Top Buccaneers News

  • Buccaneers' Akiem Hicks: Questionable for Monday night

    Hicks (foot) is listed as questionable for Monday's game versus New Orleans, Katherine Terrell of ESPN.com reports.

    While a limited practice session Saturday is a good sign, whether Hicks will be available for Tampa Bay in Week 13 still appears to be close to a coin flip. If Hicks is forced to miss Monday's game, Rakeem Nunez-Roches would be in line for an expanded role on the Buccaneers' defensive line.

  • Buccaneers' Sean Murphy-Bunting: Unlikely to play Monday

    Murphy-Bunting (quadriceps) is listed as doubtful for Monday's game versus New Orleans, Katherine Terrell of ESPN.com reports.

    After being limited at practice all week, it appears Murphy-Bunting will more than likely have to sit out in Week 13 with a hamstring injury he sustained in Week 12 at Cleveland. If Murphy-Bunting is indeed out, rookie fifth-rounder Zyon McCollum would probably be in line for increased reps on the boundaries.

  • Buccaneers' Antoine Winfield: Unlikely to play Monday night

    Winfield (ankle) is listed as doubtful for Monday's game versus New Orleans, Katherine Terrell of ESPN.com reports.

    After not practicing this week, Winfield will probably be forced to sit out Week 13 with a sprained ankle. With Mike Edwards (hamstring) also listed as doubtful for Monday, Keanu Neal and Nolan Turner could end up being Tampa Bay's starters at safety.

  • Buccaneers' Mike Edwards: Unlikely to play vs. Saints

    Edwards (hamstring) is listed as doubtful for Monday's game versus New Orleans, Katherine Terrell of ESPN.com reports.

    It appears Edwards will be forced to sit out in Week 13 as he recovers from a hamstring injury he sustained in Tampa Bay's loss at Cleveland in Week 12. Should he indeed be deemed inactive come Monday, Keanu Neal would probably draw the start at safety.

  • Buccaneers' Cameron Brate: Full practice Saturday

    Brate (illness) is listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Saints, Katherine Terrell of ESPN.com reports.

    Brate failed to practice both Thursday and Friday, but the veteran tight end was available fully Saturday, which would seem to indicate he'd be able to play. In the event Brate is unavailable, rookie Cade Otton has essentially been the team's lone tight end, although a healthy Brate would likely mean both tight ends split snaps.

  • Buccaneers' Russell Gage: Trending in positive direction

    Gage (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Monday's contest against the Saints, Katherine Terrell of ESPN.com reports.

    Gage was limited in practice both Thursday and Friday, but the veteran receiver was upgraded to a full participant in the final practice of the week, which should be a good sign for fantasy managers. The 26-year-old has not played since Week 7 due to a hamstring injury, and he had just one game with more than two receptions in the four weeks prior to suffering the aforementioned injury.

  • Buccaneers' Leonard Fournette: Questionable despite practice

    Fournette (hip) is listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Saints, Katherine Terrell of ESPN.com reports.

    Fournette was a full participant in practice all week, so it seems as if the Buccaneers are taking the cautious approach with his questionable designation. Expect more clarity regarding the situation to be resolved well before Monday's 8:15 p.m. ET kickoff, but if Fournette is unable to play, Rachaad White would once again step into even more of a prominent position.

  • Buccaneers' Luke Goedeke: Logs full practice

    Goedeke (foot) was a full participant at Friday's practice, Brianna Dix of the Buccaneers' official website reports.

    After a limited practice session Thursday, Goedeke was able to take on a full workload Friday, which indicates he is on track to suit up for the team's Week 13 matchup with the Saints. Barring any setbacks at Saturday's practice, look for him to resume his usual role at left guard.

  • Buccaneers' Russell Gage: Another limited practice

    Gage (hamstring) was a limited practice participant Friday.

    Gage has now practiced on back-to-back days after not doing so at all since Week 7. He's close to a return, but it might not happen for Monday's game against the Saints, especially given that the Bucs don't need him as much with Mike Evans, Chris Godwin and Julio Jones all healthy at the moment.

  • Buccaneers' Cameron Brate: Not at practice

    Brate (illness) didn't practice Friday.

    After missing back-to-back practices, Brate has one last chance Friday to join his teammates. He could play in Monday's game against the Saints even if he's out another day, as he's been with QB Tom Brady for three years now and with the Bucs for much longer. Rookie Cade Otton has typically handled a near-every-down role when Brate is out, while the two tend to split snaps when the veteran is healthy.

  • Buccaneers' Mike Edwards: Dealing with hamstring injury

    Edwards (hamstring) was listed as a non-participant on the Buccaneers' injury report Thursday.

    Edwards reportedly suffered an unspecified contusion during Sunday's loss to Cleveland, which he appears to have sustained to one of his hamstrings. The starting free safety will now look to increase his practice activity at least once before Monday's contest against New Orleans. Otherwise, Keanu Neal and Nolan Turner could be in line to start Week 13 after strong safety Antoine Winfield (ankle) also failed to practice Thursday.

  • Buccaneers' Antoine Winfield: Sits out practice Thursday

    Winfield (ankle) was listed as a non-participant on the Buccaneers' injury report Thursday.

    Winfield sprained his ankle during Sunday's loss to the Browns, leaving him sidelined for Tampa Bay's first practice ahead of Week 13. The 24-year-old will now have two more practices to increase his activity, or he could be set to sit out against New Orleans on Monday. With fellow starting safety Mike Edwards (hamstring) also sidelined during practice Thursday, Nolan Turner and Keanu Neal could be asked to step up if Logan Ryan (foot) is not activated from IR before Monday Night Football.
