Brandon Myers played on 30 snaps in the Week 10 victory over the Cowboys, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
The veteran was second in tight end snaps on the team to Luke Stocker, but the latter was once again shut out of the stat sheet. Myers' playing time appears stable as long as Austin Seferian-Jenkins (shoulder) remains out with an injury that has taken much longer than expected to fully recover from.
Brandon Myers secured three of four targets for 35 yards in Sunday's 10-6 victory over the Cowboys.
Myers likely thought his starting days in Tampa were over entering the season, with second-year standout Austin Seferian-Jenkins ready to take the reins of the top tight end job. Instead, Seferian-Jenkins' multi-week shoulder injury has continued to afford the veteran Myers playing time, and he has been solid as a dependable outlet option for rookie Jameis Winston. The 35 yards were a season high mark for Myers, while his three catches equaled his highest number of receptions he's tallied in a game this season. Myers may continue to receive starter's snaps in Week 11 if Seferian-Jenkins remains sidelined.
Brandon Myers logged 24 snaps in the Week 9 loss to the Giants, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Myers logged the second-highest number of snaps among tampa tight ends behind Luke Stocker for the second straight week, but was shut out of the stat sheet for the second time in three contests. The veteran tight end's playing time has been fairly consistent during the extended absence of Austin Seferian-Jenkins (shoulder), but his performances clearly haven't, even with the multitude of injuries suffered by the Bucs' receiving corps.
Brandon Myers secured all three of his targets for 32 yards in Sunday's 23-20 overtime victory over the Falcons.
Myers returned to the box score after a Week 7 outing against the Redskins in which he was shut out and only targeted once. The veteran tight end served as an extra pair of hands on deck on a day in which the Bucs passing game was short-handed, and equaled his season-high with a long reception of 17 yards. It remains to be seen how Tampa's tight end depth chart will shake out beneath Austin Seferian-Jenkins (shoulder) when the starter returns to the field.
Brandon Myers will be replaced by Luke Stocker in the starting lineup for Sunday's game against the Redskins.
Myers has logged 40-plus snaps each of the last three weeks while Austin Seferian-Jenkins (shoulder) has been sidelined, but he's gone largely ignored in the passing game, hauling in six of nine targets for 60 yards. His snap count figures to dwindle with Stocker replacing him in the lineup, but don't expect any of the Bucs' tight ends to see many looks from quarterback Jameis Winston until Seferian-Jenkins is healthy again.
