Tom Brady mum on hand injury, practice status


New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, who again wore red gloves on both hands during his Friday news conference, said he isn't talking about his right hand injury but relayed that he participated in the team's entire practice earlier in the day.

When asked if Brady will be a game-time decision for the New England Patriots' AFC Championship game on Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars, Belichick told reporters, "It's Friday".

Brady injured his hand in a minor collision with a teammate on Wednesday, but X-rays revealed no structural damage. The quarterback was listed as "limited" in the team's participation report and skipped his afternoon media availability to visit with medical staff. Asked why he was wearing them indoors, Brady replied, "I've worn them before".

Brady was asked if he has played in games in more pain than he's now experiencing.

With the AFC Championship against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday rapidly approaching, the National Football League world is naturally curious about Brady's status with the Super Bowl on the line.

Brady has appeared on the defending champion Patriots' injury report since late in the regular season but has not missed a game due to injury since 2008.

"I've played in a lot of games with pain", he said.
