Auclair (calf) was placed on IR on Friday, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports. Auclair has already been ruled out of Sunday's game against Carolina, and this move ensures that he will miss at least two additional contests. The depth tight end could return as early as Week 5 against Chicago on Thursday Night Football.
Auclair (calf) has been ruled out of Sunday's game versus the Panthers. Auclair missed the last two practices of the week and will watch from the sidelines during Sunday's divisional bout. The 27-year-old TE is buried on the depth chart anyway and played strictly on special teams in the season opener.
Auclair (calf) did not participate in Thursday's practice, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports. Auclair began the week as a limited participant, so Thursday's complete lack of activity could indicate that he's suffered a setback in his recovery. Of course, Auclair only contributed on special teams Week 1, so if he's forced to sit out Sunday's game against the Panthers, it won't have a noticeable impact on Tampa Bay's offense.
Auclair agreed to a one-year deal with the Buccaneers on Monday, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Auclair had just one catch in eight games last season, but in 2020 he'll continue to provide the Bucs' tight end corps with depth and blocking prowess.
The Buccaneers placed Auclair (toe) on injured reserve Tuesday, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports. The move ends the 26-year-old's season, as the team needed to make room for newly signed outside linebacker Sam Acho. The blocking specialist drew only three targets in eight games, catching one pass for 11 yards.
