Patriots' Brady misses practice with right hand injury

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.

With two days to go until the game, Brady's hand injury remains a mystery and a subject drawing more curiosity from the National Football League world.

Brady has two more days to heal before the Patriots play in the AFC Championship game on Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars. You have to actually play the game to determine it.

Brady said the Jaguars present a "great challenge" for the Patriots heading into Sunday's game. "Playing against a really good team that's good in all phases, we're going to have to play really well".
