Hand injury limits Patriots QB Tom Brady in Wednesday's practice

And tomorrow's Sunday. And shortly after 3:05 p.m. we should have some idea of what, if anything, this mystery injury is going to mean to the Patriots' chances of advancing to yet another Super Bowl.

All of this may have led to Brady donning gloves to hide the injury while allowing him to get used to playing with a glove on for Sunday's game. This season he's relied heavily on Rob Gronkowski. It is still Josh McDaniels calling plays. But it could also be the Patriots hiding something from the media, as well as the Jaguars. If the game against the Patriots becomes another shootout, Jacksonville might not be so lucky twice in a row.

The Jaguars are not flinching. So when Elway, the Broncos' general manager, led a charge to sign Campbell, albeit at a number below what the Jaguars offered, it gave Campbell pause. "We have put a lot of time and effort in, so this is an opportunity we feel like we deserve and we have prepared for".

"I don't want to be the one to say I told you so, but I told you so", said Jaguars tight end Marcedes Lewis after win in Pittsburgh. Then 30 years old, the ace pass rusher made it clear he wanted to make $15 million in average annual salary.

Following the NFL's season of carnage that claimed the likes of, among others, Aaron Rodgers, Richard Sherman, Kam Chancellor, J.J. Watt, DeShaun Watson, Odell Beckham Jr. and Joe Thomas, this year's final four all overcame not only the odds - "Minneapolis Miracle, anyone?" - but devastating injuries to key starters. It turned the tide in the AFC, maybe all of football. He passed the "Go" square on the game board, collecting $200 in fake cash as he pondered where he would make real millions. While it's not clear how the injury exactly happened, multiple outlets reported that it came on a play where Brady executed a handoff. The AFC Championship Game Odds have the Patriots listed as the favorites to pick up the win here.

"We're going to continue to get ready for Jacksonville all the way through", coach Bill Belichick said when asked if not having Brady in Thursday's practice was a hindrance to the team's preparation.

On the flip side, a Vikings loss could cause falling ticket prices for the February 4 game at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, brokers and sellers say. We had five as a team.

Yeah, we're over two days away. While that could be to protect that player from fan and media backlash, it's worth noting that if Brady's hand injury wasn't serious, then there would be no backlash to worry about. With Brady healthy, the Patriots haven't been the underdog since 2014. Friday was the last day the Patriots would be available for reporters before Sunday's game.

Speaking of Atlanta, the January 8 2018 College Football Playoff National Championship could give a glimpse of what a home fan base might do for the Super Bowl, said Cameron Papp, StubHub communications manager. "He's handsome and he's good at football".

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady will start his 12th today. "This is a big game". Since taking over as general manager a little more than six years ago, he has built arguably the NFL's most-talented defense, primarily through the draft.

A year after they finished with a 3-13 record and fired their head coach, the Jaguars won their first AFC South title, earned their first playoff victory since the 2007 season and are now at this stage of the postseason for the first time since the 1999 season.
