NFL reportedly has possible backup stadium for Chiefs-Bucs if Hurricane Ian is issue

Sep 28, 2022

Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady spent part of Monday preparing not for the Chiefs but for Hurricane Ian.

The National Weather Service said Tuesday that Hurricane Ian could cause a storm surge 9 feet above ground in the Tampa-St. Petersburg area, along with winds that could reach 110 mph and rainfall of 10 inches to 15 inches. Isolated areas receiving as much as 20 inches of rain.

Tampa International Airport and St. Pete-Clearwater International Airport will stop all commercial flights on Tuesday, the Tampa Bay Times reported. Hurricane Ian could reach landfall near Tampa sometime Wednesday night or Thursday morning.

Ahead of a “Sunday Night Football” game against the Chiefs at Raymond James Stadium, Brady and the Buccaneers are moving practices to the Miami Dolphins facility, according to the Times’ Rick Stroud. They won’t be alone, as their families will be joining them.
