Suh (undisclosed) didn't participate in Tuesday's practice, Jenna Laine of ESPN reports.
The veteran defensive tackle practiced the first two days of camp after dealing with a minor wrist issue in June minicamp, but he was just an observer Tuesday. Laine notes Suh is always subject to the occasional maintenance day both in camps and during the season, and Wednesday should provide further clarity on whether that was indeed the case in this instance.
Suh sat out Tuesday's practice with a minor wrist injury, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports.
The 34-year-old indicated it's not a serious issue and shouldn't affect his availability for training camp. Suh re-signed with Tampa Bay on a one-year deal in March after posting 43 tackles (27 solo), six sacks and a forced fumble in 16 games last season.
Suh agreed Wednesday with the Buccaneers on a one-year contract, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
One-year deals have become a trend for Suh in recent years, though it hardly makes him a trendsetter this offseason. The 34-year-old has started all 16 games in nine consecutive seasons, including both the past two years in Tampa Bay. He was one of the better interior pass rushers in the league last season, recording 29 pressures, 19 quarterback hits and six sacks across 786 defensive snaps.
Suh totaled two tackles (one solo), including 1.5 sacks, during the Buccaneers' 31-9 win over the Chiefs in Super Bowl LV on Sunday.
The veteran defensive tackle played a key role in applying the suffocating pressure that prevented Patrick Mahomes from ever getting into a comfort zone during the contest, putting up his most prolific sack tally since Week 2. Suh finished the 2020 regular season with 43 tackles (27 solo), six sacks, two passes defended and a forced fumble while playing all 16 games for the ninth consecutive year. The 34-year-old's sack total was his highest since the 2015 season, and given that Suh posted multiple tackles in each of the last six contests Tampa Bay played, it appears he still has more than enough in the tank to continue thriving. Suh opted to play 2020 on his second consecutive one-year contract, so it remains to be seen if he'll follow suit in Tampa Bay or head elsewhere in 2021.
Suh compiled three tackles (all solo), including one sack, and was credited with an additional quarterback hit in the Buccaneers' 44-27 win over the Falcons on Sunday.
The veteran tackle finished the season with his highest sack total since 2015, getting his sixth and final quarterback takedown of the campaign on Matt Ryan. Suh added 43 tackles (27 solo), two defensed passes and a forced fumble for another solid IDP season. Suh was also a key component of the Buccaneers' top-ranked run defense, and he'll look to continue making an impact during the upcoming postseason before heading into unrestricted free agency this offseason after playing 2020 on a one-year, $3 million deal.
Suh tallied six tackles (three solo), including one sack, and was credited with two additional quarterback hits in the Buccaneers' 26-14 win over the Vikings on Sunday.
The veteran tackle was a thorn in the side of the Vikings throughout the afternoon, tying Carlton Davis for third on the team in stops while ringing up one of six takedowns of Kirk Cousins. Suh's tackle total was also a season high, and he's now equaled his best sack tally since the 2016 campaign in Miami. Suh continues to offer better-than-average IDP production and should continue to be a viable option in deep leagues during the fantasy postseason.
Suh totaled five tackles (four solo), including one for loss, and also recorded a quarterback hit in the Buccaneers' 27-24 loss to the Chiefs on Sunday.
The big defensive tackle tied his season high with Sunday's tackle tally. Suh has multiple stops in four of the last five games overall, and his four sacks leave him just two short of his best total over the last five seasons. Suh's interior-line spot does lend some uncertainty to his week-to-week production, but he's arguably more of a threat to get to the quarterback than many other players at his position.
Suh recorded a sack for his one tackle in the Buccaneers' 38-10 win over the Packers on Sunday.
The big defensive tackle took down old nemesis Aaron Rodgers for his third sack of the season, renewing acquaintances with his old NFC North rival from Suh's days with the Lions. Suh's three QB takedowns through six games currently have him on pace to tie the third-best tally (eight) of his career in that category, one season after he posted a career-low 2.5 but offset it with a career-high two touchdowns and four fumble recoveries. Suh's single-game tackle numbers rarely go above five these days, but he always offers the possibility of wreaking havoc in the pocket with his athleticism and potentially producing a turnover.
Suh totaled five tackles (four solo), including two sacks, in the Buccaneers' 31-17 win over the Panthers on Sunday.
The veteran lineman was in vintage form in the win versus the Panthers, nearly matching his sack total of 2.5 from last season in one afternoon. Suh's performance was a significant upgrade from a season-opening tally of just one tackle versus the Saints, and he'll look to keep pushing in the right direction against a Broncos team that might afford him plenty of run-stopping opportunities Week 3.
Suh's absence from practice Friday was confirmed to simply be a veteran's day off, and the defensive tackle is fully expected to start in Sunday's Week 1 tilt against the Saints, Carmen Vitali of the team's official site reports.
Suh's presence on the injury report may look alarming on the surface, but Vitali's explanation confirms the big tackle was simply getting some rest ahead of the Buccaneers' highly anticipated season opener. The 33-year-old re-signed with the club on a one-year, $8 million deal this offseason after posting 41 tackles (22 solo), 2.5 sacks, four pass breakups, four fumble recoveries and two defensive touchdowns across 16 games in 2019.
Suh agreed Wednesday with the Buccaneers on a one-year, $8 million contract, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Suh turned in a disappointing first season in Tampa in 2019, notching a career-low 2.5 sacks to go with just 41 tackles, his fewest in seven years. On the positive end, he recovered four fumbles and scored two defensive touchdowns, though those numbers tend not to be reliable year over year. The veteran still played well enough to garner another contract from Tampa Bay, so expect him to again fill a starting role alongside nose tackle Vita Vea.
Suh and the Buccaneers have mutual interest in his return, but the veteran defensive lineman has received interest from other teams in free agency, Eduardo A. Encina of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Suh's first season in Tampa was a mixed bag, with the 33-year-old recording a career-low 2.5 sacks and also posting his lowest tackle total (41) since the 2012 campaign. Suh did notch two defensive touchdowns -- the only scores of his career other than one he posted in his rookie 2010 campaign in Detroit -- and he also set a new high-water mark with four fumble recoveries. The veteran has been linked to both the 49ers and Cowboys, but the Bucs apparently remain firmly in the running considering Suh's starting defensive tackle spot next to Vita Vea remains open.
Suh finished the 2019 season with 41 tackles (22 solo), 2.5 sacks, four defensed passes, four fumble recoveries, including two that he returned for touchdowns, across 16 games.
The final line features an impressive array of impact plays, but it's worth noting Suh's 2019 season was largely a tale of two halves. The veteran had just a half-sack and one fumble recovery heading into a Week 10 battle against the Cardinals, but Suh then accumulated two sacks, four pass breakups, and his three other fumble recoveries, including the two he returned for scores, over the final eight contests of the campaign. The sack total was a career-low figure for Suh, who also posted his lowest tackle tally since the 2013 season. Part of the downturn could have been attributed to an acclimation period to coordinator Todd Bowles' 3-4 scheme, and, as a pending unrestricted free agent this March, the 33-year-old will have an opportunity to potentially find a better fit in a 4-3 attack elsewhere in 2020.
Suh recorded five tackles (three solo), including 1.5 for loss, and was credited with one quarterback hit in the Buccaneers' 23-20 loss to the Texans on Saturday.
Suh's productive performance represented yet another installment in his late-season surge, one that's seen him post multiple tackles in seven of his last eight contests. The five stops Saturday equaled a season high as well, and he'll look to put a strong cap on his first Buccaneers campaign against the Falcons in Week 17.
Suh recorded three tackles (two solo), including one sack, and was credited with two quarterback hits overall in the Buccaneers' 38-17 win over the Lions on Sunday.
Suh is still set for a cumulative downturn in his numbers this season, but he's at least picking up steam as his first campaign in Tampa winds down. Suh's sack Sunday was his first since Week 10, and it counted as his third impact play on defense over the last four contests after he also recorded a pair of fumble recoveries, including one he returned for a touchdown, in Weeks 12 and 13.
Suh recorded two tackles (one solo) and recovered a fumble in the Buccaneers' 28-11 win over the Jaguars on Sunday.
Suh continued to demonstrate a penchant for bouncing on loose footballs Sunday, with his recovery of a second-quarter Nick Foles fumble marking the veteran defensive tackle's career-high fourth of the campaign. Suh has helped make up for his notable downturn in sacks (1.5 sacks through 12 games) with more impact plays, as he's returned half of the aforementioned quartet of recovered fumbles for touchdowns.
Suh recorded four tackles (two solo), two quarterback hits and fumble recovery touchdown in the Buccaneers' 35-22 win over the Falcons on Sunday.
The veteran has upped his production on the tackle front of late, with Sunday bringing his two-game total nine combined stops over Weeks 11 and 12. Suh is still sitting on just 1.5 sacks for the season, which would easily be a career low. On the brighter side, he does now have a career-best three fumble recoveries, two of which he's managed to return for scores.
Suh recorded four solo tackles, including two for loss, in the Buccaneers' 34-17 loss to the Saints on Sunday.
Suh was also credited with a quarterback hit and has been more active overall in the last two games. The veteran tackle also had notched his first full sack of the season in Week 10 versus the Cardinals and has multiple stops in three straight overall. However, Suh remains well off pace of his usual tackle numbers, hurting his IDP value.
Suh recorded two solo tackles and one sack in Sunday's 30-27 win over the Cardinals.
Suh's first whole sack of the season brings him to 1.5 sacks and 19 tackles through nine games, an underwhelming statistical line in comparison to his past years. The Buccaneers will take on the Saints at home in Week 11.
Suh managed just one solo tackle and no other statistics in the Buccaneers' 27-23 loss to the Titans on Sunday.
Suh's underwhelming statistical season continued in Week 8, with his one-tackle tally equaling his second lowest of the season. Suh has just 14 stops overall and a half-sack through seven games, officially putting him on pace for a career-low 32 tackles. Moreover, Suh has never had less than four sacks in any season, but he's also tracking toward falling well below that number at his current pace.
