Tandy missed some practice time throughout the week due to a calf injury before being officially ruled questionable for Monday's game. He figures to take on his usual role providing depth in the team's secondary.
Tandy (calf) is marked as questionable for Monday's game.
Tandy practiced in full Saturday which bodes well for his game status Monday. Regardless, Tandy is only expected to function as a depth secondary player if available. Ryan Smith could see an increase in snaps if Tandy doesn't suit up.
Tandy didn't play on defense in Sunday's loss to the Broncos and is now sitting out of practice, putting his status for next Monday's game into question.
Tandy turned in what head coach Dirk Koetter called the "play of the day" with a spectacular pass deflection Friday, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
The fifth-year defensive back, currently slotted behind Bradley McDougald on the strong safety depth chart, knocked down a Mike Glennon deep pass intended for Adam Humphries. The latter had gotten wide open on a double move on cornerback Johnthan Banks, but Tandy was able to get on his horse and hustle over from the middle of the field to deflect the ball. "That was a great play by Tandy," Koetter said. "That ball was about 50 yards down the field. For Tandy to show that range, that's unusual for an NFL safety to overlap and make that play so that was a really nice play."
The fifth-year West Virginia product tallied a career-high 42 tackles (28 solo) in 2015. Tandy's positional versatility allowed him to make two starts at safety last season while seeing time as a nickel back as well. The 27-year-old has also been highly valuable on special teams, having recorded 14 special teams tackles over his first four seasons.
