    • When asked at a press conference...

      When asked at a press conference Friday how confident he is about playing in Sunday's AFC championship game against the Jaguars, Brady (right hand) replied, "we'll see," Mike Reiss of ESPN.com reports.

      Analysis: Meanwhile, the QB -- who was sporting red gloves on both of his hands -- declined to provide any details pertaining to his injured throwing hand. While we would still be very surprised if Brady -- who practiced Friday -- didn't start Sunday's game, it seems inevitable that he'll head into the weekend listed as questionable on the Patriots' final injury report, which is due to be released later in the day. It's notable that Brian Hoyer is the only other QB on the team's 53-man roster, with the New England practice squad not offering any depth at the position either.

    • Landry's agent said the receiver is...

      Landry's agent said the receiver is not willing to take a hometown discount to stay in Miami, Joe Schad of the Palm Beach Post reports.

      Analysis: Landry's agent, Damarious Bilbo, also went on record to defend recent criticisms against the receiver by saying Landry is an emotional and high-energy player who serves as a valuable spark plug for the offense. Regardless, Landry will be an unrestricted free agent at the end of the league year and, considering he's approaching his age-26 season in 2018, his next contract could be his last opportunity to break the bank. The LSU product is likely looking for a long-term contract in the same price range as fellow 2014 second-rounder Davante Adams, who recently inked a four-year, $58.75 million extension with the Packers. If Landry and the Dolphins are unable to strike a deal, it's possible Miami could slap him with either the franchise or transition tags, which would pay Landry about $16.5 million or $14.2 million, respectively.

      Thielen (lower back) will be listed as questionable for Sunday's NFC championship game against the Eagles.

      Analysis: Thielen returned to practice in a limited fashion Thursday after sitting out Wednesday's session, and given the magnitude of Sunday's contest, we'd expect him to suit up this weekend, barring any setbacks. Thielen was on the field for 77 of a possible 81 snaps on offense in last Sunday's divisional-round win over the Saints, en route to hauling in six of nine targets for 74 yards. Assuming he plays against the Eagles, Thielen would be in line to start at wideout for the Vikings opposite Stefon Diggs, whose TD catch on the final play of last week's game allowed Minnesota to move one game away from a Super Bowl berth.

    • Jim Owczarski and Paul Dehner Jr....

      Jim Owczarski and Paul Dehner Jr. of the Cincinnati Enquirer relay that Hill (ankle) seems unlikely to return to the Bengals.

      Analysis: Hill, who is bouncing back from season-ending ankle surgery, previously indicated that he "should be back to (himself) "in January, noting that he elected to address his ankle woes back in November in order to put himself in the best possible position heading into free agency. The Enquirer report projects the possibility of Hill returning to the Bengals at one percent. That sounds reasonable, given that the team drafted Joe Mixon last April and still has Giovani Bernard under contract through 2019.

      Gipson (foot) is officially being ruled as questionable for Sunday's AFC championship against New England, Mike Kaye of FirstCoastNews.com reports.

      Analysis: Gipson sported a walking boot early in the week after aggravating his foot amidst the Jaguars' 45-42 triumph over the Steelers last Sunday. The former Pro Bowl free safety hasn't missed a game since the 2015 season, but the injury had a visible effect on him as he was only able to play 44 of 78 defensive snaps in the divisional round, recording just one tackle. If Gipson is unable to go against the Patriots, third-year man out of San Jose State, Peyton Thompson would likely step in during his absence.
