It was originally thought that Tom Brady would not see the field in the New England Patriots' preseason opener Thursday, but those plans may have changed. According to ESPN's Mike Reiss, the Patriots are still contemplating whether or not to play Brady against the Packers on Thursday.
In addition to Reiss' report, Brady also shared a Facebook post on Thursday, hinting that he may be on the field tonight. The caption read: "Good to be HOME! Helmet is on… I’ll see you tonight Gillette Stadium!!!"
