Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Todd Bowles said yesterday that Tom Brady is taking some personal time away from the team. “Tom has been excused today. He’ll be taking… he’ll be back somewhere around after Tennessee,” Bowles said, per NBC Sports. “He’s going to deal with some personal things.” It was confirmed via a source that Tom is not injured. There is some speculation that some have come up with in regards to Tom’s mom Galynn who’s been battling breast cancer since 2016. There’s been no evidence to back that up, only speculation. Back over July 4th weekend, Tom was seen golfing with his mom for her 77th birthday. There is also speculation that Tom may be leaving for some family time but again this is only speculation. Coach Bowles added “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.” Sources close to the team and to Brady say they’re not worried about Tom adding that they’re confident he’ll return for the Bucs first game against the Cowboys on September 11.
