  • Buccaneers running back Charles Sims rushed 12 times for 51 yards and secured all four of his targets for 85 yards in Sunday's 38-31 victory over the Jaguars.The Bucs' backfield was hitting on all cylinders Sunday, and Sims managed to turn in yet another big play through the air while also managing a season-high 51 yards on the ground. After consecutive weeks in which he recorded a touchdown reception, Sims produced a dynamic 56-yard reception in the third quarter. The play began as a simple third-and-long screen pass that the second-year running back maximized with an impressive burst of speed down the left sideline. Sunday's performance provided a glimpse of the added dimension that Sims' superior pass-catching ability brings to an offense, and he'll look to continue his recent impressive play when Tampa squares off against the Redskins in Week 7 following the bye.

  • Buccaneers running back Charles Sims participated in 39 snaps in Week 4, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.Sims continues to see the field as frequently as Doug Martin, and paid dividends in the passing game once again in Week 4, securing his second touchdown reception of the season. The second-year back has already received 15 targets in 2015, and appears to have solidified a role as a change-of-pace back with the opportunity for 10-15 touches on a weekly basis.

  • Buccaneers running back Charles Sims gained 23 yards on six carries and secured three of five targets for 30 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 37-23 loss to the Panthers.The versatile second-year back continues to be a difference maker through the air for the Bucs. It was Sims' second touchdown reception in as many weeks, and came on a play where he was split out wide as a receiver. Sims did a good job working his way free in the end zone on the play, and an under-duress Jameis Winston was able to find him after narrowly avoiding a sack. Sims will continue to work in tandem with backfield mate Doug Martin in a Bucs offense that is long on talent but still short on consistency in the early going of the 2015 campaign.

  • Buccaneers running back Doug Martin missed Thursday's practice due to a knee injury, but coach Lovie Smith expects the running back to "be OK," the Tampa Bay Times reports.After sustaining the injury Wednesday, his lack of participation Thursday appears to be a precaution, as Smith expects Martin to return in some capacity Friday, according to the Buccaneers' official site.Expect Martin's status to be clarified as the week draws to a close, but Charles Sims could be in line for additional work, if Martin is at all hampered Sunday against the Panthers.

  • Buccaneers running back Charles Sims was on the field for 30 snaps in Week 3 against the Texans, the Tampa Bay Times reports.Sims' and Doug Martin's snaps were virtually identical, with the former's playing time likely receiving a boost by virtue of the Bucs having to play from behind in the fourth quarter. Sims still carried the ball only six times, with his pass-catching prowess clearly the biggest asset he brings to the field at this early stage of his career.As it did in Week 3, game flow will likely be one of the strongest factors in the amount of Sims' snaps on most Sundays.
