Nassib has only reached the 20-snap threshold once over the first six games, and he figures to continue operating in a similar capacity unless injuries strike alongside the Buccaneers' defensive front.

  • Buccaneers' Carl Nassib: Productive in part-time role

    Nassib finished the 2019 season with 34 tackles (24 solo), six sacks, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery across 14 games. Nassib pushed his career sack total with the Buccaneers to 12.5 with his 2019 tally, despite logging 42 or fewer defensive snaps in each of the last seven games of the season for which he suited up. The four-year veteran set a career high in both total and solo tackles, serving as a dependable presence during his first season in Todd Bowles' 3-4 scheme. With his rookie contract now fulfilled, Nassib is a candidate to return to Tampa on a new deal after putting together a solid body of work during his first pair of campaigns with the club.

    Nassib (groin) is active for Sunday's Week 12 tilt against the Falcons, Scott Smith of the team's official site reports. Nassib's return from a two-game absence gives the Buccaneers a deeper pass rushing rotation against pass-happy Matt Ryan and his potent group of receivers. Nassib has occasionally proven effective in penetrating into the backfield, collecting 22 tackles (15 solo) and three sacks through eight games.

    Nassib racked up six tackles (all solo), including four for loss, and one sack in Sunday's 37-26 loss to the Panthers.
