Well, we weren't lying when we stated that Brady was set to play tonight, but Tom E. Curran of Comcast Sports New England provided us with an explanation for Brady' absence.
Brady was fully expected to play, but apparently he cut his hand open with scissors trying to remove something from his cleat. No reports yet on whether or not he needed stitches, but an odd injury for the future Hall of Famer while he endures an awkward training camp. Brady probably wants to fast forward to Week Five and just be done with this suspension; the cut thumb and missed start just makes him that much angrier.
