New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was not injured after being involved in a two-car accident early Thursday morning in downtown Boston. Local reports say Brady was proceeding through an intersection with a green light when a passenger van ran a red light and was struck by Brady's sedan.

A passenger in the van had to be extricated by Boston firefighters using the Jaws of Life and was taken to a local hospital.

Witnesses have told local media that Brady appeared shaken immediately after the accident, but eventually was picked up by another vehicle and driven to Gillette Stadium in Foxborough. A team spokesman said later that Brady participated in a walk-through practice session.

Brady has had an interesting week so far. He's denied reports that had the quarterback and team close to signing a multimillion dollar contract extension. The deal has not been done and or announced by the team, as of early Thursday afternoon.

Sunday, the Patriots will host Cincinnati in the opening weekend of the NFL season. Brady and the Pats will be competing with an improved Dolphins team and the preseason AFC East pick in the Jets for playoffs spots.
