Brady ready for game time

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - Tom Brady is hoping for a starring role. Bill Belichick might allow a cameo.

The New England quarterback is eager to get back in the game after spending nearly a year recovering from a left knee injury suffered just 7:33 into the 2008 season opener against Kansas City.

That's a little more than 7 minutes of NFL playing time since the Patriots fell to the New York Giants in the Super Bowl in 2008.

No wonder Brady is excited about the Patriots' preseason game tomorrow at Lincoln Financial Field.

"Yeah, I'm ready, I think everybody's ready," said Brady, who played himself in an episode of HBO's "Entourage" that aired this week. "We've had a good camp, guys have been working real hard trying to do what coach Belichick's asked. It will be nice to go out and play the Eagles. They really gave it to us last year."

Brady said yesterday that he hadn't spoken with Belichick about his playing time, but said the entire team had been told to be ready to play.

"I'm expecting to play," he said. "There's no reason why I wouldn't. I've been out here and doing everything. It'll be nice to get out there and play some football."

Brady hasn't missed a practice during training camp.
