Suh was back in practice Monday after receiving a veteran's maintenance day off Sunday, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports. The standout veteran has been his usual self when he's been on the practice field, lending credence to the notion he could once again serve as one of the better IDP assets across the league at defensive tackle. Suh has accumulated 8.5 sacks over his first two seasons in Tampa Bay, a figure he's supplemented with a solid 84 tackles, six defensed passes, two defensive touchdowns, four fumble recoveries and one forced fumble.
Suh didn't participate in Tuesday's practice due to an unspecified issue, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports. The veteran defensive tackle practiced the first two days of training camp after dealing with a minor wrist issue in June minicamp, but he was just an observer Tuesday. Laine notes Suh is always subject to the occasional maintenance day both in camps and during the season, and his activity Wednesday should provide further clarity on whether that was indeed the case in this instance.
Suh sat out Tuesday's practice with a minor wrist injury, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports. The 34-year-old indicated it's not a serious issue and shouldn't affect his availability for training camp. Suh re-signed with Tampa Bay on a one-year deal in March after posting 43 tackles (27 solo), six sacks and a forced fumble in 16 games last season.
Suh agreed Wednesday with the Buccaneers on a one-year contract, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. One-year deals have become a trend for Suh in recent years, though it hardly makes him a trendsetter this offseason. The 34-year-old has started all 16 games in nine consecutive seasons, including both the past two years in Tampa Bay. He was one of the better interior pass rushers in the league last season, recording 29 pressures, 19 quarterback hits and six sacks across 786 defensive snaps.
Suh totaled five tackles (four solo), including one for loss, and also recorded a quarterback hit in the Buccaneers' 27-24 loss to the Chiefs on Sunday. The big defensive tackle tied his season high with Sunday's tackle tally. Suh has multiple stops in four of the last five games overall, and his four sacks leave him just two short of his best total over the last five seasons. Suh's interior-line spot does lend some uncertainty to his week-to-week production, but he's arguably more of a threat to get to the quarterback than many other players at his position.
