Tom Brady is expected to play in the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' third and final preseason game against the Indianapolis Colts.

Todd Bowles did not say it outright, but when asked if Brady will play, he responded, "Everyone who is healthy will play."

Brady, who returned this week from an 11-day absence to tend to "personal issues," is healthy and practiced in full Thursday.

When healthy, Brady has participated in at least one preseason game every year since he was drafted in 2000.
