And when asked why he was wearing them, Brady simply said, "I've worn them before".
More specifically, Brady replied, "I'm not talking about that" to each question about his right hand injury in Friday's press conference.
Rapoport's report comes after his colleague at NFL Media reported something similar - that Brady's hand was a bloody mess at the time of the injury.
Brady is believed to have suffered the injury in Wednesday's practice. The quarterback was listed as "limited" in the team's participation report and skipped his afternoon media availability to visit with medical staff.
