Tom Brady, QB (TB)

Won't play in preseason opener

Brady and some of the Buccaneers' other starters will be held out of the team's Aug. 13 preseason opener against the Dolphins, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports.

Brady didn't play in the 2020 preseason but then attempted 16 passes in two games in his second year with Tampa Bay in 2021. His 2022 projection has gotten a bit better in recent weeks with Chris Godwin (knee) avoiding the PUP list to start training camp and with the Bucs signing Julio Jones shortly thereafter. Blaine Gabbert likely will start at quarterback in Tampa's preseason opener.
