The Patriots released their official injury report on Friday afternoon, and it included "game statuses" for players "based on if the game was being played this Sunday". The quarterback is officially on to Super Bowl LII after doctors reportedly removed 12 stitches from his throwing hand.
Brady was injured in practice on the Wednesday before the AFC championship game. For the Eagles, defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan did not participate in practice due to illness, while running back Jay Ajayi was limited due to an ankle issue. X-Rays, though, came back negative. He has also built some strong chemistry with quarterback Tom Brady that has equated to the famed connection piling up 75 career touchdowns, which is the second-most from a quarterback to a tight end in National Football League history. Instead, he had black tape over the wound.
In the days that have followed the New England Patriots reaching Super Bowl 52, there has been much attention towards the health of All-Pro tight end Rob Gronkowski. It remains unclear whether his status for next weekend's Super Bowl meeting with the Philadelphia Eagles is affected.
