Tom Brady is staying mum on his status for the AFC
championship game after suffering a right hand injury earlier in the week.

Brady said a bit contentiously only ”We’ll see” on Friday when asked whether
he would play in Sunday’s conference title game against Jacksonville.

The quarterback wore red gloves and responded to several other questions
about how much he practiced or how he sustained the injury by saying ”I’m not
talking about that.”

Brady is listed as questionable for Sunday after being a limited participant
in practice Friday. He was also limited on Wednesday. He sat out practice

period open to reporters. He usually only wears a glove on his non-throwing

One thing Brady was clear about was the test he expects froimagem a Jaguars unit
ranked second in the NFL in total and scoring defense.

”It’s a very unique challenge,” Brady said. ”I think their front three, their
linebackers, are very instinctive and very fast. And great cover guys in the
secondary. Ball-hawking defense. They strip it off you, they sack you. … So
they’re a good defense.”

Brady appeared on the Patriots’ weekly injury report several times during the
latter half of this season with injuries to both his Achilles tendon and his
left shoulder. The four-time Super Bowl MVP has never missed a playoff start
during his 18-year career.

”Tom always tends to show up in big games. This is a big game,” receiver
Danny Amendola said. ”(He’s) super tough. The toughest. He’s a
warrior Cheap DJ

, he’s a competitor and there’s really only one reason
why he’s here, and that’s to play football. ”

Jacksonville is preparing like Brady will be in the huddle as usual Sunday.
Jaguars defensive tackle Marcell Dareus said typical methods of rattling a
quarterback don’t apply when it comes to him.

”You can hit Brady, but hitting him isn’t what’s going to get to him. It’s
constantly being that gnat in his face. He just hates that gnat just always
around,” said Dareus, who might be more familiar than any Jacksonville player
with Brady, having spent six-plus seasons with the Bills.

”You sack him he’s going to get up and just keep rolling. He’s that
competitive spirit Jack

, like, `OK, you got me. Now I’m fixing to go throw
this touchdown the next play. Forty yards. You happy about that sack? But there
you go.’ That’s just his mentality. I like it. I love playing against the guy.
He’s phenomenal to watch.”

If for some reason Brady can’t go – no, the Earth won’t stop rotating on its
axis and New England still would show up to play – the Patriots would look to
backup Brian Hoyer. His last playoff start was the antithesis of a Brady
performance. For Houston in its 2015 AFC wild-card matchup with Kansas City,
Hoyer completed 15 of 34 passes for 136 yards, with no touchdowns and five
turnovers (four interceptions) in a 30-0 loss.

midseason when the Patriots traded Jimmy Garoppolo to San Francisco.

”I’m always preparing to play because the truth of reality is you never know
when your name’s gonna be called,” he said Thursday.

The Patriots haven’t called any QB’s name in the postseason other than
Brady’s since the 1990s.

Including the playoffs, the Jaguars scored eight defensive touchdowns this
season, three more than any other team. Cornerback Jalen Ramsey had four
interceptions during the regular season and also had one in the wild-card win
over Buffalo.

He also fully expects to see Brady on the field Sunday.

”He’s going to be out there, he’s going to play Masahiro

, he’s going to play to his best of ability and do
what he does,” Ramsey said.
