Brady cuts himself out of preseason start (Reuters)

(Reuters) – New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady knocked himself out of Thursday’s preseason game against the Chicago Bears after he cut his thumb on a pair of scissors by accident, according to media reports. Brady, who will miss the first four Patriots regular-season games while serving his Deflategate suspension, was trying to pry something from the bottom of his cleat prior to taking the field when he cut himself, according to CSN New England. Don Yee, Brady’s agent, told that “an accident occurred and Tom will be OK in time.” Brady left Gillette Stadium shortly after the incident.
