How much will Tom Brady play Friday against Philly? ‘As much as coach lets me’

08.13.14 at 1:18 pm ET

Tom Brady didn’t play in the preseason opener against the Redskins. Asked of he’s expecting to play Friday night in the Patriots second preseason contest of the summer against the Eagles, he gave a very Brady-like answer.

“As much as coach lets me — he makes those decisions,” the quarterback said after Wednesday’s practice with Philly. “I’€™ll be ready to play for as long as he wants me to. That’€™s very valuable playing experience for me, too. It doesn’€™t matter how many years you’€™ve been doing it — you’€™ve got to get out there and play under game situations and get your body going at the level that it needs to be at.”

For the record, here’s a look at how much Brady has played in the second preseason game of the year, dating back to 2008.

2008: DNP
2009: 4-for-8 for 57 yards in 13 snaps vs. Bengals
2010: 10-for-12 for 85 yards, 1 TD in 24 snaps vs. Falcons
