Before today’s AFC championship game between the Patriots and the Jaguars there has been a lot of speculation about the status of Tom Brady’s injured hand.

Per sources, Patriots QB Tom Brady suffered a collateral ligament sprain in his right thumb, in addition to the cut. Threw well on Friday, expected to be good to go today. But that’s where the concern over his functionality would’ve been.

QB Tom Brady, who will play today vs. the #Jaguars, made half of his throws on Friday without a glove, sources say, despite several stitches. One source described him as “ripping it.” In other words, Brady looked great and ready.
QB Tom Brady gets his wish in the warm weather — no glove on his throwing hand for warmups. Some tape for the stitches, though.
As Brady made his way on the field on Sunday, one pesky cameraman tried to catch an up close glimpse at the Patriots QB’s hand. Brady got pretty pissed and fired off an expletive at the cameraman.
Update: Brady is still angry at the cameraman.
Seems like Brady is pretty fired up to play today, hand wrap and all.
