  • Buccaneers' Shaquil Barrett: Optimistic for timely return

    Barrett (Achilles) said in an interview after Monday's wild-card loss to the Cowboys that he's walking with a normal stride again and hopes to be ready for the start of next preseason, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Barrett missed Tampa Bay's final 10 games of the 2022-23 campaign as a result of the torn Achilles he suffered back in Week 8. The Buccaneers proceeded to place the 30-year-old on injured reserve, and it now it sounds as if Barrett is confident that he'll make a full recovery heading into next season.

  • Buccaneers' Shaquil Barrett: Placed on IR

    Barrett (Achilles) was placed on injured reserve Monday, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports.

    After suffering a torn Achilles in Week 8 versus the Ravens, Barrett is officially done for the season. The 30-year-old will finish the 2022 campaign with 31 tackles, including three sacks, while also forcing a fumble over eight games.

    Barrett is believed to have suffered a torn Achilles and will undergo an MRI on Friday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    Barrett went down with a lower leg injury in the third quarter of Thursday's loss to the Ravens and, it is feared that he suffered a torn Achilles after initial examinations. More clarity on his status will be provided following Friday's imaging, but the 29-year-old appears likely to be done for the season. If that's the case, Anthony Nelson and Carl Nassib are candidates to step into a starting role at outside linebacker.

  • Buccaneers' Shaquil Barrett: Achilles tear confirmed

    Barrett suffered a torn left Achilles' tendon in Thursday's loss to the Ravens, Adam Schefter of ESPN ports.

  • Buccaneers' Shaquil Barrett: Will play Sunday

  • Buccaneers' Shaquil Barrett: Questionable with illness

    Barrett is listed as questionable for Sunday's game at Pittsburgh with an unspecified illness, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

  • Buccaneers' Shaquil Barrett: Solid tackle tally Week 5

    Barrett complied five tackles (three solo) and was credited with a quarterback hit during the Buccaneers' 21-15 win over the Falcons in Week 5.

    Barrett drew even with multiple players for second on the team in stops while tying his own season high in the process. The veteran only has a pair of Week 2 sacks to his name thus far, but his average of 4.2 tackles per contest puts him on pace for a career-best 71 stops over a 17-game season.

  • Buccaneers' Shaquil Barrett: Gets two sacks Sunday

    Barrett recorded five tackles, including two sacks, and an additional quarterback hit in the Buccaneers' 20-10 win over the Saints on Sunday.

    After a quiet opener against the Cowboys where he tallied just a pair of stops, Barrett bounced back with a typically disruptive effort. The 29-year-old's first two quarterback takedowns of the season were part of a six-sack effort overall for the Buccaneers, and Barrett should continue to provide plenty of pressure in an aggressive scheme that he'd collected 37 sacks in over the prior three years coming into the season.

  • Buccaneers' Shaquil Barrett: Healthy and set for regular season

    Barrett, who recorded a solo tackle in the preseason finale against the Colts on Saturday night, made it through training camp and preseason healthy and once again projects for a pass-rush-heavy role out of his starting right outside linebacker spot.

    Barrett logged double-digit sacks for the second time in his career last season, tallying 10 quarterback takedowns after slipping to eight in 2020. The veteran once again proved highly durable in 2021 as well, seeing action in 15 regular-season games and then bouncing back from a December knee injury to suit up in both the Buccaneers' postseason contests. Additionally, with Tampa Bay declining to bring back the veteran duo of Jason Pierre-Paul and Ndamukong Suh this offseason, Barrett's pass-rushing acumen could prove even more critical in 2022, which certainly has the potential to up his already robust IDP value further.
