    Buccaneers safety Bradley McDougald nets nine tackles Sunday

    Buccaneers safety Bradley McDougald amassed nine tackles (three solo) in the Week 3 loss to the Texans. The Bucs' starting free safety had his busiest afternoon of the young season, blowing past the four tackles he'd tallied in each of the Bucs' first two games. However, he was a shade late providing help on DeAndre Hopkins' first-quarter touchdown catch. While McDougald appears to have a firm grasp on his starting role for the time being, Lovie Smith has already made playing time changes elsewhere in the secondary, a situation that could persist until the Tampa defense solidifies further against the pass.
