Brady ready after 'silly accident' with scissors cuts thumb (The Associated Press)

Tom Brady says he’s ready to play after a ”silly accident” cut his right thumb with a pair of scissors before the Patriots preseason game against the Bears last week. Brady says he missed the first two practices this week for personal reasons, but he’s available and ready to play as New England prepares to play at Carolina. Brady said he wanted to play, but coach Bill Belichick made the decision he’d sit out.
