FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Quarterback Tom Brady will not play in tonight's preseason opener against the Jaguars, reports 98.5 The Sports Hub.
Brady has practiced every day to this point in training camp, so this does not appear to be injury-related.
In Brady's absence, third-year backup Brian Hoyer and rookie Ryan Mallett figure to split time under center tonight.
UPDATE (6:56 p.m.): Brady is in uniform but is not taking part in pre-game warm-ups.
