Top Jamel Dean News

  • Buccaneers' Jamel Dean: Not listed on injury report

    Dean (hamstring) doesn't carry an injury designation into Sunday's wild-card matchup with the Eagles.

    Dean left the Buccaneers' regular-season finale with the hamstring injury and was limited during the first two practices of the week. However, he returned as a full participant Friday, which was enough to clear him for Sunday. With Tampa Bay's top two corners -- Sean Murphy-Bunting (hamstring) and Carlton Davis (back) -- questionable, Dean may have to play a larger role than usual against the Eagles.

  • Buccaneers' Jamel Dean: Leaves with injury

    Dean (hamstring) is questionable to return Sunday against the Panthers, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports.

    Dean's absence is a blow to the Buccaneers' secondary that is still down Richard Sherman due to an Achilles injury. With Dean sidelined, Pierre Desir and Dee Delaney are candidates to see extra opportunity.

  • Buccaneers' Jamel Dean: Exits COVID-19 protocols

    Dean (illness) exited the reserve/COVID-19 list Saturday, according to Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site.

    Even though Dean landed on the COVID-19 list earlier this week, he produced two consecutive negative tests and has been cleared to return to action. Dean will not fly with the team Saturday but could still travel separately to New Jersey and participate in Sunday's game against the Jets.

  • Buccaneers' Jamel Dean: Placed on reserve/COVID-19 list

    Dean (illness) was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Tuesday, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Dean tested positive for COVID-19 and will now enter the league's protocols surrounding the virus, putting his availability for Sunday's game against the Jets in doubt. With teammate Sean Murphy-Bunting (illness) also on the COVID list, the Buccaneers may have to look deep into their depth at cornerback, possibly giving Ross Cockrell and Carlton Davis increased snaps in the secondary.

  • Buccaneers' Jamel Dean: Back against Panthers

    Dean (illness) is active Week 16 against the Panthers.

    Dean suffered a concussion Week 14 against the Bills and was forced to sit out Week 15 due to an illness, though it was never made clear whether the two issues were related. He'll gain clearance to take the field Sunday, though Richard Sherman (Achilles) has also been cleared and the cornerback position is largely healthy for Tampa Bay. Dean has seen heavy workloads on defense multiple times this season, though rarely has the entire unit been healthy.

    Dean (illness) is questionable for Sunday's game at Carolina.

  • Buccaneers' Jamel Dean: Full participant Wednesday

    Dean (illness) was a full participant at Wednesday's practice session, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

  • Buccaneers' Jamel Dean: Won't play Week 15

    Dean (illness) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Saints, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

    Dean exited last week's win over the Bills due to the illness, and he was then evaluated for a concussion this week. There's been no further indication about whether the 25-year-old is dealing with a concussion, but he's out for Sunday's divisional contest regardless.

  • Buccaneers' Jamel Dean: Being evaluated for concussion

    The Buccaneers are evaluating Dean to see if his illness Sunday was the result of a concussion, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports.

    The third-year cornerback cleared concussion protocols ahead of Sunday's contest, but he was only able to play 17 defensive snaps before leaving the game due to what was reported as an illness. Earlier in the season, the Packers' Kevin King experienced a similar situation, which resulted in a two game-absence. Nonetheless, this appears to be strictly a precautionary move by Tampa Bay, but Dean's status should be monitored closely.
