Tandy (hip) did not register any statistics in Sunday's 30-27 loss to the Bills and was in on only five defensive snaps.
Tandy was making his return from a two-game absence but ended up barely seeing the field. Meanwhile, fellow veteran T.J. Ward logged 24 snaps at the free safety position, significantly outpacing Tandy on the afternoon. With the Buccaneers' secondary struggling in all facets, it remains to be seen if head coach Dirk Koetter will have Tandy back to his usual volume of playing time in Week 8 against the Panthers.
Tandy will suit up for the first time since Week 4 and reclaim his usual starting free safety spot. The fifth-year veteran could conceivably cede some snaps to rookie Justin Evans, who has seen plenty of extra playing time during Tandy's absence.
Tandy (hip) practiced in full capacity Friday and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Bills, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports.
Tandy hasn't played since Week 4 against the Giants, but a full practice is a good sign. However, if he is able to suit up, he may not face a full workload, considering he could well split snaps with T.J. Ward, who is also nursing a hip injury. Tandy shouldn't be considered an IDP option until he can play almost a full snap count, and that likely won't happen this week.
Tandy (hip) will not play in Week 6 against the Cardinals, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports.
Tandy turned in limited practices all week, but his progress wasn't sufficient to allow him to suit up Sunday. He'll thus miss his second consecutive contest, meaning either T.J. Ward (hip) -- who's questionable in his own right -- or 2017 second-round pick Justin Evans will man the free safety spot opposite Chris Conte.
Tandy (hip) was a limited practice participant Wednesday, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports.
Tandy was inactive for last Thursday's loss to the Patriots with the hip injury that he'd suffered in a Week 4 win against the Giants. He'd missed all three practice days leading up to the contest against New England, so Wednesday's participation level was actually a step in the right direction. The next couple of days should shed light on Tandy's chances of taking the field against the Cardinals in Week 6.
