By all indications, Tom Brady should be just fine for the AFC championship game after reportedly suffering a cut during practice Wednesday on his right hand that needed stitches.

Brady missed practice on Thursday, was limited on Friday and is officially listed as questionable for the game.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter,  Brady “probably" will wear a glove just to protect the stitches, but no final decision has been made. The quarterback has been on record saying he's not a fan of wearing a glove on his throwing hand.

"Early in my career I tried using a glove on my throwing hand a little bit. It didn’t go too well," Brady said in December. "I think it’s better without. But still, it’s tricky."

It does not appear the Patriots are concerned with the injury impacting Brady's play.

According to Ed Werder, who is part of the radio broadcast on Westwood One, the Patriots don’t expect it to be a significant factor in his performance.

Multiple reports said Brady was throwing the ball well at practice on Friday.

The Patriots and Jaguars will kickoff at 3:05 p.m.
