Tom Brady was listed on the injury report Thursday as limited with toe and right elbow injuries.

Listen to your team news NOW.

Appearing on Westwood One Radio Thursday night with Jim Gray, the quarterback downplayed the injuries saying he's "doing pretty good."

"That might be the first time my toe's ever been on the injury report," he said with a bit of a raspy voice, still recovering from Sunday in Houston. "You know us Patriots. We're pretty diligent about listing everything, so I guess we have to make mention of my toe now as well."

Brady added: "Isn't there some HIPAA violation or something like that, when I start talking about all my injuries? I'm doing pretty good. At this time of the year, I'll take it. I'll take anything if I'm still able to go out there and feel like I can play my best. I'm feeling really good, really positive about this week. We have a really great challenge ahead of us."

The Patriots will host the Chiefs Sunday at Gillette Stadium in a very big game when it comes to the AFC playoff picture.

"It is going to be a very, very tough game," he said. "Hopefully we can go out there and play with the fire and energy we have, and go out there and have a great performance."
