Buccaneers' John Franklin: Undergoes ACL surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Franklin underwent surgery Tuesday to repair the torn ACL in his left knee, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

Franklin was placed on season-ending injured reserve before the full severity of his knee issue was revealed. The 25-year-old's rehab process should leave him with ample time to return to full health for 2021.

Buccaneers' John Franklin: Undergoes surgery, heads to IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Franklin underwent surgery on his left knee, and he was placed on injured reserve Sunday, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

Franklin will be shut down for the season after he was injured Aug. 21. It's an unfortunate injury because head coach Bruce Arians liked Franklin's versatility on offense and also believed he could be an emergency quarterback. The 25-year-old will turn his attention to the 2021 campaign.

Buccaneers' John Franklin: Hits injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Franklin (leg) was placed on season-ending injured reserve Sunday, Scott Smith of the team's official site reports.

The versatile Franklin was carted off during Friday's practice, and this latest report confirms the extent of his injury. The 25-year-old's placement on IR before final roster cuts means he's ineligible to return during the 2020 campaign. Franklin had been envisioned as a possible emergency quarterback on game day this coming season, and there was also a possibility he could have had a minor offensive role on occasion.

Buccaneers' John Franklin: Heads off on cart
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Franklin (leg) was carted off the field during Friday's practice, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports.

The 25-year-old wide receiver has played in just one game since entering the league in 2018, but the Buccaneers believed he was athletic enough to make the team this year and serve as a depth receiver and even an emergency quarterback. There's no clarification about the severity or nature of Franklin's injury.

Buccaneers' John Franklin: Could have multiple roles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Franklin will enter training camp as a receiver but could also serve as the emergency quarterback on game days, Scott Smith of the team's official site reports.

The 25-year-old spent the majority of last season on the practice squad, although he did log two snaps on offense in Week 17 against the Falcons. Franklin is a versatile athlete who saw time at both quarterback and receiver in his college days at Auburn and Florida Atlantic, and both his mobility (659 rush yards at 10.6 yards per carry in two college seasons) and ability to fill multiple roles will aid his quest to garner active status in 2020.
