2:45pm - Tom Brady will play tonight in the Patriots' preseason opener against the Packers at Gillette Stadium.
He'll draw a rousing ovation no doubt, but keep an eye on that protection. On the offensive line, Bryan Stork, Marcus Cannon, Nate Solder and Sebastian Vollmer apparently won't go.
Earlier, Brady hinted at playing tonight, in the Patriots preseason opener vs. the Packers at Gillette Stadium.
Brady has absolutely expressed to the coaching staff he wants to play, per sources. But Bill Belichick will make (or has made) a final decision.
Prosecutors in Houston say a warrant has been issued for the arrest of Pro Bowl defensive end Michael Bennett for injuring a paraplegic woman as he tried get onto the field at last year's Super Bowl to celebrate with his brother.
The Harris County district attorney's office says a grand jury indicted Bennett on Friday on a felony count of injury to the elderly.
Authorities say Bennett was a spectator at the game in Houston when he tried to get onto the field immediately after the game to see his brother, Martellus Bennett, a tight end for the Patriots at the time. Prosecutors say he pushed through security personnel, including a 66-year-old disabled woman who had told him to use a different entrance to access the field.
The Philadelphia Eagles earlier this month acquired Bennett from the Seattle Seahawks.

New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft is using the team plane to transport high school students from Parkland, Florida. The plane will take the students from Florida to a rally in Washington, D.C. where they will stage a protest to promote gun reform.
Kraft took action after Arizona Congreswoman Gabrielle Giffords and her husband asked him for help, according to CBS Boston.
The students' organized protests, which are expected to take place nation-wide, come after the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School which left 17 people dead.
Some students took to Twitter to thank Kraft for the gesture.
