New England quarterback Tom Brady gave Patriots fans a scare Wednesday when he skipped a scheduled news conference and was limited in practice in preparation for Sunday’s AFC championship matchup against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Details on what happened were sparse, but a Boston Herald report shed some light on the situation.
Tom Brady jammed his throwing hand at practice after accidentally being run into, according to a source. X-rays showed no structural damage.

It sounds like a best-case scenario for the 40-year-old quarterback who has never missed a playoff game. This doesn’t sound like something that will threaten his status for Sunday’s game.
But it’s a report that has to make fans worried, especially in the wake of seeing backup Jimmy Garoppolo being traded midseason.
The report does not mention who was involved in the practice collision with Brady.
