FOXBORO — Tom Brady basically told the media to talk to the hand.
More specifically, Brady replied, “I’m not talking about that” to each question about his right hand injury in Friday’s press conference.
MORE ON BRADY'S INJURY
Brady stood at the podium wearing the very red gloves that have been captured in pre-practice photos the last two days. Asked why he was wearing them indoors, Brady replied, “I’ve worn them before.”
The five-time Super Bowl champion was also mum on whether or not he participated in practice Friday, sharing only that he was “out there,” which adds no clarification given that he was on the field before Thursday’s practice but did not participate. Later Friday, Brady was listed as questionable on the injury report. It's the first time he's been questionable for a playoff game in his career.
When asked if he was confident he'd play in Sunday's AFC Championship Game against Jacksonville, he responded: "We'll see."
Brady is believed to have suffered the injury in Wednesday’s practice. Friday’s practice report will be released this afternoon.
