It doesn't appear Tom Brady will play in Thursday's preseason opener against the Redskins.

According to multiple reports, although things could change like they sometimes have in the past, Brady is not expected to play in the contest. This means there will be a lot of Brian Hoyer and Danny Etling running the offense.

Brady hasn't played in the preseason opener in three of the last four years.

The 41-year-old hasn't seen as much action as in the past during training camp, but with the regular season less than a month away that likely will change soon.
