August 22 update: Brady is officially back at practice from his absence, so all seems to be alright in Tampa Bay on that front.

August 21 update: Brady is expected to return to the Buccaneers on the practice field ‘very shortly’, according to Adam Schefter. The original timeline of Brady’s absence was slated to end after the Titans game according to Todd Bowles, so this does check out.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Todd Bowles told reporters that Tom Brady would be away from the team until at least after August 20th, when they play the Titans, per Greg Auman.

This news isn’t going to move the needle on the Buccaneers regular season, as we know Brady will be as prepared as any quarterback could be.

Brady announced his retirement earlier in the offseason, but came out of retirement fairly quickly to prepare for another playoff run with the Bucs. There’s no doubt his numbers haven’t been hurt by his extreme age for a football player. Barring injury, this should be yet another good year for Brady and the Buccaneers.
