After all, he is already at an age when most football players are retired and start their second careers.
He has been playing a physical game since high school and has been in the NFL since 2000.
No wonder the signs of breaking down are coming out after more than two decades.
However, he came back to practice without showing any physical concerns.
After missing practice on Wednesday and being listed with shoulder and finger injuries, #Bucs QB Tom Brady returned to practice normally.

NFL insider Dov Kleiman tweeted, “After missing practice on Wednesday and being listed with shoulder and finger injuries, #Bucs QB Tom Brady returned to practice normally.”
Brady picked up the pace in Week 4 when he had 385 yards and three touchdowns in a loss to the Kansas City Chiefs.
But before that game, those injuries might have been bothering him.
He had 212 yards, a touchdown, and an interception in their season opener versus the Dallas Cowboys.
A week later, he had 18 completions for 190 yards and a touchdown against the New Orleans Saints.
Brady finished with 31 completions for 271 yards and a touchdown in a loss to the Green Bay Packers.
While the Buccaneers are on a two-game losing streak, Brady hasn’t thrown a pick in three games.
He is also completing 68.4 percent of his passes out of 155 attempts.
Brady Dealing With A Lot
If leading the Buccaneers to victory alone isn’t enough pressure, there’s the brewing marital concern between him and Gisele Bundchen.
That situation can take a toll on his mindset, even if he is one of the mentally toughest players in the league.
But he and the Buccaneers can get out of their slump by defeating the division rival Atlanta Falcons in Week 5.
It’s no easy matchup, though, because the Falcons are on a two-game winning streak.
