Buccaneers' Austin Seferian-Jenkins: Contrite, apologetic Tuesday following prior week's incident
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Seferian-Jenkins took full responsibility Tuesday for both being asked to leave last Thursday's OTA session, and for his social media communications with fans following the incident, Scott Smith of the team's official site reports.

It was a tumultuous conclusion to OTAs last week for the third-year tight end to say the least, as he was banished to the locker room by head coach Dirk Koetter for a lack of preparation. Seferian-Jenkins' social media-based reactions to the ouster only served to exacerbate the situation, as he became belligerent in his digital exchanges with a number of fans who took the opportunity to levy criticism at him for his play over his first two seasons. The towering tight end was a full participant in the opening mini-camp practice Tuesday, and expressed regret-- as well as support for his head coach's decision to remove him from practice-- in meeting with reporters after the conclusion of the session. Seferian-Jenkins is once again set to be a focal point of the Bucs' offensive attack going in to 2016, but his ability to deliver on his massive potential will naturally hinge on whether he's able to remain healthy throughout the campaign.

Buccaneers' Austin Seferian-Jenkins: Sent off field at practice Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Seferian-Jenkins was sent off the field at practice Thursday for not "knowing what he was doing" according to Buccaneers coach Dirk Koetter, Roy Cummings of the Tampa Tribune reports.

Seferian-Jenkins has been pegged for an uptick in value heading into the 2016 season, assuming he avoids injury, but Thursday's events at practice could hint at a less-than-stellar relationship with Koetter, the team's new head coach. The third-year tight end was essentially placed in a timeout, while Koetter said not to make too much out of the situation. At this point, however, Seferian-Jenkins' fantasy utility and role shouldn't be impacted by one bad day of practice, but we'll let you know if that assessment changes.

Buccaneers' Austin Seferian-Jenkins: Health key to bounce-back season
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Seferian-Jenkins only needs a clean bill of health to fulfill his vast potential, according to Bucs tight end coach Jon Embree, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

The third-year tight end's well-publicized shoulder injury last season -- which caused an absence that unexpectedly extended to 10 games -- was cause for considerable consternation among Bucs fans, who eventually began to question Seferian-Jenkins' toughness. However, the University of Washington product was working diligently behind the scenes to get back on the field, and eventually returned for the final five games of the season. The 23-year-old was on pace for 56 receptions and more than 1,100 yards after amassing seven receptions for 139 yards in the two contests before the injury. A full season of health would be the key to Seferian-Jenkins having a breakout campaign according to his position coach, who sympathizes with the injury problems his young charge has encountered in his brief NFL career. "Like I told him it's unfortunate because when he gets hurt, it's a 10-game type issue it seems like," Embree said. "So hopefully he can stay healthy and show everybody what he's capable of. I feel bad for him because it means a lot to him, it's important to him and he works. He's done a lot this offseason to continue to improve so I'd like the see him stay healthy not just for the benefit of the team but for him, also."

Buccaneers TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins doubtful for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins (shoulder) is listed as doubtful for the Week 4 game against Carolina.

Seferian-Jenkins is expected to miss at least two more games, and there's no indication he's close to returning to practice. It's not clear why the Buccaneers even bothered listing him as doubtful, as opposed to just ruling him out.
