New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was reportedly scheduled to get 12 stitches removed from his injured throwing hand last week ahead of the team's clash with the Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowl LII next Sunday.
Brady originally suffered the injury as a result of a practice mishap during the week leading up to the AFC Championship Game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Long, a veteran defensive end who played for the Patriots a year ago but will try to beat his old team with the Birds in Sunday's Super Bowl, told Pardon My Take he would not go to the White House in the event of an Eagles win.
"They've been great on special teams, they have a great offense and they have a great defense", he said.
Brady was asked how he'll balance focusing on the Patriots' game plan while getting to know the Eagles.
Japan, China agree to resume reciprocal meetings
Following the talks, Kono met with Chinese Premier Li Keqiang and senior foreign policy adviser State Councilor Yang Jiechi. South Korea was the previous host of the trilateral summit in 2015.
The Patriots held practice on the lower field, their last outdoor session before they hit the road. They have one of the worst scoring defenses in the National Football League, and that could hurt them in the Super Bowl.
Brady also declined to discuss his documentary "Tom vs".
Rob Gronkowski still looks likely to play in Super Bowl LII on Sunday, but he won't be at the game's biggest media extravaganza.
On the other side of the ball for the Eagles is Nick Foles.
Gronkowski, who tallied 69 catches for 1,084 yards and eight touchdowns in the regular season, will play an important role as the Eagles have had issues dealing with tight ends.
