Tom Brady Won’t Talk About Injured Right Hand

There is speculation that New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady might not play against the Jacksonville Jaguars during Sunday’s AFC Championship game.

Brady, during a press conference on Friday, Jan. 19, refused to talk about his reportedly injured hand. He showed up to the conference wearing red gloves.

A reporter asked him, “Did you throw any footballs today.” Brady replied and said he wouldn’t “talk about that.”

According to the NFL Network, Brady has a cut on his right thumb (on his throwing hand). He suffered the injury during practice.

The cut was reportedly gushing blood and needed stitches.

A source later told the NFL Network that Brady was “zinging it pretty good” as he was throwing during practice.

When he was asked during the press conference about why he was wearing gloves, Brady replied, “I’ve worn them before,” according to an NFL Network transcript of the exchange.

Another asked him, “Have you played in a game in more pain than you’re in right now?”

He replied, “I’ve played in a lot of games in pain, so.”

And when asked about whether he’s played a game with gloves, he said, “It’s been a long time.”

ESPN reported that he didn’t partake in team-based drills after warmups on Thursday.

But Patriots receiver Danny Amendola told the network that he caught footballs from Brady during practice. “He looked good,” Amendola said.

Meanwhile, Jacksonville presents a “great challenge” on Sunday, ESPN reported.

“I think the team has worked hard to get to this point, and it will be a great game,” Brady said. “Playing against a really good team that’s good in all phases, we’re going to have to play really well.”
