    The New England Patriots did not just exit their game against the Kansas City Chiefs as the champions of the AFC Mike Gillislee Color Rush Jersey , they also exited it pretty healthy. No injuries were announced during the overtime contest and a look at the first practice report of the week further confirms that New England is at full strength heading towards the Super Bowl: the team did not list a single player on its first injury report leading up to the title game.Of course, neither the Patriots nor the Los Angeles Rams did practice today so the two lists are more hypothetical in nature. Still, when it comes to the AFC champs and their long-term outlook it can be interpreted as a good sign:Did not participateWhile the Patriots would have had full participation if they had practiced today , the Rams would have missed two players — both core special teamers: safety Blake Countess and kicker Greg Zuerlein are apparently both dealing with foot injuries. Zuerlein, who kicked the game winner against the New Orleans Saints in the NFC title game, was spotted wearing a boot on Monday and will be worth keeping an eye on over the next two weeks.Other than that Vincent Valentine Color Rush Jersey , no players were listed on the report. Patriots head coach Bill Belichick told Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen to “shut the f–k up” in the fourth quarter of Sunday’s game when Thielen took issue with Patriots safety Patrick Chung staying down at the end of a Latavius Murray first down run while the Patriots mulled challenging the spot.It was an exchange that was familiar to Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, who said he’s been in Thielen’s spot before and got a laugh out of watching things play out during Sunday’s game.“I’ve been on the other end of that a few times in my career,” Brady said on WEEI. “Pretty funny. … It’s competitive out there. It’s very feisty and everyone’s emotions are on their sleeves. You say something and there is just an emotional reaction. That was pretty funny.”It’s easier to laugh at such moments when you’re putting the finishing touches on a win and Brady credited “a great performance” by the defense against Thielen and everyone else in purple with making that happen.
