Tom Brady made the New England Patriots injury report after someone reportedly bumped into his throwing hand at practice, the Boston Herald reported.

The star quarterback is preparing to lead the Patriots into the AFC championship game with the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday with a chance to defend their Super Bowl title they won last season. A source told the newspaper that one of Brady's teammates ran into him, jamming his right throwing hand.

The newspaper reported that no structural damage was found in X-rays taken of Brady's hand and was listed as a limited participant in practice Wednesday. The Herald wrote that due to the swelling and soreness of the hand, it was not clear if Brady would practice Thursday.

Brady missed a scheduled Wednesday news conference because he was meeting with the team's medical staff, Boston.com reported.

News of the injury put the Boston media into overdrive. The San Diego Union-Tribune suggested that Brady may have an open dislocation of the PIP (proximal interphalageal joint, the middle joint on the finger).

"This injury most frequently happens to the pinky or ring finger, which would be the least troublesome for a quarterback. The thumb would be most devastating in terms of the ability grip the ball and spin it on passes," the newspaper wrote.

Other Boston-based reporters weighed in on Twitter.

Brady, 40, is having another successful season with New England, completing 66.3 percent of his passes so far this season for 4,577 yards and 32 touchdowns against eight interceptions, according to NFL.com. The Patriots are 14-3 going into the AFC title game against Jacksonville, which is 12-6 on the season.
