Buccaneers' William Gholston: Already ruled out for Week 11
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gholston (neck) has been ruled out for Sunday's Week 11 tilt against the Dolphins by head coach Dirk Koetter, Scott Smith of the team's official site reports.

The 26-year-old defensive end endured some tense moments in the Week 9 loss to the Saints when he was carted off the field with his injury, but he has been slowly working back toward normal functionality. Gholston was still wearing a neck brace last week, and it doesn't appear as if he'll return to the practice field until Week 12 prep begins, at the earliest.

Buccaneers' William Gholston: Ruled out for Week 10
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gholston (neck), who was carted off the field during Sunday's 30-10 loss to the Saints, is already ruled out for Week 10, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports. "Still in a neck brace and not ready yet to play football," said head coach Dirk Koetter. "He has been walking around, though."

Gholston was expected to miss this coming Sunday's game against the Jets at a minimum, so Wednesday's official confirmation comes as no surprise. The 26-year-old defensive end has 24 tackles (12 solo) on the season, but he's yet to record a sack, turnover or pass defensed. Ryan Russell could draw the start in Gholston's stead this coming Sunday, while veteran Darryl Tapp is also in line to be active for the first time since signing with the team on Oct. 24.

Buccaneers' William Gholston: Heads off on cart
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gholston was carted off the field during Sunday's game against the Saints due to a neck injury and won't return.

It was a scary sight in New Orleans, but no specifics have been released on the injury's severity. Gholston has compiled 22 tackles (11 solo) this season, and Ryan Russell will fill in at defensive end for the rest of the game.

Buccaneers' William Gholston: Racks up nine stops Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gholston compiled nine tackles (three solo), including one for loss, in Sunday's 34-17 loss to the Vikings.

The fifth-year defensive end has already compiled 14 tackles through the Bucs' first two contests, putting him on pace for what would be a career-high 112 stops. Gholston has never logged more than 67 tackles in any campaign, so he's likely to regress towards the mean over time. Moreover, the absence of tackle Chris Baker (illness) Sunday may have played a large part in Gholston's unexpected boost in production. The Michigan State product retains modest value in very deep IDP formats, but his lack of sacks and turnovers caps his overall upside.

Buccaneers' William Gholston: Back at practice Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Gholston (undisclosed) returned to practice Tuesday, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

The fifth-year defensive end had missed last Saturday's exhibition against the Browns with his ailment, the details of which remain undisclosed. Gholston, who re-upped with the Bucs on a five-year deal last March, will start at left defensive end again this coming season.
