This was announced by the NFL Network on Thursday morning, but without specifying the exact content of the reasons in question. Additionally, Bucs head coach Todd Bowles added that the concerned director will not be back until the Aug. 20 exhibition game against the Tennessee Titans. The same source added that the 45-year-old veteran is in good physical condition and that the Florida organization is ok with his decision to leave.

After deciding to return to the game after announcing his retirement last winter, Brady also briefly missed the call last week.

The Buccaneers’ first preseason game is Saturday against the Miami Dolphins.
