Tom Brady didn’t practice on Thursday.
With a hand injury that limited him at practice on Wednesday and forced him to wear a glove on his throwing hand, something that is rare for Brady over his 18-year career, the New England Patriots quarterback wasn’t able to practice with the offense leading up to their AFC Championship matchup against the Jacksonville Jaguars. He did participate in warm-up drills however.
And so three days before the AFC Championship game, Tom Brady did not practice due to his hand injury.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) January 18, 2018
Brady also didn’t have his scheduled press conference, delaying that until Friday so he could follow up with medical exams after practice.
Backup quarterback Brian Hoyer did meet with the media however and said he’d be ready to go if need be.
Personally, I think Brady plays. But it is interesting to see just how perfectly the planets are aligning and how it seems as if the Universe has gone all in on the Jaguars this year. They’re getting every single break they possibly can.
