Patriots' Brady misses practice with right hand injury

Hand injury limits Patriots QB Tom Brady in Wednesday's practice

When asked if Brady would be a game-time decision, Belichick said, "It's Friday".

Team owner Robert Kraft, who hosted Bledsoe on his private jet to Denver this season, invited the Pats Hall of Famer to take part in tomorrow's festivities. After being a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, the Patriots quarterback sat out Thursday's practice before returning as a limited participant in Friday's practice. All five players are listed as questionable for Sunday; all players aside from Brady are dealing with knee injuries. Mike Garafolo of NFL Media told Good Morning Football that running back #Rex Burkhead inflicted the cut on Brady's hand. A loaded team like Hamilton should be dominating these weak teams. Expect the Patriots offense to try and go to Gronkowski as much as it can. New England QB Tom Brady is 2-0 in the playoffs against Jacksonville, throwing for six TDs and no interceptions.

Whatever in the world will Parcells' former defensive coordinator do if he loses a third chance at his sixth Lombardi Trophy to his tie-and-jacket-wearing former staff mate? The only real question mark is LT Halapoulivaati Vaiatai, who is sure to get a lot of help on Sunday.

Jacksonville's defensive front will give the Patriots problems.

"A couple weeks ago it was, 'Let's talk about an article and ask them, ' " safety Devin McCourty said.

Yet, here they are, 60 minutes from Minneapolis and Super Bowl 52. Of course, the biggest story heading into the game is Brady's right hand and how much he will be impacted by it. At this point, no one really knows.

Perhaps that's going a bit too far. Among the advice: Eats lots of chicken.

I'm not taking Tom Brady's thumb injury seriously. "The Patriots will throw a ton of looks at him". Jags pass-rushers, led by Calais Campbell (14 1/2 sacks) and Yannick Ngakoue (12 sacks), could also force a fumble, as Ngakoue did with his strip-sack of Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. Or are we're going to be able to score?

On Sunday in the AFC Championship Game, these two teams will meet looking to head to Minnesota for Super Bowl LII. So, the Jaguars have to force the issue on the ground to work around his deficiencies.

The New England Patriots will attempt to reach the Super Bowl for the 10th time in franchise history when they host the Jacksonville Jaguars in the AFC Championship Game. Then he dismissed the notion that anyone in Jacksonville felt like the Jags were simply playing with "house money" after surprising the Steelers in the divisional round. Whether that translates into victories on Sunday remains to be seen.

"The moment I got here from the Texans, what I noticed about the vibe in the locker room was this, like, supreme confidence", Ankou said. "He's handsome and he's good at football".

Philadelphia is averaging less than 300 total yards per game in Nick Foles' starts this season. You know, that lovable bunch that made the Final Four once upon a time.

The Jaguars faced two top-10 offenses and won each game, first against the Pittsburgh Steelers (30-9, Week 5) and the San Diego Chargers (20-17, OT, Week 10). The Jaguars have the best defense in the league and the Patriots have the best quarterback, even if he does have a minor injury.

When Belichick met the press, he was comparatively expansive without giving out any more information. With strawberry-averse Tom Brady and hoodie-donning Bill Belichick at the helm, the Patriots have been nigh unstoppable since a shocking Week 1 setback against Kansas City.
