The #New England Patriots announced that veteran quarterback #Tom Brady cancelled his Wednesday news conference due to a medical issue.

Brady appeared on the Patriots' weekly injury report several times during the latter half of the regular season with both an Achilles tendon and left shoulder injury.

The Patriots have made it to the AFC championship game for seven straight seasons.

While the cancellation of his media session caused a bit of a stir on Wednesday afternoon, chances are Brady will be suiting up on Sunday when the Patriots play for a trip to Super Bowl LII. According to The Boston Globe's Jim McBride, the Patriots quarterback "didn't seem hampered in any way" during the part of Wednesday's practice that media were allowed to watch.

The Jaguars had a full injury report, too.

Defensive lineman Alan Branch and running backs Mike Gillislee and Rex Burkhead also were limited by knee injuries.

Brady has been spotted flexing and shaking his hand often during games when he's taking hits. While he has missed practices throughout the year, he has not missed any starts.
