FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — The Patriots say quarterback Tom Brady did not attend a scheduled AFC championship news conference Wednesday because he was meeting with the team medical staff for a right hand injury.
According to New England's first injury report of the week, Brady was a limited participant in the practice held earlier in the day.
It was the Patriots' first practice in preparation for Sunday's conference title game against Jacksonville. Defensive lineman Alan Branch and running backs Mike Gillislee and Rex Burkhead also were limited by knee injuries.
