  • Buccaneers' Kaevon Merriweather: Pops up on injury report

    Merriweather (thigh) was listed as a limited participant on Wednesday's injury report, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM NFL Radio reports.

    Merriweather handled his typical snap count in Sunday's loss to the Saints, so it's not clear when he may have picked up the injury. However, the 24-year-old will still have a couple of days to make progress and recover in time for the team's Week 18 game against the Panthers.

    Coach Todd Bowles said Wednesday that Merriweather (ankle) will not play Thursday at Buffalo, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports.

    Merriweather will be sidelined for the first time in his rookie season in Week 8 as he works to recover from an ankle injury he sustained Sunday versus Atlanta. He's played exclusively on special teams so far this season, so Tampa Bay will have to try to replace his production in that phase Thursday.
