Tom Brady jammed his throwing hand at Wednesday's practice when he was accidentally run into by a teammate, according to Karen Guregian of The Herald.

Despite winning five Super Bowls, the Patriots have historically struggled against the New York Giants in the postseason that included two Super Bowl losses.

The injury was disclosed ahead of the team's AFC Championship Game matchup with the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday.

The Patriots are now dealing with a step up in competition by facing the Jaguars in the AFC Championship, according to the Providence Journal.

Brady did not appear for his scheduled news conference Wednesday afternoon due to a meeting with a medical team.

The Herald reported that X-rays showed no structural damage and the injury would not keep Brady from playing in the game.

In addition to Brady, offensive lineman LaAdrian Waddle, defensive tackle Alan Branch and running backs Rex Burkhead and Mike Gillislee were all limited with knee injuries.

The 40-year-old has never missed a playoff start during his 18-year career.

Brady has been on and off the injury report at times this season - for an Achilles and his left shoulder.
