FOXBOROUGH — The Patriots might need to add another name to the injury report: Bill Belichick.

The Patriots coach had a swollen left eye when he stepped to the podium Tuesday morning, but didn’t divulge how it came about.

“I think I’ll live,” Belichick said.

Asked initially if he’ll include himself in the formal update of the team’s many maladies — which will come out Wednesday — Belichick wasn’t in much of a joking mood.

“I don’t think we need to list coaches on the injury report,” Belichick said. “But I’m sure if we’re required to do it, we’ll do it.”
