Brady: I'm not talking about it.

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 reportedly collided with a teammate on Wednesday, injuring his right hand.

It's a good sign that he was on the practice field Thursday rather than with the trainers receiving treatment, but reporters noticed that Brady was sporting a glove on his right hand.

Normally, the concern about a quarterback not being out at practice on Thursday would be extremely high.

Brady deflected questions on how confident he is that he will play in Sunday's AFC Championship Game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Belichick, however, didn't give many answers. The Jaguars stunned the Pittsburgh in a divisional playoff game to advance the conference championship game and their defense could cause problems for the Patriots. If something goes wrong, Brian Hoyer is the Patriots' lone backup quarterback.

Brady is scheduled to have press availability on Friday, barring any last-minute changes.

The good news for New England: Brady and the Patriots won the Super Bowl roughly five months after the 2014 news conference.

We will obviously have more updates as they become available.
