New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick has a black eye and he won’t tell us why!
The four-time Super Bowl-winning head coach showed up to Tuesday’s weekly press conference with a shiner above his left eye.

Not surprisingly, Belichick wasn’t willing to admit how he got the black eye. Instead he decided to be grumpy about the whole thing, leaving us all guessing what it could have been.
“I don't think we need to list the coaches on the injury report,” Belichick said, via ESPN. “But I'm sure if we're required to do it, we'll do it.”
That’s classic Bill, not answering reporters’ questions while passive aggressively taking a shot at the league. You know at some point in his coaching career he’s uttered the sentence, “What do they want next? For us to list coaches on the injury report?”
It’s doubtful Bill actually got into a fight. He probably just dropped his Life Alert or something.
