Dean (knee) notched five tackles, an interception and an additional pass defensed in the Buccaneers' 45-17 win over the Dolphins on Sunday.

The third-year corner returned from what was nearly a two-game absence in fine fashion, checking in third in tackles while also snagging a Jacoby Brissett pass intended for Jaylen Waddle early in the fourth quarter. That turnover led to Tampa Bay's final touchdown of the day and served as Dean's first interception of the campaign. While the arrival of Richard Sherman initially pushed Dean into a reserve role, the quadriceps injury that landed Carlton Davis on injured reserve Thursday should keep the 24-year-old in the first-string defense for the time being.
