Tom Brady spoke with reporters after practice on Monday.

Tom Brady and a select group of his Patriots teammates will not play Thursday night against the New York Giants in the team’s preseason finale, instead resting and reserving the team’s star players for the regular season, according to multiple reports.

Brady has played in the final preseason game of the last two seasons, but has only done so one other time in the last 10 years.

The Herald was first to report Brady and others would not play.
