Buccaneers' T.J. Ward: Clears concussion protocol
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ward cleared concussion protocol Friday, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

While Ward's full practice Thursday implied that he was clear of any concussion-like symptoms, Friday's news confirms it, and Ward should be good to go as Tampa Bay's starting free safety after being sidelined for that last two weeks.

Buccaneers' T.J. Ward: Logs full practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ward (concussion) was a full participant at Thursday's practice, Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Ward has been sidelined for the previous two contests due to a concussion, but his full workload Thursday indicates he is on track for a return in Week 15. Assuming he avoids any setbacks, the veteran looks set to resume his role at free safety.

Buccaneers' T.J. Ward: Ruled out for Week 14
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ward (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Lions, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports.

Ward was unable to practice throughout the week as he's remained in the league's concussion protocol since suffering the head injury against the Falcons in Week 12. His next chance to return will come in Week 15 against Atlanta at home, while Keith Tandy figures to start at free safety during Ward's absence.

Buccaneers' T.J. Ward: Remains in concussion protocol
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Head coach Dirk Koetter confirmed Thursday that Ward (concussion) is yet to clear the league-mandated protocol for head injuries, Jenna Laine of ESPN.com reports.

The news wasn't exactly surprising, considering the veteran safety has yet to practice since exiting the Week 12 loss to the Falcons in the second half with his injury. Ward has been a solid contributor in the defensive backfield for the Buccaneers in a part-time role, collecting 29 tackles (22 solo), defending a pair of passes and recovering a fumble over nine games. Given his inability to perform any on-field work thus far this week, Ward appears highly likely to be ruled out for the Week 14 tilt against the Lions, with final confirmation of his status expected in Friday's injury report.

Buccaneers' T.J. Ward: Out in Week 13
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ward (concussion) is listed as out for Sunday's Week 13 tilt against the Packers.

The veteran exited last Sunday's loss to the Falcons with his concussion, and he's yet to clear the league-mandated protocol for head injuries. His absence could afford Keith Tandy a start at free safety, although the Buccaneers also have the option of shifting rookie Justin Evans over from strong safety.
