Away from the furore of whether he dived or not, Brady is making a real impact on Hull's season.
The left-footer has been something of a surprise package so far and his manager is even more pleased considering he is playing with a problem.
"He's got a stomach problem which is causing us concern," Bruce said.
"Considering he has a problem, it's admirable that he keeps wanting to play. We might have to look at how long we can go for without surgery.
"But players like him, Stephen Quinn, Rosenior and George Boyd (Championship survivors) are enjoying trying to be Premier League players. We know how difficult the next six months will be, but we will make the best fist of it we can."
