Black-eyed Bill Belichick seen walking around Patriots locker room with boxing gloves

Does New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick have a new hobby, or is he just messing around?

One day after appearing at a press conference with a mysterious black eye, for which he offered no insight or explanation, several media members spotted the enigmatic head coach walking around the Patriots locker room with a pair of boxing gloves.

"I think I'll live," Belichick offered about the shiner on Tuesday. "I don't think we need to list the coaches on the injury report. But I'm sure if we're required to do it, we'll do it."

Far as we can tell, Belichick is "probable" for Saturday when the Patriots will host the streaking Kansas City Chiefs in the divisional matchup after the Chiefs dismantled the Texans 30-0 in the wild-card round.
