  • 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 ESPN.com 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: 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: 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: 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: 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.
