Buccaneers' Shaquil Barrett: Officially active Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barrett (oblique) is active for Sunday's game against the Panthers in London, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports.

As anticipated, Barrett will get the green light to play Week 6, even though the oblique injury prevented him from practicing Wednesday and Thursday and limited his activity Friday. The NFL's sack leader with nine through five games, Barrett has enjoyed a breakout season that should earn him a healthy payday in free agency next spring.

Buccaneers' Shaquil Barrett: Set to play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barrett (oblique) is in line to play Sunday against the Panthers in London, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Barrett leads the NFL with nine sacks, so his presence in London is key for the Buccaneers defense.

Buccaneers' Shaquil Barrett: Managing oblique injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barrett has an oblique injury and is questionable for Sunday's game against the Panthers in London, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports.

Barrett was clear of the injury report until Friday when he was listed as a limited participant. The 26-year-old has enjoyed a dominant start to the season with nine sacks, three forced fumbles and an interception through five games, so he would be a significant loss for the Buccaneers if he can't suit up.

Buccaneers' Shaquil Barrett: Will suit up Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barrett (groin) won't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game versus the Saints.

The Buccaneers' most disruptive defensive asset was hampered by a groin injury during Wednesday's and Thursday's practices, but it appears that was simply a precautionary measure as he logged a full practice Friday and will play Sunday. Barrett has nine sacks, three forced fumbles and an interception through four games, and he'll look to continue his tear against Teddy Bridgewater and the Saints.

Buccaneers' Shaquil Barrett: Upgrades to limited practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barrett (groin) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice.

Barrett wasn't able to practice to begin the week Wednesday, but he's now resumed working in a limited capacity. It's possible the Buccaneers are taking a cautious approach to Barrett's recovery, considering that he's already recorded nine sacks in four contests, solidifying himself as a pillar of the team's defense. Friday's final injury report of the week will further illuminate Barrett's chances of suiting up versus New Orleans on Sunday.

Buccaneers' Shaquil Barrett: Sidelined with groin injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barrett (groin) didn't participate in Wednesday's practice, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

Barrett has forced himself into the conversation for Defensive Player of the Year after an explosive first quarter of the season in which he recorded nine sacks, two pass breakups, three forced fumbles and an interception. Being added to the injury report Wednesday puts his chances of playing Sunday versus the Saints in jeopardy, though. Barrett still has two more practices to get back onto the field before that contest. While Tampa Bay has no true replacement for him, Anthony Nelson figures to fill in at outside linebacker if Barrett can't go.

Buccaneers' Shaquil Barrett: Continues eye-popping tear
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barrett finished with four tackles (three solo), including 1.5 for loss, one sack, one interception and another pass defensed in the Buccaneers' 55-40 win over the Rams on Sunday.

With a two-time Defensive Player of the Year in Aaron Donald on the opposite sideline, Barrett continued the early push of his own candidacy for the award Sunday with yet another impactful performance. The sixth-year linebacker was once again deployed as a disruptive force and snagged his first interception of the season on an athletic play late in the third quarter inside Tampa territory. He then helped put the exclamation point on the win via a fumble-causing sack of Jared Goff with 1:06 remaining and the Buccaneers hanging on to an eight-point lead, with Ndamukong Suh picking up the loose ball and rumbling 55 yards for a game-clinching fumble return touchdown. Barrett now has nine sacks on the campaign and has become an elite IDP asset based on the manner in which he's been utilized in coordinator Todd Bowles' 3-4 scheme. He'll look to continue his elite level of play against the Saints in a Week 5 divisional clash.

Buccaneers' Shaquil Barrett: Racking up sacks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barrett made four sacks and forced two fumbles in Sunday's loss to the Giants.

Barrett is now out of the shadow of Von Miller in Denver, and he's carving out his own success in Tampa Bay. Through three games, the 26-year-old has accumulated a league-high eight sacks with the Browns' Myles Garrett (six) trailing in second. Barrett's pace should slow down at some point, but he'll look to keep it up in Week 4 versus the Rams and Jared Goff, who has been dropped six times so far.

Buccaneers' Shaquil Barrett: Full practice Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barrett (groin) was a full participant in Thursday's practice, Eduardo A. Encina of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Barrett was limited Wednesday due to a groin injury, but he appears back to full health. The 26-year-old has compiled four sacks in just two games and will look to keep up his momentum Sunday versus the Giants.

Buccaneers' Shaquil Barrett: Surfaces on injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barrett (groin) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports.

Barrett has been a menace for opposing offenses, piling up four sacks over the first two games, and he's just 1.5 sacks from his career high already. He's now nursing a groin injury, though, but practicing even in a limited capacity is a good sign. Barrett will look to get up to full speed by Sunday's game versus the Giants.

Buccaneers' Shaquil Barrett: Notches three sacks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barrett had three tackles, all sacks, in Thursday's win over Carolina.

Barrett had a quiet first half but came alive in the third quarter as he brought down Cam Newton three times in a span of nine offensive plays for the Panthers. The 26-year-old has eight tackles (six solo) and four sacks through the first two weeks of the season.

Buccaneers' Shaquil Barrett: Earns sack in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barrett logged four total tackles and a sack in Sunday's season-opening loss to San Francisco.

Barrett was on the field for 56 of a possible 68 snaps on defense (82 percent) and eight of a possible 21 snaps on special teams (32 percent). The fifth-year-pro figures to see a starting role in Todd Bowles' 3-4 system this season. In his last four years with Denver, Barrett logged 137 total tackles, 14 sacks and seven forced fumbles over 61 games.

Buccaneers' Shaquil Barrett: Records sack in exhibition finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barrett totaled two tackles, including a sack, in the Buccaneers' 17-15 preseason win over the Cowboys on Thursday.

Barrett finished the preseason with five tackles and two sacks, a solid showing that helped cement his starting role at one of the outside linebacker spots in coordinator Todd Bowles' 3-4 defense. The 26-year-old already has 61 games of NFL experience through four seasons, and he's consistently demonstrated an ability to get to the quarterback as an occasional blitzer with 14 career sacks.

Buccaneers' Shaquil Barrett: Returns to practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barrett (ankle) is practicing Wednesday, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

Barrett missed multiple days of practice this week due to an ankle injury and now appears back to full health. The 26-year-old linebacker is on track for a starting role with the Buccaneers.

Buccaneers' Shaquil Barrett: Sidelined Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barrett did not practice Monday due to an ankle injury, Eduardo A. Encina of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

The nature and severity of Barrett's injury remain undisclosed at this time, though he's not expected to miss much time. When healthy, he projects to start in Tampa Bay's linebacker corps. Barrett played 20 defensive snaps and six snaps on special teams during Friday's preseason contest against the Steelers.

Buccaneers' Shaquil Barrett: Joins 3-4 transition in Tampa
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barrett is signing a one-year, $5 million contract with Tampa Bay, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Barrett caught on with the Denver practice squad as an undrafted rookie in 2014, eventually piling up 137 tackles, 14 sacks and seven forced fumbles in 61 games (15 starts, 1,856 defensive snaps) for the Broncos. He's a natural fit at outside linebacker with the Buccaneers transitioning to a 3-4 base scheme under new defensive coordinator Todd Bowles. The 26-year-old projects as a starter at this stage of the offseason, but things could change in a hurry if the Bucs draft an edge rusher (e.g. Kentucky's Josh Allen) at No. 5 overall. Barrett might also face some competition from disappointing 2016 second-round pick Noah Spence, who is expected to transition from defensive end to OLB.

Broncos' Shaquil Barrett: Ready to roll Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barrett (hip) was a full participant in practice Saturday and holds no injury designation for Monday's game against the Raiders, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports.

Barrett will rejoin the lineup after missing three straight games due to his hip injury. He should rotate in as a pass rusher for the Broncos, looking to add to his three sacks through 11 games played this season.

Broncos' Shaquil Barrett: Expected to play Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Broncos' coach Vance Joseph said he thinks Barrett (hip) will "be ready to go" for Monday's game against the Raiders, Aric DiLalla of the Broncos' official site reports.

Barrett hasn't played since Week 12 due to his hip injury, but he was limited in practice Thursday and appears to be recovering well. If he returns, he'll figure to see limited snaps while operating as a backup to starting outside linebackers Von Miller and Bradley Chubb.

Broncos' Shaquil Barrett: Ruled out for Week 15
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barrett (hip) is ruled out for Saturday's game against the Browns, Nicki Jhabvala of The Athletic reports.

Barrett continues to nurse a hip flexor injury sustained Week 12, and will not suit up against the Browns. As long as the 25-year-old remains sidelined, Jeff Holland will serve as the top backup to rookie Bradley Chubb.

Broncos' Shaquil Barrett: Won't play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Barrett (hip) was ruled out for Sunday's game against the 49ers, Ryan O'Halloran of The Denver Post reports.

Barrett suffered a hip flexor injury Week 12 against the Steelers and was expected to miss a few weeks, so his absence isn't surprising. The 25-year-old would need to show significant progress next week if he is to gain clearance to take the field Week 15 against Cleveland.
