Asked If He'll Play Sunday, Brady Says, 'We'll see'

Forget the threat of a federal government shutdown, the only thing on the minds of a lot of New Englanders Friday is whether star quarterback Tom Brady will play in Sunday’s AFC Championship Game. 

Brady, who has been limited in practice all week with an injury to his right hand, spoke to reporters Friday for the first time in a couple of days, but did not have a whole lot to say. 

Asked if it was 'thumbs up or down' for playing Sunday, Brady responded, " We'll see."   He declined to say if he had thrown footballs during practice.    

Brady wore gloves during practice and at the podium during his news conference.  

With the exception of the entire 2008 season, when he was hurt in the first game, Brady has never missed a start because of injury.

The record-setting tenure of Springfield Mayor Domenic Sarno. The 2011 tornado and its recovery that remade the largest city in Western Massachusetts. The fallout from the deadly COVID outbreak at the Holyoke Soldiers Home. Those are just a few of the thousands and thousands of stories WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill has covered for WAMC in his nearly 17 years with the station.
