Patriots QB Tom Brady expected to sit out preseason opener against Lions

NBC Boston

If you tune into the New England Patriots' preseason opener expecting to see Tom Brady in action, prepare to be disappointed.

The 42-year-old quarterback isn't expected to play Thursday night against the Detroit Lions at Ford Field, the Boston Herald's Karen Guregian reported Wednesday.

Lest you think Brady is making another "statement" after his cryptic contract comments and recent real estate maneuverings: Brady hasn't played a Week 1 preseason game since 2015 and typically sits out at least two of the Patriots' four exhibition contests.
