Brady's right elbow injury doesn't sound good

  Brady's right elbow injury doesn't sound good It sounds like Tom Brady's right elbow injury wasn't just a tactic by the New England Patriots to psych out the Dallas Cowboys. Brady, who will play today despite being listed as questionable due to an elbow injury, was unable to finish practice on Friday, with backup Jarrett Stidham taking most of the reps afterwards.

A wicked flu bug has swept through the Steelers' facility this week, causing five players to miss practice. The Pittsburgh Steelers are dealing with more than just butterflies ahead of their first AFC Championship Game appearance since 2010.

The Dallas Cowboys are currently preparing to face the defending champion New England Patriots, and at the same time they’ve been ravaged by the flu.

Calvin Watkins of Dallas News shared this nasty news, noting the team has preemptively bolstered star quarterback Dak Prescott with medication to prevent him getting sick, too.

This is a huge game for both teams as they prepare for the stretch run ahead of the playoffs. Dallas, at 6-4, lead the NFC East by just one game over the Philadelphia Eagles. Injuries have been a challenge, and now the flu bug is taking its toll.

Cowboys' Jones: 'I shouldn't be this frustrated'

  Cowboys' Jones: 'I shouldn't be this frustrated' Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones didn't mince his words Sunday after his team once again fell short against a top contender, losing by a score of 13-9 to the New England Patriots. "With the makeup of this team, I shouldn't be this frustrated," said Jones, according to team writer David Helman. The 6-5 Cowboys sit atop the NFC East through 12 weeks but are arguably far from the level of the top teams in a stacked conference. Dallas' six wins have"With the makeup of this team, I shouldn't be this frustrated," said Jones, according to team writer David Helman.

A flu bug has hit the Steelers affecting 15 people, including four players. Mike Florio and Stats weigh in on if that will affect the team's performance when facing the Patriots on Championship Sunday.

Flu bug has swept the Cowboys this week. Joe Thomas and Ben Bloom have it. Rapoport first reported Thursday evening that Vander Esch wasn’t expected to play in Sunday’s road tilt against the New England Patriots due to an ongoing neck stringer, which the Cowboys will “continue to monitor.”

New England, at 9-1, leads all AFC teams and currently holds a two-game lead over the Buffalo Bills in the AFC East. However, quarterback Tom Brady has been frustrated by the offense’s production of late, and he’s now dealing with an elbow injury.

For what it’s worth, we have the Patriots on upset alert this Sunday. But if the flu continues to ravage Dallas’ roster, that prediction could prove a bit too optimistic.

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones again expressed frustration over the state of his team following Thursday night's 31-24 loss to the Chicago Bears. "That score didn't indicate how bad they beat us tonight," said Jones, according to NFL Network's Andrew Siciliano. Dallas fell to 6-7 after suffering its third straight loss but remains atop the weak NFC East.
