ESPN is reporting that Tom Brady will start today in the AFC title game vs the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Brady hand injury has been the talk of the week leading up to the game. Patriots beat reporters are now saying that Brady injured his throwing hand during Wednesday's practice. It happened during a handoff to running back Rex Birkhead. He cut his hand of Birkhead's helmet and stitches were required.

Brady has been wearing gloves all week and could be wearing them today.
