  • Buccaneers' Joe Tryon-Shoyinka: Ups production in second season

    Tryon-Shoyinka posted 40 tackles (23 solo), including four sacks, and defensed two passes across 17 games during the 2022 regular season.

    The 2021 first-round pick also tallied two tackles (one solo) in 41 snaps during the wild-card loss to the Cowboys. Tryon-Shoyinka played a career-high 806 snaps on defense during the regular season, which led to him boosting his rookie-season tackle total by 11 stops and matching his 2021 sack tally as well. Tryon-Shoyinka could be in line for an even larger role next season if Lavonte David departs via free agency.

  • Buccaneers' Joe Tryon-Shoyinka: Career outing Sunday

    Tryon-Shoyinka recorded seven solo tackles during Sunday's 30-24 victory versus Carolina.

    Tryon-Shoyinka recorded a career high in tackles while also logging more than four stops for the first time this season Week 17. The second-year linebacker opened the season in a rotational role at edge rusher, though he has now played all but one defensive snap with Genard Avery (abdomen) and Shaquil Barrett (Achilles) both on IR over the past three weeks. With the NFC South now officially locked up, it's possible Tryon-Shoyinka could play decreased snaps if Tampa Bay decides to rest some starters Week 18 against Atlanta.

  • Buccaneers' Joe Tryon-Shoyinka: Good to go Sunday

    Tryon-Shoyinka (hip) is active for Sunday's game against the Bengals, Jenna Laine of reports.

    Tryon-Shoyinka will be available to start at linebacker in Sunday's contest versus Cincinnati, after he dealt with a hip issue throughout the week. With both Carl Nassib (pectoral) and Genard Avery (abdomen) ruled out this weekend, the 2021 first-rounder will likely be called upon to handle more snaps than this usual workload.

  • Buccaneers' Joe Tryon-Shoyinka: Iffy for Sunday

    Tryon-Shoyinka (hip) is questionable for Sunday's matchup against the Bengals, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Tryon-Shoyinka submitted a full practice Friday after being limited Wednesday and Thursday due to a hip injury he sustained in Tampa Bay's Week 14 blowout loss to the 49ers. However, he's still considered questionable for Week 15. The second-year pass rusher has yet to miss a game this season, totaling 25 tackles, 3.5 sacks and one pass defense.

  • Buccaneers' Joe Tryon-Shoyinka: Limited at practice Wednesday

    Tryon-Shoyinka (hip) was a limited participant at Wednesday's practice, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Tryon-Shoyinka sustained a hip injury during the team's Week 14 blowout loss to the 49ers and didn't return. His participation at practice, albeit in a limited fashion, Wednesday is encouraging, but he'll likely have to log at least one full session to avoid an injury designation for Sunday's matchup against the Bengals.

  • Buccaneers' Joe Tryon-Shoyinka: Sustains hip injury

    Tryon-Shoyinka sustained a hip injury during Sunday's loss to the 49ers.

    Tryon-Shoyinka was considered questionable to return to Sunday's matchup, and he didn't return to the blowout loss. It's unclear whether he'll be available for next Sunday's game against the Bengals.

  • Buccaneers' Joe Tryon-Shoyinka: Gets to quarterback in win

    Tryon-Shoyinka posted two solo tackles, including one sack, during the Buccaneers' 21-16 win over the Seahawks in Week 10.

    The second-year edge rusher was able to push his season total to 3.5 sacks -- just a half-sack away from tying the four he garnered in his 2021 rookie campaign -- with his second QB takedown in the last three contests. Tryon-Shoyinka logged over 40 snaps for the third straight game as well, but he's still posted three stops or less in all but the Week 2 contest versus the Saints (four tackles).

  • Buccaneers' Joe Tryon-Shoyinka: Records sack in Week 8 loss

    Tryon-Shoyinka recorded three tackles (two solo), including a sack, during the Buccaneers' 27-22 loss to the Ravens in Week 8.

    The second-year linebacker logged a solid 45 snaps and was able to record his second full sack of the campaign. Tryon-Shoyinka also tied his second-highest tackle total of the season in the loss, but his relatively modest production -- 18 tackles, 2.5 sacks -- despite an average of 44 snaps per contest mostly keeps him off the IDP radar.

  • Buccaneers' Joe Tryon-Shoyinka: Gets first full sack in Week 5

    Tryon-Shoyinka tallied two tackles (one solo), including one sack, during the Buccaneers' 21-15 win over the Falcons in Week 5.

    Tryon-Shoyinka came into the season with elevated expectations after recording four sacks alongside 29 tackles in a rotational role over 17 games as a rookie in 2021. While his start hasn't been poor statistically -- he's recorded 11 tackles overall when including his production against Atlanta -- his takedown of Marcus Mariota was his first full sack after being credited with a half-sack versus the Saints in Week 2.

  • Buccaneers' Joe Tryon-Shoyinka: Set for big Year 2 leap

    Tryon-Shoyinka is expected to hold down a starting job as a prototypical 3-4 defensive end/outside linebacker this season after filling a variety of roles as a rookie in 2021, Brianna Dix of the team's official site reports.

    The 2021 first-round pick logged 536 snaps from scrimmage as a rookie while serving as an edge rusher, playing a three-technique spot and also dropping into coverage on occasion. Dix notes Tryon-Shoyinka will now be entrusted with a starting role following the team's decision to not re-sign Jason Pierre-Paul, and the athletic second-year pro has already been validating that trust early in camp by flashing the impressive pass-rushing skills that helped him record four sacks as a rookie.

  • Buccaneers' Joe Tryon-Shoyinka: Ties career high in tackles

    Tryon-Shoyinka posted four tackles (three solo) across 53 snaps in the Buccaneers' 28-24 win over the Jets in Week 17.

    The rookie drew another start for Jason Pierre-Paul (shoulder) and turned in a markedly better performance than Week 16, when he was blanked across the stat sheet on 51 snaps versus the Panthers. Tryon-Shoyinka's tackle tally matched a career high just established Week 15 against the Saints, and he could be in for one more turn with the starters in the regular-season finale against Carolina.

  • Buccaneers' Joe Tryon-Shoyinka: Filling in for Pierre-Paul

    Tryon-Shoyinka is expected to start at outside linebacker Sunday against the Panthers with Jason Pierre-Paul (shoulder) ruled out ahead of the contest, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

    The last time he started in place of an injured Pierre-Paul in Week 4 against the Patriots, Tryon-Shoyinka stepped up and notched a pair of sacks. He probably can't be expected to replicate that performance, but the rookie first-round pick has shown enough promise as a pass rusher this season that the dropoff from Pierre-Paul to him shouldn't be too steep.
