by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Buccaneers' Anthony Nelson: Ruled out Week 12
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Bruce Arians said Friday that Nelson (hamstring) will not suit up against the Falcons on Sunday, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports.

Smith is set to miss a third consecutive contest due to his lingering hamstring issue. With Carl Nassib (groin) and Jason Pierre-Paul (knee) both nursing injuries, it's possible that Sam Acho and Kahzin Daniels could see increased reserve work during Sunday's tilt against the Falcons.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nelson (hamstring) was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Saints, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports.

Buccaneers' Anthony Nelson: Out Week 10
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nelson (hamstring) was ruled out for Sunday's game against the Cardinals, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports.

Coach Bruce Arians indicated earlier in the week that Nelson is unlikely to play, so it's no surprise to see he won't be suiting up. Newly-signed Kahzin Daniels should serve as Shaq Barrett's backup at right outside linebacker in Nelson's absence.

Buccaneers' Anthony Nelson: Unlikely to play Week 10
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nelson (hamstring), who missed practice Wednesday, is unlikely to play in Sunday's game against the Cardinals as per head coach Bruce Arians, Carmen Vitali of the team's official site reports.

Nelson exited Sunday's overtime loss to the Seahawks after just six snaps from scrimmage and nine on special teams due to his hamstring injury. Arians mentioned Wednesday that Nelson would "probably" not be ready to face Arizona in Week 10, which could leave the just-signed Kahzin Daniels as the primary backup to Shaq Barrett at right outside linebacker versus the Cardinals.

Buccaneers' Anthony Nelson: Done for day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nelson (hamstring) won't return to Sunday's game against Seattle, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports.

Following fellow edge-rusher Carl Nassib (groin) exiting the contest, the Buccaneers lost another one in the form of Nelson. It's unclear how Nelson picked up the injury, but it's not a good sign that it will force him to miss the remainder of the game. Kevin Minter could be in line to see increased snaps, and it's possible the team will have an update on Nelson's injury following the game or in the coming days.

Buccaneers' Anthony Nelson: Good to go
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nelson (knee) was a full participant during Wednesday's practice.

Early reports suggested that Nelson may miss the season opener with a sprained MCL, but as evidenced by this news, appears ready to go for Week 1. The team may elect to slowly work in the rookie Sunday, especially considering he missed plenty of camp dealing with the injury, but his role remains unclear for now.

Buccaneers' Anthony Nelson: May miss Week 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nelson (knee) may not be ready for the season opener against the 49ers, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

Nelson suffered a sprained MCL early in training camp and hasn't played in any of the three preseason games. Even once healthy, the rookie fourth-rounder will likely be playing catch-up after missing so much time during his first camp.

Buccaneers' Anthony Nelson: Nursing knee injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nelson has been held out of practice with a knee injury, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports

Nelson was unable to play in Friday's preseason opener, but it's unclear how long he's been battling the injury. The 22-year-old was a fourth-round pick in April's draft and figures to begin the season as a depth edge rusher for the Buccaneers, if healthy.

Buccaneers' Anthony Nelson: Tampa snags in fourth round
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Buccaneers selected Nelson in the fourth round of the 2019 NFL Draft, 107th overall.

Nelson boasts a great deal of athleticism and production alike, as the 6-foot-7, 271-pound Iowa product posted excellent numbers across the board at the combine (4.82-second 40, 35.5-inch vertical, 11.18 agility score) after posting 9.5 sacks and 13.5 tackles for loss as a junior last year. His weight might be a limitation in the meantime, as he could stand to add about 20 pounds to his frame to more conventionally project as a 3-4 end, but even so he's a candidate to contribute nickel snaps at end when the Buccaneers want to rotate out the likes of Jason Pierre-Paul and Noah Spence. Nelson could be a standout IDP within a couple years.
