Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady is not expected to miss any time after injuring his right thumb in Sunday’s win against Miami, NFL Network reported Monday.

Brady, 44, hurt his thumb early in Sunday’s game but finished with 411 yards and five touchdown passes. It was the first time in his 22-year career that he passed for 400-plus yards with five TDs in the same game.

Linebacker Lavonte David, however, will reportedly need three to four weeks of recovery time for a low-ankle sprain suffered in the 45-17 victory over the Dolphins, according to ESPN.

David will miss at least this Thursday night’s game when the defending Super Bowl champion Buccaneers (4-1) visit the Philadelphia Eagles (2-3) for the Week 6 contest.

David, 31, injured his ankle in the first half and was ruled out for the second half. He has 34 tackles and one sack in five starts this season, his 10th year with the Buccaneers.
