Bye week comes at opportune time for Bucs DL Michael Johnson
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Buccaneers defensive end Michael Johnson has been hobbled by an ankle injury since getting hurt in the season opener. He has missed one game and has been limited in others.

Though, the Bucs seem pretty thankful they are on a bye Week 7 since it gives Johnson an opportunity to rest.

"For us, it’s a factor," defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier said, per the team's official website. "He’s been playing injured. This week is going to help him tremendously. We’re not going to tax him much this week at least, and we’ll take it slow next week. So we need a healthier Michael Johnson and we should get that by having these two weeks.

"From that second play of that Carolina game – that was one of the plays that we looked at yesterday as we were going through our self-scout – to see him on the ground grimacing, from that point on, it’s just been an uphill battle to try to get him back healthy. He’s made great progress with the time that we’ve had him and the time he’s missed. But he’s not the player that we had coming out of training camp, because of that injury. But the time off this week and next week should help him. He’ll be closer to what we all expect to see when we line up against our next opponent."
