According to the team's head coach Todd Bowles, Brady missed practice on August 11 and will not return until after the team's second preseason game on August 20. Bowles said the break had been planned since before training camp began. "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." Todd Bowles, Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach, via CNN.
