New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady sustained an injury to his right throwing hand in a minor collision in practice Wednesday, according to a source.

A source close to Brady said it is possible the injury could affect him slightly in Sunday’s AFC Championship Game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, but Brady is moving forward with the belief that he should be OK overall.

A second source said Brady’s hand “should be OK.”

Brady was officially limited in practice, according to the team’s participation report, and underwent tests with the team’s medical staff afterward. He had been scheduled to hold a news conference at that time.

The next benchmark for Brady will be Thursday at 12:15 p.m. ET, which is the team’s next scheduled practice.

According to a report from the Boston Herald, the injury occurred when one of Brady’s teammates accidentally ran into him and jammed his hand. X-rays were taken and revealed no structural damage, according to the Herald.

Brady has been on and off the injury report at times this season — for an Achilles and left shoulder injury. This is the first time he has landed on the injury report due to his throwing hand.

Players who were asked about Brady later in the day said they weren’t aware of anything that happened injury-wise at practice.

“He looked like the same old Tom out there,” said cornerback Eric Rowe.

The Patriots have just two quarterbacks on their roster, Brady and veteran backup Brian Hoyer. They don’t have a quarterback on their practice squad.

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 Patriots host the Jaguars in the conference title game Sunday at 3:05 p.m. ET on CBS.

Two Yamam fighters wounded in overnight Jenin shootout

Israeli forces continued operating in the Palestinian city throughout the night, where they encountered violent rioting, with hundreds of Palestinians hurling stones at the troops. IDF and Border Police forces used crowd dispersal measures against the rioters.


Early in the raid, Palestinian sources reported that dozens of IDF vehicles entered the city and confiscated security cameras at gas stations.



The operation in Jenin was made possible thanks to significant and wide-scale intelligence activity by the Shin Bet and IDF. At first, security forces thought the perpetrators of the attack had fled to Nablus, which is near Havat Gilad, where the attack took place. But new information ontained Wednesday indicated the cell members escaped to Jenin instead.



Son of a senior Hamas commander

The killed terrorist, Hamas member Ahmed Jarrar, 22, was the son of a senior Hamas commander in the West Bank, Naser Jarrar, who was killed in a clash with Israeli troops in 2002.



The father, Naser Jarrar, spent time in Israeli prison on and off between the late 1980s and 1996. He was in charge of recruiting terrorists and orchestrating suicide bombings during the second intifada, including a massive planned attack on a high-rise building, which was thwarted.


He escaped an assassination attempt in early 2001 only to be injured in May of that year in a “work accident” while planting explosives, losing both of his legs and one of his hands. Despite his disability, he continued his terror activity.



In 2002, IDF and Border Police troops surrounding the house in Tubas, northeast of Nablus, that the senior Jarrar was hiding in, bringing tanks and bulldozers in tow. The troops called on Jarrar to exit the home, but were met with silence. They eventually shot and killed him.


“He was from Hamas’s premier league, among engineer Yahya Ayyash and others,” a Palestinian security official said at the time.
