The New England Patriots are getting ready to suit up for their second preseason game against the Tennessee Titans on Saturday night and will do so without Tom Brady.
New England’s veteran quarterback, who got heavy reps during joint practices this week with the Titans, will be sitting out for the second straight week of the preseason, according to a report from ESPN’s Mike Reiss.

New England has a short turnaround between their second and third games of the preseason as Carolina visits Gillette Stadium next Thursday. Brady will likely play a hefty amount against the Panthers.
The last time Brady did not play in the Patriots’ second preseason game was in 2016 against the Chicago Bears.
Last season, Brady played almost the entire first half against the Eagles in the second preseason game. He finished 19 of 26 with 172 yards and two touchdown passes in a Super Bowl LII rematch.
