning, but Bucs fans can breathe a sigh of relief. Brady's dealing with what appears to be a minor thumb injury, and even on a short week against the Philadelphia Eagles, Brady should be good to go on Thursday.

The injury clearly wasn't hampering Brady on Sunday, as he turned in his second 5-TD game and second 400-yard performance of the season. He even added 13 yards on his lone carry — his longest rush since joining the Bucs.

Brady's +250 odds to win NFL MVP have him as the clear-cut favorite on FanDuel Sportsbook, and his Bucs are 7-point favorites to move to 5-1 with a Thursday Night Football win.
