  • 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.

  • Buccaneers' Joe Tryon-Shoyinka: Records pair of sacks in win

    Tryon-Shoyinka posted two tackles -- both sacks -- and was credited with four quarterback hits overall in the Buccaneers' 19-17 win over the Patriots on Sunday night.

    The rookie saw extended playing time again with Jason Pierre-Paul (shoulder) sidelined a second straight game, logging 50 snaps (85 percent) overall. Tryon-Shoyinka certainly found a way to make an impact with his pair of stops, with the two takedowns of Mac Jones serving as the first pair of sacks of the first-round pick's young career. Tryon-Shoyinka is projected to return to a rotational role if Pierre-Paul is healthy enough to face the Dolphins in Week 5, but the sack opportunities could continue to manifest fairly consistently if he's used primarily on passing downs.

  • Buccaneers' Joe Tryon-Shoyinka: Modest numbers in first start

    Tryon-Shoyinka drew the start in pace of Jason Pierre-Paul (shoulder) in the Week 3 loss to the Rams and posted two solo tackles and a defensed pass across 51 snaps.

    The rookie first-round pick ended up playing on 78 percent of the defensive snaps and logged another 10 on special teams, making it his busiest day as a pro yet. Tryon-Shoyinka has recorded a pair of tackles in each of his first three games, and with Pierre-Paul trending toward sitting out at least one more game, the 22-year-old is likely to draw a second straight start in the Week 4 showdown against the Patriots.

  • Buccaneers' Joe Tryon: Set for first NFL start

    Tryon-Shoyinka will make his first career start Sunday against the Rams in place of the injured Jason Pierre-Paul (shoulder), Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Tampa Bay's rookie first-round pick will get his first starting opportunity after working as a reserve over the first two weeks. Tryon-Shoyinka racked up two tackles apiece in Weeks 1 and 2 while playing around a quarter of the Buccaneers' defensive snaps in each, but he's expected to play a significantly larger role for the duration of JPP's absence.

  • Buccaneers' Joe Tryon: Already standing out

    Tryon (knee) has practiced without restrictions and looked explosive over the first three practices of training camp, Carmen Vitali of the Buccaneers' official site reports.

    The rookie underwent minor arthroscopic surgery in the offseason but was ready to go from the first day of training camp. Tryon has already caught the attention of former college teammate Vita Vea, who lauded the linebacker's explosiveness and athleticism in Tuesday's session. In addition to his considerable physical skills, Tryon will have the advantage of expert tutelage from the likes of fellow linebackers Lavonte David, Devin White, Shaquil Barrett and Jason Pierre-Paul as he gets his NFL bearings.

  • Buccaneers' Joe Tryon: Likely to log heavy preseason work

    Tryon (knee) is projected to log plenty of playing time in the preseason while auditioning to open the season as the primary rotational pass rusher off the bench, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

    The rookie will ideally show enough to garner and then hold on to that role, a development that would serve to help keep the likes of Shaquil Barrett and Jason Pierre-Paul fresher throughout the season. Tryon underwent what was termed a "minor" arthroscopic knee procedure earlier this offseason, but he should have a good chance to open training camp without limitations.

  • Buccaneers' Joe Tryon: Recovering from minor procedure

    Coach Bruce Arians said Friday that Tryon (knee) is recovering from a "minor scope" undergone earlier this offseason, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

    Arians said that Tyron will rest until mandatory minicamp in June. At that time, the rookie first-round pick could be eased back into action. It doesn't appear that there's any real reason to worry about Tyron's availability for the start of the 2021 season.
