Tom Brady is doing the unprecedented by stepping away from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers just as they’re getting ready to play their first preseason game on Saturday. As all the other quarterbacks are working feverishly to try and gain any advantage they can for the upcoming season, Brady has put his workout with the team on hiatus.

Though, it’s not like Brady is just suddenly going on vacation. Instead, he’s reportedly dealing with a personal matter, which will have him out until after their Week 2 preseason game vs the Tennesee Titans on August 20.

There haven’t been any other official accounts on what Brady may be dealing with, but he has the full support of his teammates. All-Pro linebacker Devin White wants everyone to know that he’s not worried about Brady being prepared for the start of the season, he knows the type of professional he is. But he’s also hoping for the best for what Brady is going through.

“He’s a grown man, growner than a lot of us in the locker room. He’s a human. At the end of the day, he’s got personal problems going on, but he’s been doing this so long, he doesn’t need to be here.”
