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.
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.
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.
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.
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 will have to wait until next week for his potential return at least. Coach Dirk Koetter indicated the 23-year-old has a more positive outlook than just a few days ago, and is about halfway through the 21-day window in which he can return since he started practicing at the end of October.
