Buccaneers' Kendell Beckwith: Hits Reserve/NFI list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beckwith (ankle) was placed on the reserve/non-football injury list Friday, Scott Smith of the team's official site reports.

The third-year linebacker's career thus continues on pause for the time being following an April 2018 car accident. Beckwith's presence would be particularly valued in a season during which the Buccaneers will undergo a transition to a 3-4 defense under new coordinator Todd Bowles, but with an uncertain timetable for any return to on-field work, he can't be counted on for any significant role in 2019 at the moment. Beckwith did manage to participate in practice on a limited basis during a three-week roster-exemption window last season after opening the campaign on the NFI list, but he was never cleared for a return to game action. Shaquil Barrett and Deone Buccannon were brought in during free agency as linebacker options to help offset Beckwith's absence and Kwon Alexander's departure to the 49ers, but Jason Pierre-Paul's neck injury, if season-ending, would naturally represent another major step back at the position.

Buccaneers' Kendell Beckwith: Unfavorable outlook for 2019
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beckwith (ankle) is meeting with multiple specialists and the team is pessimistic about his chances to play in 2019, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

Beckwith missed the entire 2018 season after fracturing his ankle in a car accident, and he's in danger of missing another year. The 2017 third-round pick posted 73 tackles and a sack in his rookie campaign.

Buccaneers' Kendell Beckwith: No word on recovery progress
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

General manager Jason Licht declined to give an update on Beckwith's recovery from a fractured ankle Tuesday, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

Beckwith is managing his recovery from a fractured ankle sustained in a car accident last April. The third-year pro spent all of 2018 on the NFI list but did briefly surface in team practices before ultimately being shut down for the season. It remains to be seen whether Beckwith, who racked up 73 tackles and a sack during his rookie season, will recover in time to participate in OTAs.

Buccaneers' Kendell Beckwith: Will not play in 2018
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Dirk Koetter said Monday that Beckwith (ankle) won't play during the 2018 season, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

The Buccaneers have been stashing Beckwith on the Non-Football Injury list all season after he fractured his ankle during a car accident in the spring. Koetter's announcement means that the linebacker will now revert to injured reserve and turn his focus towars recovering in time to participate in OTAs.

Buccaneers' Kendell Beckwith: Won't play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Dirk Koetter said Friday that Beckwith (ankle) will not play Week 11, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

Beckwith continues to manage his recovery from a fractured ankle sustained during a car accident this offseason, and will not make his 2018 debut Week 11. With fellow linebacker Lavonte David (knee) also ruled out for Sunday's tilt against the Giants, second-year pro Riley Bullough could be in line for a significant uptick in defensive snaps.

Buccaneers' Kendell Beckwith: Won't return Week 10
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beckwith (ankle) won't be activated off the Non-Football Injury list prior to Sunday's game against the Redskins, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

Beckwith continues his recovery from the ankle fracture sustained in a car accident this spring, but he'll have to wait until at least next week to make his return. Coach Dirk Koetter indicated the 23-year-old has a more positive outlook than just a few days ago, and he's about halfway through the 21-day window in which he's eligible for return.

Buccaneers' Kendell Beckwith: Practices Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beckwith (ankle) rejoined practice Wednesday, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Beckwith's appearance at practice opens his 21-day evaluation window for a potential return to the field. He spent the first eight weeks of the season on the Non-Football Injury/reserve list after breaking his ankle in an April car accident, but it appears he's nearly healthy and will have a good chance to take the field in 2018. As a rookie, Beckwith racked up 73 tackles (60 solo) and a sack while playing 850 snaps. There's a good chance he will retake a job in the starting 11 when he rejoins the team.

Buccaneers' Kendell Beckwith: Return timetable remains uncertain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beckwith (ankle), who was placed on the Non-Football Injury/reserve list Sept. 1 due to an offseason automobile accident, remains without a firm timetable for return, Scott Smith of the team's official site reports. "I'm not sure if he'll be able to practice next week," said head coach Dirk Koetter. "I think we've got to remember Kendell suffered a serious injury. Although it was a non-football injury, it was serious, and he had a serious surgery. He is fighting hard to make it back. I'm not sure if he'll be quite ready next week to practice."

The second-year linebacker is eligible to begin practicing next week after completing a full six weeks on the NFI list, but Koetter's comments cast plenty of doubt on that being a realistic proposition. The team will have a 21-day window from Monday's date to decide what Beckwith's status will be for the remainder of the season. In the interim, Adarius Taylor figures to continue filling in for Beckwith at strong-side linebacker.

Buccaneers' Kendell Beckwith: Placed on NFI/reserve list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beckwith (ankle) was placed on the Non-Football Injury/reserve list Saturday, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Beckwith had been on the NFI list for the duration of training camp and he's yet to return from his fractured ankle. He's eligible to return to action in six weeks, meaning he'll miss at least five of Tampa Bay's regular-season games as he works his way back to action.

Buccaneers' Kendell Beckwith: No timeline for return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beckwith (ankle) does not have a definitive timeline to return to the field and the linebacker will likely be unavailable for the start of the regular season, Jenna Laine of ESPN reports.

Beckwith, who fractured his ankle in a car accident this past April, opened training camp on the Non-Football Injury list and still hasn't returned to practice. Until he's back in commission, Tampa Bay will need to roll with Adarius Taylor and Devante Bond at strong-side linebacker.

Buccaneers' Kendell Beckwith: Placed on NFI list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beckwith (ankle) will begin camp on the Non-Football Injury list, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports.

Beckwith fractured his ankle this offseason in a car accident and is continuing his rehab after undergoing surgery back in April. Once he is fully healed, the linebacker can resume practicing at any time.

Buccaneers' Kendell Beckwith: Back rehabbing at facility
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beckwith, who suffered a fractured ankle in a single-car accident April 17 and had surgery the same day, is back rehabbing at the team facility, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports.

The second-year linebacker has also been participating in team meetings and is getting around the facility with the aid of a scooter. Beckwith's recovery timeline remains unclear, but he appears to be on the road to open training camp as at the very least a limited participant.

Buccaneers' Kendell Beckwith: Injured in car accident
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beckwith will miss OTAs and is questionable for training camp after fracturing his ankle in a single-car accident Tuesday, Scott Smith of the team's official website reports.

Beckwith, a passenger in the car, underwent same-day surgery on his ankle. The second-year linebacker played in all 16 games of the 2017 season, recording 846 snaps, 73 tackles and two sacks. The timetable for Beckwith's return is uncertain.

Buccaneers' Kendell Beckwith: Racks up 73 stops as rookie
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beckwith finished the 2017 season with 73 tackles (60 solo), including six for loss, one sack, one forced fumble and two passes defensed over 16 games.

The energetic LSU product beat the odds by not only participating in all of training camp following a November 2016 ACL tear while with the Tigers, but eventually securing a starting job to open the regular season. Beckwith opened the Week 2 opener against the Bears as the strong-side linebacker before shifting to the middle early in that contest when Kwon Alexander injured his hamstring. The 23-year-old remained at that spot until Alexander returned in Week 7, a development that was marked by a notable drop in IDP production for Beckwith. While he compiled an impressive 41 tackles over his five games in Alexander's spot, Beckwith managed just 32 stops over the remaining 11 games. He did post a pair of five-tackle outings in Weeks 15 and 16, which represented a slight increase in productivity. Following a college career in which he generated a solid amount of impact plays (24.5 tackles for loss, 7.5 sacks, one interception, three forced fumbles and three fumble recoveries), overall expectations were likely higher for Beckwith, but a full offseason in the Buccaneers' system and several additional months of distance from his aforementioned knee injury leave him poised for a more productive sophomore campaign.

Buccaneers' Kendell Beckwith: Five tackles in Week 15 loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beckwith posted five tackles (four solo) in Monday night's 24-21 loss to the Falcons.

The rookie posted his best tackle numbers since Week 6, as he was one of the few linebackers left standing after the Buccaneers suffered a jaw-dropping barrage of injuries during the contest. Tampa came into the contest without Lavonte David (hamstring) and then lost Adarius Glanton (leg) and Devante Bond (neck) as the night unfolded. Beckwith could be in for another solid tackle total in Week 16 against a Panthers team that focuses fairly heavily on the running game and short passing attack.

Buccaneers' Kendell Beckwith: Tallies first career sack in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beckwith posted two solo tackles, including one for loss, and one sack in Sunday's 15-10 win over the Jets.

The rookie linebacker notched his first career quarterback takedown when he brought Josh McCown down for a key eight-yard loss at the Buccaneers' 20-yard line late in the first half. The sack left the Jets in a 3rd-and-long situation that led to them having to settle for a Chandler Catanzaro 47-yard field goal. That impact play aside, Beckwith has seen a steep drop in production over the last three games, as he's managed just five tackles over that span. As a result, his IDP stock remains low for the time being.

Buccaneers' Kendell Beckwith: One tackle in blowout loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beckwith (knee) posted one tackle in Sunday's 30-10 loss to the Saints.

The rookie linebacker played through his knee ailment and logged 34 snaps, but he was notably unproductive for the second consecutive contest. Beckwith has just three stops in the last two contests after posting 45 tackles in his first six games. Beckwith's sudden downturn in production -- which has coincided with Kwon Alexander's return to action from a hamstring injury -- has him off the IDP radar for the moment.

Buccaneers' Kendell Beckwith: Playing in Week 9
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beckwith (knee) is active for Sunday's Week 9 tilt against the Saints, Scott Smith of the team's official site reports.

The rookie linebacker has been dealing with the knee ailment since exiting early the Week 8 loss to the Panthers and then practicing in a limited fashion this past week. However, Beckwith is apparently ready to roll against a versatile Saints offense that should particularly keep him busy with a two-pronged ground attack of Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara.

Buccaneers' Kendell Beckwith: Questionable for Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beckwith (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Saints, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Beckwith was limited in practice this week after sustaining the injury in Sunday's loss to the Panthers. There's no real indication on whether the rookie third-round pick is expected to play at this point. Adarius Glanton would likely step in at strong-side linebacker if Beckwith cannot suit up Sunday.

Buccaneers' Kendell Beckwith: Limited in Wednesday's practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Beckwith (knee) was limited in Wednesday's practice, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports.

The rookie linebacker exited last Sunday's loss to the Panthers with the knee ailment, and three days later, it's still affecting him enough to keep him from a full practice. Beckwith's status will continue to be monitored through the remainder of the practice week ahead of a Week 9 road showdown with the Saints. If he's ultimately unable to suit up, Adarius Glanton, who logged three starts at Beckwith's strong-side linebacker spot when the latter filled in for Kwon Alexander in the middle earlier in the season, would presumably get the call against New Orleans.
