Tom Brady Missing Practice With Buccaneers

According to NFL.com:

“Tom has been excused today,” Bowles said. “He’ll be back sometime around after Tennessee. He’s going to deal with some personal things.

“This is something we talked about before training camp started. We allotted this time because he wanted to get in and get chemistry with the guys and go through two weeks of training camp. Knowing he wasn’t going to play the first two games, he didn’t want to take away reps from Blaine (Gabbert) and Kyle (Trask), as well as (Ryan Griffin), as far as going into these next two games.”

“It’s something he needs to handle,” Bowles. “We trust him. We talked about it. It was scheduled way before training camp.”
