Sources: Brady missed his own training camp because he had a family emergency

He’s not coming back before the 20th of August.



His return won’t happen until after August 20.

Tom Brady’s absence from training camp has drawn attention, but according to Albert Breer of Sports Illustrated, the famous quarterback and his family are doing OK. Breer clarified that, contrary to rumors, Brady’s 10-day break from camp was preplanned, approved, and his family is well.

Brady is anticipated to miss several days of Buccaneers training camp due to a personal problem, according to coach Todd Bowles, who spoke to reporters on August 11. Brady won’t be back until after the team’s second preseason game against the Titans on August 20, according to Bowles.

He’ll return anytime in or around Tennessee, Bowles said. He will handle certain personal matters. We discussed this before the start of training camp. We gave him this time because he wanted to join the team, develop a rapport with the players, and spend two weeks in training camp knowing he wouldn’t play in the first two games.

He didn’t want to deprive Kyle Trask, Ryan Griffin, and Blaine Gabbert of practice time leading up to the next two games. We trust him, we talked about it, and it’s something he needs to handle. It was planned far in advance of training camp, and he won’t arrive until after Tennessee.
