  • Buccaneers' Vita Vea: Misses walk-through Wednesday

    Vea (pectoral) missed the Buccaneers' walk-through on Wednesday, Nick Underhill of NewOrleans.Football reports.

    Vea popped up on Tampa Bay's injury report Wednesday with the pec injury he's been dealing with recently. Considering he was able to play in Monday's loss to the Eagles, the nose tackle seems likely to be able to go again in Week 4 versus the Saints.

  • Buccaneers' Vita Vea: Good to go Monday

    Vea (pectoral) is active for Monday's contest against the Eagles.

    Vea was a limited participant in all three practice sessions last week and is set to play Monday night. He registered 1.5 sacks against the Bears in Week 2 but will have a much tougher time trying to get to Jalen Hurts behind a dominant Eagles offensive front.

  • Buccaneers' Vita Vea: Designated as questionable

    Vea (pectoral) is listed as questionable for Monday's contest against the Eagles, Brianna Dix of the Buccaneers' official site reports.

    Vea was a limited participant in all practice sessions this past week after registering three tackles -- including 1.5 sacks -- in Sunday's 27-17 win over the Bears. His presence will be sorely missed if he's unable to suit up against the Eagles' formidable offensive line. Nose tackle Greg Gaines will be tasked with a larger workload should Vea be ruled out for Monday.

  • Buccaneers' Vita Vea: Limited at practice

    Vea (pectoral) was a limited participant at practice Thursday.

    Vea looked great in Week 2, recording 1.5 sacks, but his status for Week 3 is now in some question. He'll get two more shots to log a full practice before Monday's game versus Philadelphia.

  • Buccaneers' Vita Vea: Records 1.5 sacks Week 2

    Vea notched three tackles, including 1.5 sacks, in Sunday's Week 2 win against Chicago.

    Vea's first sack with split was Logan Hall, while his second was a solo takedown that went for an 11-yard loss as Chicago was trying to mount a final rally just after the two-minute warning. Vea tallied a career-high 6.5 sacks last year and is off to a good start this season with his Week 2 performance. He's recorded seven total tackles through two contests.
