As of Thursday, Tom Brady has already missed two practices within the final week for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and now he’ll add yet one more to that whole.
The 45-year-old didn’t apply with the Buccaneers on Thursday and, in response to coach Todd Bowles, is not going to be again with the group anytime quickly. Throughout his post-practice press convention, Bowles announced that Brady he can be sidelined till after the Buccaneers’ second preseason recreation on Aug. 20 towards the Titans. Bowles stated this was determined earlier than coaching camp to permit Brady to handle a private situation.
“He will cope with some private stuff,” Bowles stated, through PFT. “That is one thing we talked about earlier than coaching camp began. We took that point as a result of he wished to come back in and get some chemistry with the fellows and get by way of two weeks of coaching camp understanding he isn’t going to play the primary two video games.
Assuming Brady returns to the group the day after the sport (August 21st), which means he’ll miss 10 days of motion.
Whereas Brady can be out for 10 days, that does not imply he’ll miss 10 days of apply. The Buccaneers have a preseason recreation towards the Dolphins scheduled for Saturday, and the group had already deliberate to bench him for that, so he will not miss something there.
Buccaneers do not you have a workout scheduled the day earlier than the sport (Friday) or the day after the sport (Sunday), so Brady will not miss his subsequent apply till Monday (Aug. 15).
Thursday’s apply scored the third time in eight days that Brady was not on the sphere with the group. Brady didn’t apply on his birthday (Aug. three) as a result of the group gave him the scheduled day without work. Two days later, Brady was excused from apply. He then returned to the sphere for 4 practices (Saturday, Sunday, Tuesday, Wednesday) earlier than lacking Thursday’s session.
An attention-grabbing be aware about Brady’s absences is that he has but to fulfill with the media since being named within the NFL’s investigative report on the Dolphins. Again on August 2, NFL punished the Dolphins for dealing with Brady by touchdown the group two draft picks (one within the first spherical and one within the third spherical).
That is to not say Brady skips practices to keep away from the media; simply to say will probably be attention-grabbing to listen to his facet of the story on the Dolphins stuff, and based mostly on his continued absence from apply, it seems like we’ll have to attend a little bit longer earlier than we hear it.
