Brady ready for game time
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.
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.
