Tom Brady has had 12 stitches on right hand removed

My message to the team is just that. For him to be back in September, might be a little iffy, right, so you've got the September games.

Blount and his teammate Eagles defensive end Chris Long, who was also with the Patriots in 2016, have a chance to do something something only four National Football League players have done.

One of those heartbroken Vikings fans is Minh Huynh.

Brady did not appear on the team's injury report on Wednesday, but was a limited participant on Thursday before being a full participant on Friday.

Capping his second season with a championship and delivering the Eagles their first Lombardi Trophy was his destiny. We've got a bunch of underdogs. "To not only get here but to win this thing". That's why I think they've been pumping up Nate Sudfeld so much, is because they probably know they can't afford to bring Foles back. But people are already looking ahead to a time when Nick Foles isn't the Eagles quarterback anymore. It's possible Gronkowski joined the team after the media portion of practice was over, but that's doubtful. He's added six catches and 83 yards in two playoff games.

Foles has spoken about the advice Wentz has provided, just as he did for Wentz when the roles were reversed. Jordan spent the bulk of his 13-year Bulls tenure playing alongside a future Hall of Famer in Scottie Pippen.

Meanwhile the Eagles, under Head Coach Doug Pederson, seek their first title in 58 years - the last time the Eagles won the NFL Championship was before the Super Bowl era (1960). If the Patriots lose, the statue of the undefeated Rocky Marciano outside of Brockton High School will be dressed in Eagles gear, said Brockton Mayor Bill Carpenter. "But the whole key, it's a very fine line". And you just can't get caught up in what they do.


"That was cool, but the coolest thing was my son was there", Long said.

New England's defense was masterful against the "Greatest Show on Turf", playing an ultra-physical style that eventually led to some rules changes on how defenders could interact with receivers. The Giants won all five of the games he started - the last two of the regular season and three in the postseason - to cement his place as one of the few late-season backups to emerge with a ring.

Seventy-two-year-old Susan Collesidis was never a football fan until she heard Carson Wentz talk about his faith. But after contemplating retirement, he took the Chiefs' No. 2 job, returned to Philly in 2017, and is now one victory from living out every quarterback's dream.

"When I left, I knew certainly that New England could be in the situation [in the Super Bowl], and I'd have to live with that if I wasn't", he said.

"For myself, it was just leave all the outside stuff and put it away", he said. I could literally watch film all day. "But I got through that pretty quick".

Perspective also helped. Wentz is only 25. While other Gophers have played in a Super Bowl since, Spaeth is the last one to win one.
