New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady missed Wednesday’s post-practice media session as he was with the team’s medical staff after suffering an in-practice injury.
According to Karen Guregian, the Patriots gunslinger jammed his hand at practice.
There’s no further details on what exactly happened, but it would make sense if this were an injury suffered on a followthrough of a throw from Brady, where he connected with a teammate’s helmet.
NFL reporter Ian Rapoport doesn’t believe the injury is a major one.
Brady was one of four Patriots players — including tight end Rob Gronkowski, safety Devin McCourty and special teams player Matthew Slater — scheduled to speak to the media, along with head coach Bill Belichick on Wednesday, according to New England Cable News.
Brady has appeared in 35 career playoff games and owns a 26-9 record, which includes five Super Bowl wins and seven AFC conference titles.
The Patriots will host the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday in what will be their seventh consecutive AFC championship game appearance.
