"We'll see," he said when asked about his status for Sunday's AFC Championship game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

The issues started on Wednesday when Brady was included on the Patriots injury report. He met with medical staff while his teammates and Coach Belichick spoke with the media.

When asked why he was wearing gloves, he responded, "I've worn them before."

He declined to discuss his injury or anything about practice.

"Why are you wearing gloves inside?" one reporter asked.

He replied, "she already asked that."

His teammates, including center David Andrews and backup quarterback Brian Hoyer, avoided the issue of Brady's injury.

Karen Guregian of the Boston Herald reported Brady jammed his hand during practice and x-rays showed no structural damage.

Brady was spotted at practice Friday wearing red gloves on both of his hands, but it wasn't clear if he did any working out.

He was listed on the Patriots injury report as non-participant at practice Thursday and canceled a second media availability later that day.

Brady has missed practices this season due to various minor injuries, but has not missed any games due to injury since 2008.
