Patriots nation was sent somewhat of scare on Wednesday with news that Tom Brady would not take part in a weekly press conference due to medical issues. It was later noted that Brady suffered a hand injury, which kept him from meeting with the media and limited him in practice.
While the injury itself is said to be minor, there’s always a concern when talking about a quarterback’s throwing hand. That’s magnified when we’re talking about cold January weather in New England and the best quarterback in league history.
The good news here is that Brady was back at practice on Thursday.
Tom Brady, with both hands intact, is here at practice. Alive and well. He’s wearing a glove on his right hand, which is atypical.

Somewhat alarmingly, he was seen with a glove covering his throwing hand.

Taking on the AFC’s best defense in the conference championship on Sunday, this is definitely something to keep an eye on. If it impacts Brady at all, Pro Bowl Jaguars corners Jalen Ramsey and A.J. Bouye will be ready to pounce.
