ET on Thursday, the New England Patriots posted a tweet that caused nervousness among their most loyal fans.
Quarterback Tom Brady, with an injury to his right hand, did not participate in the practice.
Nothing less than three days of the AFC Championship Game.
The Patriots have a mini-crisis and they can not blame anyone but themselves if this issue becomes the worst possible scenario, that Brady battles and the defending Super Bowl champions lose to the Jacksonville Jaguars.

If this happens, the Patriots will be subject to massive criticism in the offseason and this would be justified, because they traded the best insurance policy in the NFL, to Jimmy Garoppolo, for 50 cents.
Coach Bill Belichick may be the smartest guy in American football history, but he made a mistake by swapping Garoppolo to the San Francisco 49ers for a collegiate second-round pick. Forget the long-term implications and focus on the now.
In a Super Bowl attitude or failure, which is always adopted in Foxborough, Belichick decided to take the option “Brady or failure” to negotiate Garoppolo in a controversial exchange.
Brady has had an impressive campaign – he is probably voted MVP of the NFL for the third time in his illustrious career – but he is 40 years old and football is a contact sport.
The players are injured and Brady hurt his famous right hand to chicar with a partner on Wednesday. No way he will not play against the Jaguars, but if he suddenly starts throwing like Blake Bortles, everyone will realize that he is not well.
Brady’s hand will get more attention in the media than Curt Schilling’s bloody right ankle at the ankle in the 2004 Major League Playoffs.
So what?
Worse, how about Brady aggravating the injury and can not finish the game?
Belichick will have no choice but to turn to Brian Hoyer, whose only Playoff experience was a disaster. As a starter with the Houston Texans in 2015, he suffered four interceptions and threw for 136 yards in a 30-0 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs.
