Tom Brady "ready to go" after returning from 11-day Buccaneers absence
Tampa, Florida - Tom Brady is "ready to go" for the new NFL season following an 11-day absence from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers training camp.
Brady had time away unusually close to the regular season to deal with what have been labeled as "personal matters."
He ended his absence, for which he received prior approval from the team, this week and played one series for the Bucs against the Indianapolis Colts on Saturday.
Brady completed six of eight passes for 44 yards, including a 20-yard connection to new Bucs receiver Julio Jones.
"Everyone's got different situations they're dealing with. We all have really unique challenges to our life."
"I'm 45 years old, man. There's a lot of s*** going on. Just gotta try to figure out life the best you can. It's a continuous process."
Pressed on whether the issues he referred to had been resolved, Brady replied, "I'm ready to go."
