Buccaneers' Louis Murphy: Faces competition for third receiver job this summer
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Murphy faces competition from multiple players for the third receiver spot in 2016, Scott Smith of the team's official site reports.

The veteran wideout will enter his eighth season with a host of young hopefuls vying for his third receiver role. Murphy hauled in 10 receptions for 198 yards in 2015-- good for a career-high 19.8 yards per catch-- before a torn ACL ended his campaign in Week 6. He displayed some chemistry downfield with rookie quarterback Jameis Winston, recording receptions of 33 and 54 yards. With the Bucs reportedly looking to have their third pass-catcher also play on the outside from time to time in 2016, players like sophomores Donteaa Dye, Evan Spencer, and Kenny Bell could all make strong bids for the job with their speed.

Buccaneers' Louis Murphy: Won't take field until training camp
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Bucs head coach Dirk Koetter said Murphy (knee) won't be on the field until training camp, Scott Smith of the team's official site reports.

Murphy tore his ACL in late October, finishing the 2015 season with a 10-198-0 receiving line in six games. Though he mostly served as Tampa Bay's No. 3 wide receiver prior to the injury, Murphy may have to compete for a roster spot in training camp - if he's even healthy enough to suit up. With 33-year-old Vincent Jackson entering the final year of his contract, the Bucs could target a wide receiver in the early rounds of the draft.

Buccaneers' Louis Murphy: Totals 10 catches for 198 yards in injury-shortened 2015
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Murphy secured 10 of 18 targets for 198 yards over six games in 2015 before tearing his ACL and being place on injured reserve.

The veteran receiver's two seasons in Tampa have been cut short by injury, with an ankle ailment curtailing Murphy's 2014 campaign after 11 games. The 28-year-old was a reasonably effective third receiver early this past season, and was just beginning to develop a rapport with rookie quarterback Jameis Winston when he suffered his season-ending ACL tear in Week 6 against the Redskins. Six of his 10 catches went for first downs, and he also tallied receptions of 33 and 54 yards, which helped Murphy post a career-high 19.8 yards per catch in 2015. Under Tampa's control through the 2016 season, the eight-year pro could potentially begin training camp on the sidelines while he completes his recovery. In the event that teammate Vincent Jackson is jettisoned in the offseason by the Bucs' new coaching staff, Murphy could find himself with some added opportunities in the 2016 campaign in a new offensive system.

Buccaneers WR Vincent Jackson could be out several weeks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

A knee injury could sideline Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Vincent Jackson multiple weeks, per Ian Rapoport of NFL.com.

Jackson hasn't been ruled out for Week 8 yet, but this report certainly doesn't seem promising. The 32-year-old caught just one pass in 36 snaps Sunday against the Redskins - a surprising total considering Tampa Bay was without Russell Shepard (hamstring) and lost Louis Murphy (knee) in the middle of the game.

Buccaneers' Louis Murphy: Placed on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Louis Murphy (torn ACL) was placed on injured reserve Tuesday.

With Murphy out for the season and Russell Shepard (hamstring) possibly still nursing an injury, Donteea Dye may be the Bucs' No. 3 wide receiver by default. As if the depletion of depth weren't enough to deal with, starting wideout Vincent Jackson (knee) is also banged up. Mike Evans is going to be busy.
