Report: X-rays on Tom Brady's throwing hand negative after collision at practice

New England quarterback Tom Brady gave Patriots fans a scare Wednesday when he skipped a scheduled news conference and was limited in practice in preparation for Sunday’s AFC championship matchup against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Details on what happened were sparse, but a Boston Herald report shed some light on the situation.

It sounds like a best-case scenario for the 40-year-old quarterback who has never missed a playoff game. This doesn’t sound like something that will threaten his status for Sunday’s game.

But it’s a report that has to make fans worried, especially in the wake of seeing backup Jimmy Garoppolo being traded midseason.
