FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was present at the start of Thursday's practice, wearing red gloves on both hands, which is not the norm for him. Brady's presence at the start of practice comes one day after he was involved in a minor collision in practice that injured his right throwing hand.

Reporters were present for the start of the practice, which included stretching and light running. Quarterbacks did not throw in the time reporters were at practice.

In the days before the Patriots' regular-season finale, which was the coldest regular-season home game in franchise history, Brady had discussed the idea of wearing gloves.

"Early in my career I tried using a glove on my throwing hand a little bit. It didn't go too well. I think it's better without," he said on Dec. 29.

Brady's level of participation in practice will be updated when the team submits its injury report later Thursday. Brady was listed as limited on Wednesday, and he went for medical tests after the practice, which led to him canceling his scheduled press conference that was to air live on the league's television network.

Brady is scheduled to address reporters Thursday at approximately 3:30 p.m. ET.
