FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) -New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick stayed true to form Thursday, refusing to discuss Tom Brady's health a few days after the quarterback was photographed limping through New York with a cast on his right foot.
``I don't have any comment on it. I don't have any comment on it,'' he said in a news conference before the Patriots held their first practice in preparation for the Feb. 3 Super Bowl against the New York Giants.
Will Brady practice?
``We'll go out there. I don't know,'' Belichick said with a grin, seeming to delight in being nonresponsive.
``The injury report will be out next Wednesday and we're excited to get that to you,'' he said to laughter from reporters, ``filled out completely and I can't wait to get that to you because I know you're anxious for it.''
Brady, this season's NFL MVP, has been dogged by photographers outside the New York City apartment of his supermodel girlfriend since the photographs surfaced Monday. He was later seen walking without a cast. Brady reportedly has a mild high ankle sprain.
Belichick said Brady is rarely distracted, on or off the field.
``I think Tom's one of the toughest players on our team both mentally and physically,'' the coach said. ``He works hard ... He's very calm. He's a great competitor but he's very calm.''
