Buccaneers' Jordan Whitehead: Placed on COVID list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Buccaneers placed Whitehead (shoulder) on the reserve/COVID-19 list Friday, NFL reporter Aaron Wilson reports.

Whitehead will have to isolate and progress through the league's COVID-19 protocols before he can attend Tampa Bay's training camp practices, which kick off July 25. The starting safety is working his way back from February shoulder surgery.

Buccaneers' Jordan Whitehead: Progressing well in recovery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Bruce Arians said Whitehead (shoulder) may not practice at mini-camp but is "looking really good" in his recovery, Mark Cook of reports.

The 24-year-old underwent surgery to repair a torn labrum in his left shoulder in mid-February after the team's Super Bowl victory, and his recovery has apparently gone well over the past three months. The fact Whitehead hasn't already been ruled out from practicing at mini-camp indicates he's on track to be ready for the start of training camp in July

Buccaneers' Jordan Whitehead: Surgery this week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Whitehead is scheduled to undergo shoulder surgery this week, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

Whitehead has been suffering through a torn labrum in his left shoulder since exiting the divisional-round matchup against the Packers with the injury. The starting safety pushed through and played in the Super Bowl against the Chiefs, where he posted two solo tackles. The 23-year-old will aim to recover in 4-to-6 months, which would likely put him on track for training camp participation.

Buccaneers' Jordan Whitehead: Caps off strong '20 fighting injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Whitehead, who logged two solo tackles across 51 snaps while fighting through a partially torn labrum during Sunday's Super Bowl LV win over the Chiefs, finished the 2020 regular season with 74 tackles (53 solo), two sacks, two interceptions, four defensed passes overall, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery across 16 games.

The soon-to-be fourth-year pro was able to play the full regular season for the first time in his career, setting new career highs in sacks and interceptions while also forcing his first fumble. Whitehead also allowed a sub-60.0 percent completion rate in primary coverage for the second straight campaign, and he followed up his solid numbers with nine tackles (eight solo) and two forced fumbles across the Buccaneers' four-game postseason run, despite exiting the NFC Championship Game win over the Packers with a shoulder injury after separating the Aaron Jones from the ball in the third quarter of that contest. Whitehead enters the final year of his rookie contract in 2021, and it remains to be seen whether the organization will be interested in signing him beyond next season with a preemptive extension this offseason.

Buccaneers' Jordan Whitehead: Playing with partially torn labrum
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Whitehead, who won't carry an official injury designation into Sunday's Super Bowl LV matchup against the Chiefs, nevertheless will play the game with a partially torn labrum in his shoulder, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Stroud notes that while the tear is a partial one, it's also been deemed as "significant" and will require offseason surgery. Whitehead will don a harness in order to get through Sunday's game and help try and slow down the high-octane Chiefs passing attack. The third-year safety suffered a shoulder injury during the NFC Championship Game win over the Packers at some point in the early stages of the contest and then aggravated it to its current state on a bone-jarring tackle of Aaron Jones that forced a key fumble early in the third quarter.

Buccaneers' Jordan Whitehead: Cleared to face KC
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Whitehead (shoulder/knee) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's Super Bowl matchup with the Chiefs, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

Forced out of the NFC Championship Game in the fourth quarter, Whitehead seems to have benefitted from the week off between games. Bucs safety Antoine Winfield (ankle) and linebacker Lavonte David (hamstring) also will play.

Buccaneers' Jordan Whitehead: Returns to practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Whitehead (shoulder/knee) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

According to Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times, Whitehead was donning a red no-contact jersey during the session. No matter the case, Whitehead's presence on the field was an encouraging sign after he missed a trio of sessions last week. Fellow starting safety Antoine Winfield (ankle) was also limited at Wednesday's session.

Buccaneers' Jordan Whitehead: Not practicing yet
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Whitehead (shoulder/knee) missed a third straight practice Friday.

The Bucs estimate that Whitehead would be doubtful if they had a game this Sunday, while fellow starting safety Antoine Winfield (ankle) would be listed as questionable. Whitehead will still have another week to recover and get back on the practice field, but he does appear in some danger of missing the Super Bowl.

Buccaneers' Jordan Whitehead: Absent from practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Whitehead is listed as a non-participant on Wednesday's practice report with shoulder and knee injuries.

Whitehead was forced out of the Buccaneers' win over the Packers last weekend due to a labrum injury, but the knee issue is a new concern. The starting safety hasn't yet been ruled out for the Feb. 7 Super Bowl matchup with Kansas City, but at this time, his status appears to be truly up in the air.

Buccaneers' Jordan Whitehead: Status appears uncertain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Whitehead (shoulder) hasn't officially been ruled out for the Buccaneers' Super Bowl LV matchup with Chiefs on Feb. 7, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Rapoport's report seemingly aligns with one from Jenna Laine of, who previously relayed that Whitehead is expected to suit up versus Kansas City. That said, Whitehead will still need to prove his health after suffering a labrum injury during last weekend's win over the Packers, and Rapoport notes that the safety is also contending with additional shoulder issues. Andrew Adams would be the top candidate to start at free safety for Tampa Bay if Whitehead is unable to return for the Super Bowl.

Buccaneers' Jordan Whitehead: Should be ready for Super Bowl
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Whitehead (shoulder) is expected to play in the Super Bowl against the Chiefs, reports.

Whitehead exited the NFC Championship Game early in the third quarter and didn't return. However, it appears the 23-year-old will be able to play through the issue, so he's on track to start at free safety Feb. 7. Through 16 regular-season games, Whitehead produced 74 tackles, two sacks, four pass breakups and two interceptions. He's added seven tackles and two forced fumbles in the postseason as well.

Buccaneers' Jordan Whitehead: Prognosis still unclear
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Whitehead, who logged five tackles (four solo, including one for loss) and forced a key fumble in Sunday's 31-26 win over the Packers before exiting with a shoulder injury, remains without an official diagnosis for the time being, Jenna Laine of reports.

Whitehead actually sustained his injury courtesy of a tackle on Jamaal Williams, but it was the impressive, fumble-forcing blow he delivered on Aaron Jones early in the third quarter that knocked him out of Sunday's contest for good. The Buccaneers were able to get by the rest of the way against the Packers without both Whitehead and the absent Antoine Winfield (ankle), but they'll need all the reinforcements they can get for a Super Bowl LV matchup versus the Chiefs on Sunday, Feb. 7.

Buccaneers' Jordan Whitehead: Won't return Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Whitehead (shoulder) has been ruled out for the rest of Sunday's NFC Championship Game against the Packers, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

Whitehead was injured making a tackle on Packers running back Jamaal Williams in the third quarter. Just a few plays beforehand, Whitehead forced a key fumble on Aaron Jones that set up the Buccaneers for their fourth touchdown of the afternoon. Since Antoine Winfield (ankle) is already inactive, the Buccaneers will turn to two backup safeties -- Andrew Adams and Mike Edwards -- for the rest of the game.

Buccaneers' Jordan Whitehead: Suiting up Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Whitehead (knee) is active for Sunday's NFC divisional-round matchup in New Orleans.

Whitehead was limited in practice Friday, but he'll be good to go for Sunday's playoff game against the Saints. He'll draw his usual start at free safety, just as he did during all 16 regular-season games and the wild-card win over Washington.

Buccaneers' Jordan Whitehead: Knee injury pops up
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Whitehead (knee) is questionable for Sunday's NFC divisional-round game against the Saints, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports.

Whitehead was added to the injury report Friday as a limited practice participant. It's always concerning when a player is added so late in the week, so the third-year safety may be trending toward a game-time decision. Whitehead played all 16 games during the regular season and posted 74 tackles, four pass breakups, two interceptions and two sacks. Mike Edwards should slot in at free safety if Whitehead is ruled out.

Buccaneers' Jordan Whitehead: Nabs second interception
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Whitehead posted seven tackles (four solo), including one for loss, and recorded an interception in the Buccaneers' 27-24 loss to the Rams on Monday night.

The third-year safety came up with one of a few positive plays for the Buccaneers secondary on a night when Jared Goff lit them up for 376 yards and three touchdowns, picking off the Rams quarterback at his 46-yard line midway through the fourth quarter with the Buccaneers down by a touchdown. Whitehead's timely pick led to a game-tying score on the short field for Tampa Bay and qualified as his second of the season. Despite also producing a solid 56 tackles, two sacks and a forced fumble through 11 games, Whitehead has had his share of troubles in coverage, allowing a 72.2 percent completion rate on the 18 throws he's faced as a primary defender.

Buccaneers' Jordan Whitehead: Season-best tackle tally in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Whitehead posted eight tackles (five solo), including two for loss, in the Buccaneers' 38-3 loss to the Saints on Sunday night.

The 23-year-old set a new season high in tackles with the performance, one-upping the seven stops he'd posted against the Giants in Week 8. Whitehead is now averaging 5.0 tackles per contest and has also recorded the first two sacks of his career this season, but he is allowing a career-worst 68.8 percent of passes to be completed against him in primary coverage. The third-year pro will look to put together another productive outing in a Week 10 battle against the Panthers.

Buccaneers' Jordan Whitehead: No injury designation for Week 6
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Whitehead (knee) was a limited practice participant Friday and doesn't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against the Packers, Adam Caplan of Sirius XM Radio reports.

Whitehead sandwiched Thursday's missed session between a pair of limited practices, but he apparently showed enough to be kept off the final injury report. The safety should be out there on game day as the Buccaneers try to slow down an explosive Packers offense that's averaging a league-high 38.0 points per game.

Buccaneers' Jordan Whitehead: Downgraded Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Whitehead (knee) didn't participate in Thursday's practice.

Whitehead was at least able to practice in a limited capacity Wednesday, so this news is certainly a worrisome sign for his chances to suit up in Week 6. Whitehead has been strong in his starting role this year, racking up 18 solo tackles and an interception. If he's forced to miss Sunday's game against Green Bay, look for Andrew Adams to draw the start.

Buccaneers' Jordan Whitehead: Managing injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Whitehead (knee) was a limited participant during Wednesday's practice.

Whitehead suited up in 100 percent of the team's defensive snaps during Thursday's loss to Chicago, so it's likely that the team is managing his practice reps ahead of Week 6. The Pittsburgh product has been solid this campaign as a starter, recording 26 tackles (18 solo), two sacks and an interception through five games. If Whitehead was to miss any time due to injury, Andrew Adams would be in line for the start at free safety.
