Buccaneers' T.J. Ward: Arrested Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ward (knee) was arrested Wednesday morning in Tampa on a felony count of marijuana possession and a misdemeanor count of possession of drug paraphernalia, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Ward posted bond and was released from jail shortly after his arrest, but he'll likely have to report to court at some point in the months to come and could face discipline from the NFL. A three-time Pro Bowler from 2013 through 2015, Ward has seen his effectiveness wane the past two seasons and was forced to settle for a part-time role with the Buccaneers in 2017. Ward, who sustained what is believed to be a minor knee injury in the Buccaneers' season finale Sunday against the Saints, will become a free agent this offseason.

Buccaneers' T.J. Ward: Exits with knee injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ward won't return to Sunday's game against the Saints with a knee injury, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Ward was originally tabbed questionable to return but ultimately was ruled out. Keith Tandy is likely to see increased snaps at safety with Ward sidelined.

Buccaneers' T.J. Ward: Racks up nine tackles in Week 16 start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ward posted nine tackles (five solo) in Sunday's 22-19 loss to the Panthers.

The eight-year veteran drew the start at free safety in place of Justin Evans (IR-ankle) and put together what was easily his best tackle total of the season. Ward has expressed dissatisfaction with his playing time at different points during the campaign, but Evans' injury is at least affording the 31-year-old the opportunity to show what he can do with a full allotment of snaps. Ward will look to wrap up 2017 on a strong note against the Saints in Week 17.

Buccaneers' T.J. Ward: Starting in Week 16
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ward will draw the start at free safety in place of Justin Evans (IR-ankle) Sunday against the Panthers, Scott Smith of the team's official site reports.

The veteran cleared the concussion protocol earlier in the week and will now gear up for a starter's workload against Carolina. Ward has been slotted into an unfamiliar backup role in his first Buccaneers season, which has resulted in a career-low 31 tackles. He'll have an opportunity to improve considerably on those numbers against a Panthers team that should keep him busy with its emphasis on the run and the short-to-intermediate passing attack.

Buccaneers' T.J. Ward: Absent from injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ward (concussion) doesn't appear on Wednesday's injury report, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Ward was removed from Monday's game against the Falcons to be evaluated for a concussion, but was able to pass all tests. His absence from the injury report suggests that the safety is in no danger of missing the Week 16 game against the Panthers.
