Tom Brady is back on the field after a 'silly accident' with scissors



Tom Brady is back on the field after a "silly accident" with scissors, according to USA Today. 

He returned to practice Tuesday after cutting his thumb with scissors.

Brady said he sliced his right thumb on a pair of scissors before Thursday's preseason game against the Chicago Bears. 

"I was ready to go, had everything on, and I was just trying to get something out of my shoe," Brady told ESPN's Mike Reiss. "The scissors slipped. Just a silly accident."

Brady added that when the accident happened, he let out a pretty loud word he wouldn't repeat in front of his kids. 

Brady said Coach Bill Belichick suggested he just take it easy because the team wasn't playing in a regular season game. 

He added that he hopes to play in Friday's game against the Carolina Panthers.
