Tom Brady hurts hand in 'minor collision' at practice

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady landed on the injury report on Wednesday after a teammate reportedly collided with his right hand.

The collision was apparently serious enough to warrant an X-Ray, though it turned out negative. ESPN's Mike Reiss on Thursday reported that Brady was expected to be OK for Sunday's AFC Championship game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, but that the injury "could affect him slightly."

Brady has been on and off the injury report at times this season -- for an Achilles and left shoulder injury. This is the first time he has landed on the injury report due to his throwing hand.

The Patriots have just two quarterbacks on their roster, Brady and veteran backup Brian Hoyer. They don't have a quarterback on their practice squad.

In addition to Brady, offensive lineman LaAdrian Waddle, defensive tackle Alan Branch and running backs Rex Burkhead and Mike Gillislee were all limited with knee injuries.
