FOXBOROUGH — Bill Belichick shook hands with Bills coach Doug Marrone and former Patriots assistant coach Pepper Johnson after the game, then immediately headed down the staircase behind the Patriots’ bench and retreated to the locker room. Instead of holding his customary postgame press conference with the media, Belichick was in the training room, being looked at by team trainers and a doctor. He held his news conference more than an hour after the game, via teleconference.

“Nothing serious, just a little thing to look at with the trainers and a doctor,” Belichick said. “It’s no big deal. I don’t want to get into it.”
