Report: Hand injury won't hinder Tom Brady in AFC Championship Game
New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was limited Wednesday with a hand injury but is expected to be ready for the AFC Championship game on Sunday.
According to ESPN, Brady "should be OK," but a second source told the network it could affect him slightly against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Brady canceled his session with the media Wednesday and the Patriots announced he was meeting with the team's medical personnel. Tests including X-rays revealed no structural damage.
Cornerback Eric Rowe said he saw "The same old Tom out there," after Wednesday's practice despite the team designating Brady as limited.
The Patriots were scheduled to practice Thursday at 12:15 p.m. ET. New England did not make a roster move. Only two quarterbacks, Brady and backup Brian Hoyer, are on the roster and none are on the practice squad as of Thursday.
Brady has missed his Wednesday media session multiple times to receive treatment on other injuries. A tender Achilles and throwing shoulder put him on the injury report multiple times this season.
At 40, Brady was named Pro Football Writers of America's Most Valuable Player for the 2017, his third PFWA MVP honor.
