Tom Brady (hand) is listed as questionable for Sunday's AFC Championship game against Jacksonville.
Brady returned to a limited practice Friday. He needed four stitches to his knuckle after hitting a teammate's helmet on Wednesday but isn't dealing with any structural damage.

Tom Brady (hand) declined to say if he'll play in Sunday's AFC Championship game.

Brady confirmed he returned to practice Friday but didn't offer much on his status. There should be more clarity when the Patriots release their injury report. Brady is expected to be fine for Sunday's matchup with Jacksonville.

Tom Brady (hand) returned to practice Friday.

This has only been a story because there are four teams left in the playoffs, so we have to talk about something. Everything is magnified this time of year. Brady will be fine for the AFC Championship game against the Jaguars.
Jan 19 - 12:06 PM

Tom Brady (hand) remained sidelined at Thursday's practice.

The Boston Globe reported that Brady had resumed practicing, but the team evidently didn't feel he did enough to earn a "limited" tag. Brady was again held back from the media Thursday after being scheduled to talk, while backup Brian Hoyer was cagey about the starter's status. It remains nearly impossible to believe that Brady will miss Sunday's AFC Championship Game, but his status cannot be taken for granted. We should get something resembling clarity on Friday.

Tom Brady (hand) is practicing Thursday.

Brady jammed his throwing hand when a teammate ran into him during Wednesday's practice. There never seemed to be much concern about the injury, however, with multiple reports saying he "should be okay." This practice backs that up. It would be a shock if Brady is not ready to face the Jaguars on Sunday.
Jan 18 - 12:26 PM

A source told ESPN Patriots reporter Mike Reiss that Tom Brady's injured hand "should be okay" for Sunday's AFC title game versus Jacksonville.

It's believed Brady jammed his throwing hand when a teammate accidentally ran into him on the practice field. Reports indicate it was a minor injury, although Brady may sit out Thursday's practice as a precaution. Particularly after they traded Jimmy Garoppolo and Jacoby Brissett, the Patriots badly need Brady under center. Their fallback option would be journeyman Brian Hoyer.

Updating an earlier report, Tom Brady hurt his right hand during Wednesday's practice.

According to Karen Guregian of the Boston Herald, Brady jammed his hand after a teammate accidentally ran into him. Brady went for X-rays but was cleared of any structural damage. It's never good when a quarterback hurts his throwing hand, but we'd still expect Brady to be under center for Sunday's AFC Championship tilt versus Jacksonville.
Jan 17 - 6:09 PM

Tom Brady (hand) was limited at Wednesday's practice.

The injury is to Brady's throwing hand. His presence at practice, albeit in a limited capacity, would suggest it's nothing serious. Brady was brilliant in the Divisional Round (337 yards, three touchdowns) but will face a much stiffer challenge against Jacksonville's league-best defense in Sunday's AFC title game.
Jan 17 - 4:30 PM

Tom Brady completed 35-of-53 passes for 337 yards and three touchdowns in the Patriots' Divisional Round blowout win over the Titans, 35-14.

He’s now thrown for 300-plus yards in 13 career playoff games, a league record. Brady’s first touchdown went to James White on a five-yard shovel pass following consecutive big hookups with Dion Lewis. Finding a dominant rhythm from there, Brady threw his second score to Chris Hogan from four yards out. His third TD went to Rob Gronkowski in the fourth frame. All told, New England gained 186 yards from scrimmage and scored 21 points in the second quarter alone, creating a deficit Tennessee was never going to overcome. Despite a slow regular season finish, Brady was surgical on Saturday night, picking apart the Titans on short to intermediate throws. He’ll get a better AFC Championship matchup if the Steelers beat the Jaguars on Sunday.
Jan 13 - 11:40 PM

After a months-long dive into the Patriots' 2017 dynamics, ESPN's Seth Wickersham reports there is "a palpable sense in the building that this might be the last year together for this group."

In a remarkable article, Wickersham reports that coach Bill Belichick was essentially forced into trading Jimmy Garoppolo by Tom Brady and owner Robert Kraft, and that Brady's personal trainer Alex Guerrero has created friction with wide-ranging effects. Wickersham came away convinced that this could be Belichick's final season in New England. A "clear the air" meeting between the big three was reportedly scheduled and then canceled in December. It is now expected to take place after the postseason. The whole article, which can be found at the link below, needs to be read.
Jan 5 - 2:29 AM

Tom Brady completed 18-of-37 passes for 190 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's Week 17 win over the Jets.

Brady wasn’t at best, posting his lowest completion percentage in a game since Week 1 while having season-lows in passing yardage and yards per pass attempt (5.1). Brady was relatively quiet over the final five weeks of the season, throwing six touchdowns to five interceptions over that span without a 300-yard passing game since Week 11. Despite the finish of his season not meeting the lofty standards he’s set, Brady will be the top option for all quarterbacks during fantasy playoff leagues with the Patriots as the favorites to reach the Super Bowl in the AFC.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport confirms the Patriots are "playing their stars" against the Jets in Week 17.

The Patriots need a win to lock up home-field advantage in the AFC, so Sunday will be business as usual in Foxboro. New England will likely rest Chris Hogan (shoulder) and James White (ankle), but their other starters including Tom Brady, Rob Gronkowski, Dion Lewis and Brandin Cooks will play without any restrictions. All will be appealing DFS options against the Jets, who have lost five of their last six and have struggled mightily without Josh McCown (I.R., hand).

Tom Brady (shoulder, Achilles) was removed from the Week 17 injury report.

Brady missed some practice time with an injury to his non-throwing shoulder. His status was never in doubt.
Fri, Dec 29, 2017 05:07:00 PM

Tom Brady (shoulder, Achilles) returned to a limited practice on Thursday.

Brady sat out Wednesday, but there was never much doubt about his availability for this week. That said, the Patriots could sit him down early if the game gets out of hand. New England is currently favored by 15.5 points.
Thu, Dec 28, 2017 12:30:00 PM

Tom Brady (Achilles, shoulder) didn't practice on Wednesday.

The injury is to Brady's non-throwing shoulder. Brady hasn't missed a game due to injury since 2008, a streak that should continue against the Jets in Week 17. New England needs a win Sunday to secure home-field advantage throughout the AFC playoffs.
