  • Tom Brady injured his hand during practice when a teammate ran into him.
  • The injury was severe enough to prompt Brady to receive X-rays, which did not reveal any structural damage.
  • It was reported that Brady “should be OK” but that the injury “could affect him slightly” when the New England Patriots face the Jacksonville Jaguars in the AFC title game.

Tom Brady injured his hand during a collision with a teammate in practice, according to multiple reports.

Karen Guregian of the Boston Herald reported that Brady “jammed” his hand when a teammate ran into him during a practice on Wednesday. Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network confirmed the report.

The injury was concerning enough that the Patriots had X-rays taken of the hand. The X-rays did not reveal any structural damage, according to Guregian and Rapoport.

Mike Reiss of ESPN later reported that Brady “should be OK” for Sunday’s AFC title game against the Jacksonville Jaguars but that the injury could still affect him.

“Source close to Tom Brady: ‘Hand should be OK,'” Reiss wrote on Twitter. “Could affect him slightly but belief is that he should be good overall.”

Brady was limited during practice and did not attend his regularly scheduled media session on Wednesday.
