Buccaneers' J.R. Sweezy: Cleared for action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sweezy (back) has been cleared to return to action.

Sweezy started the season on the reserve/physically unable to perform list, but never returned to full strength, so that's also where he ended the year. However, in late January general manager Jason Licht confirmed that Sweezy has been cleared to return to action. Thus, expect the offensive lineman to be fully available for offseason activities and, most importantly, the start of the 2017 campaign.

Buccaneers' J.R. Sweezy: Doesn't partake in Monday practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sweezy (back) did not participate in Monday's practice, the first session he was eligible to partake in after spending six weeks on the PUP list, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

The offseason acquisition was inked to a deal that includes $14.5 million guaranteed to man the left guard spot, but he's yet to even take part in a practice with his new team. Sweezy's next opportunity to take the field will come Wednesday, but given the delicate nature of the herniated disk surgery that he underwent this summer, the Bucs could well err on the side of caution and delay his debut further. As per NFL rules, the team has a three-week period to decide whether or not to officially activate Sweezy or place him on season-ending injured reserve.

by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Sweezy (back) was officially placed on the Reserve/PUP list Tuesday, Greg Auman of The Tampa Bay Times reports.

It was initially reported a few weeks back that Sweezy was headed to the reserve/PUP list, but it wasn't made official until late Tuesday. Sweezy will be able to return to an active status after Week 6 of the regular season.

Buccaneers' J.R. Sweezy: Slated to miss first five games of regular season
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Sweezy (back), one of the Bucs' top offseason acquisitions, appears headed to the reserve PUP list to open the 2016 season, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

The former Seahawk had a herniated disc in his back operated on this spring and has been unable to suit up to date as a result. Sweezy recenty received a second opinion from a doctor in California that provided him with encouraging news, but the injury is still expected to keep him out the first five games of the season. "Just went and got it checked out. Everything is good. I'm on track,'' Sweezy said Saturday. "I'm taking it day by day and trying to get back to where I need to be to play at the level I need to play at.'' The Bucs are exercising considerable caution with Sweezy given the $14.5 million he's guaranteed, and his left guard spot is expected to be manned by Kevin Pamphile until he returns. The team has three more weeks before they have to make final decision on Sweezy's status, but given the nature of his injury, the move to the reserve PUP list appears highly likely.

Buccaneers' J.R. Sweezy: Feels return to practice is imminent
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Sweezy (undisclosed) feels he is close to making a return to the practice field from the active/PUP list, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports. "I will say that I am close. Just getting better every day," he said. "It's all good. I'm ready to get out there and get the reps. I want to start getting reps and play football again."

One of the Bucs' key offseason acquisitions, Sweezy has yet to practice with his teammates after undergoing what has only been acknowledged as an undisclosed "procedure". While rumors have swirled that his back is the source of the problem, there has been no official confirmation from the team or player. Third-year pro Kevin Pamphile has been working in Sweezy's stead as the first-team left guard throughout the offseason, and the same has held true over the first two practices of training camp.
