Buccaneers' Brandon Myers: In line for expanded role in Week 3
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Myers is starting in Sunday's Week 3 tilt versus the Rams following the official deactivation of Luke Stocker (ankle), Scott Smith of the team's official site reports. .

The veteran tight end has earned his NFL chops primarily as a pass catcher, but officially gets the starting nod against the Rams in Stocker's place. Myers could see some modest attention from Jameis Winston when he's not engaged in blocking duties, but Cameron Brate may still see the majority of the tight end targets.

Buccaneers' Brandon Myers: Secures only target for touchdown in Week 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Myers secured his only target for a four-yard touchdown in Sunday's 31-24 victory over the Falcons.

The largely forgotten man at tight end showed up at an opportune time Sunday, breaking free for a touchdown reception on a Jameis Winston bootleg early in the second quarter that erased a 10-3 deficit at the time. While the score was certainly a welcome sight, his one target on the day is more of an accurate reflection of Myers' place in the passing game pecking order.

Buccaneers' Brandon Myers: Overcomes long odds to make final roster
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Myers defied the odds in making the Bucs' 53-man roster, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

The presence of the veteran tight end on the opening day roster seemed like a far-fetched notion at the beginning of training camp, given his progressively reduced involvement in the latter portion of the season last year, as well as the abundance of younger candidates at the position. However, the Bucs surprised by keeping a whopping five tight ends and no true fullback, opening the door for Myers to hang on to a roster spot. Intangibles such as reliability and work ethic largely made the case for him, as he was barely a blip on the preseason radar (one catch for minus-one yard). "I came in this offseason and Coach just told me to do what I've always done, just work. I'm a guy that's never really been handed anything," said Myers, who has 34 catches for 317 yards in two seasons with the Bucs. "I took his advice, just came in and worked and things worked out. I'm very blessed, very excited for this season. We have a good group of guys in our room, a lot of guys in that room that can do a lot of good things for this football team."

Buccaneers' Brandon Myers: Returns to practice Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Myers (knee) returned to practice Wednesday, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

The veteran tight end is back on the field for the start of Wednesday's joint practice session versus the Jaguars in Jacksonville. Myers made an early exit from Thursday's preseason opener against the Eagles with the injury and had yet to return to practice. His status for Saturday's game against the Jaguars will likely be determined by how he progresses over the next two days of practice.

Buccaneers' Brandon Myers: Sidelined in Monday practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Myers did not practice Monday and may not travel to Jacksonville Saturday for the team's preseason game against the Jaguars, Jenna Laine of ESPN reports.

After suffering from the knee injury in Tampa Bay's preseason opener, Myers still has no timetable for his return. The veteran tight end was already at a disadvantage in fighting for a spot in a crowded tight end rotation, and the injury certainly worsens the situation for Myers. He should still be considered day-to-day at this point.
