Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady chatted with Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa at Wednesday’s joint practice between the teams, but they won’t be able to continue the conversation on Thursday.

Multiple reporters at the practice have shared that Brady is not present for the second practice involving the teams. Buccaneers head coach Todd Bowles is expected to address the absence at a press conference after the workout, but Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that he is expected to be away from the team for a few days while dealing with a personal matter.

The Bucs and Dolphins play on Saturday night and Tampa won’t practice again on Monday. Brady was not expected to play in that game, so Thursday’s practice may be the only on-field work he misses if he’s back to start next week.

Blaine Gabbert, Kyle Trask, and Ryan Griffin will handle quarterback duties for the Bucs until Brady is back.

  1. Some have speculated he has an appointment at the Social Security office, applying for his Medicare card.

  2. “Personal” lol. Keep your eye on this guy Bucs he’s probably trying to force his way on the Dolphins right now. That and the cheating. He needs close supervision.

  3. Bucs arguably have the best roster in the league, of he wants another Super Bowl they’re the ticket

  4. Tom is flying out to San Francisco to have a meeting with Kyle Shanahan to see how long it will take before Trey Lance is labeled a bust. Tom wants to win a few Super Bowls with his childhood team before he retires. It’s understandable.

  5. Brady probably doesn’t need as much practice after 20+ years…
    Hopefully Trask takes advantage and gets plenty of reps!

    Beware of Belichick’s castoffs.
    Yeah, because one of them might win you a Super Bowl and then follow it up with a career season.
