Brady’s Hand Injury, Patriots Killing With Kindness, Keenum And Foles BFF’s

FOOTBALL

Tom Brady suffered a hand injury in practice on Wednesday when a teammate bumped into him. According to reports, the quarterback will be fine, but that’s a scary scenario for the New England Patriots who face the Jacksonville Jaguars on Saturday in the AFC Conference Championship. Brady’s backup is Brian Hoyer.

The Patriots aren’t doing any trash talking this week. Instead, the team is gearing up for their battle with the Jaguars by heaping on the compliments.  Tom Brady posted on twitter, “This is the biggest challenge we’ve faced all year” and Gronkowski tweeted, “It’s the best team we’ve faced all year.”  The Jaguars aren’t taking the “bait” as they were underdogs in the divisional round and now 9-point dark horses against New England. Jaguars’ linebacker Telvin Smith responded with “Bruh “this the oldest trick…pump us up in the media but in the buildin I kno what’s really bein said.”

In the NFC Championship game on Sunday between the Minnesota Vikings and Philadelphia Eagles, there is “real” admiration  between the Vikings QB Case Keenum and Eagles QB Nick Foles. Both players were teammates on the 2015 St. Louis Rams and began this year as their team’s backups. With injuries to the team starters, both players are finding it incredible to be in the limelight. Keenum called Foles one of his best friends and Foles responded by complimenting his friend. “It’s pretty wild. But like I’ve said, Case’s success doesn’t surprise me because we were together, we prepared together and we were around each other every day.”
