  • Buccaneers' Chris Wilcox: Off PUP list, not practicing

    Wilcox (hamstring) was activated off the preseason PUP list Monday, but he has not returned to practice, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

    The Buccaneers are being cautious with Wilcox's hamstring after the injury caused him to miss the first week of training camp. The 2021 seventh-round pick will have an uphill battle landing a roster spot in one of the deepest cornerback groups in the league.

  • Buccaneers' Cam Gill: Not practicing during training camp

    Gill (undisclosed) did not practice Saturday, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

    Gill is dealing with an undisclosed injury that has kept him out of nearly a week of training camp. The 23-year-old played in 12 games during his rookie season in the NFL, registering six tackles (4 solo).

  • Buccaneers' Ndamukong Suh: Returns to practice Monday

    Suh was back in practice Monday after receiving a veteran's maintenance day off Sunday, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

    The standout veteran has been his usual self when he's been on the practice field, lending credence to the notion he once again could serve as one of the better IDP assets across the league at defensive tackle. Suh has accumulated 8.5 sacks over his first two seasons in Tampa Bay, a figure he's supplemented with a solid 84 tackles, six defensed passes, two defensive touchdowns, four fumble recoveries and one forced fumble.

  • Buccaneers' Jason Pierre-Paul: Back on field Monday

    Pierre-Paul returned to practice Monday after a maintenance day off Sunday, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

    The veteran pass rusher already has enjoyed several productive camp practices where he has been busy pestering quarterbacks and knocking down passes. Pierre-Paul's 9.5 sacks over 16 games in 2020 represented his second-highest total in that category since 2014, and he appears primed for another productive IDP season across the stat sheet.

  • Buccaneers' Antonio Brown: Back after maintenance day

    Brown practiced Monday after receiving a maintenance day off Sunday, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

    Not only was the veteran wideout back on the practice field, Jenna Laine of ESPN also reports Brown hauled in a deep pass from Tom Brady and taunted undrafted free agent cornerback Javon Hagan as he sauntered into the end zone. Brown thus far has looked good during his days participating in team drills, but that constitutes fewer instances than some of his position mates due to his briefly delayed start to camp as a result of his offseason knee procedure.

  • Buccaneers' Kyle Trask: Soaking up knowledge with few reps

    Trask, whose reps in training camp have been fairly limited thus far because of the players in front of him, nevertheless is picking up a great deal from daily one-on-one sessions with coaches and from the other players in the quarterback room, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    The Florida product unsurprisingly is doing a lot of listening and not much throwing at the moment, as Tom Brady, Blaine Gabbert and Ryan Griffin all are prioritized in terms of getting practice reps. Nevertheless, Trask is making the best of the situation by getting some early work in each day with quarterbacks coach Clyde Christensen and also peppering his experienced position mates with plenty of questions during film study. Trask could well end up a healthy inactive most weeks this coming season, but given that Brady and Gabbert particularly may not see much action in the preseason, the rookie could get a solid allotment of live reps during the three exhibition contests.

  • Buccaneers' Codey McElroy: Flashing in early practices

    McElroy, who is battling for a reserve tight end role, has stood out with his sure hands during the first few days of training camp, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

    The athletic McElroy is an intriguing prospect, considering he played two seasons of minor-league baseball and some college basketball before devoting himself to football on a full-time basis. The 6-foot-6, 255-pound Oklahoma State product is already 28 years old and counts a 30-yard grab back in 2019 as his only career NFL reception, but the Buccaneers thought enough of his potential to ink him to a reserve/futures contract in February following a 2020 season on the practice squad. McElroy is competing with fellow incumbent Tanner Hudson and journeyman Jerell Adams for a roster spot, and preseason games could ultimately be the deciding factor on who wins the job battle.

  • Buccaneers' Devin White: Already standing out in camp

    White nabbed interceptions in both Friday's and Saturday's practices while also making his presence felt against the run, Carmen Vitali of the team's official site reports.

    The third-year linebacker appears primed for another standout season after serving as an integral component of last year's Super Bowl-winning defense. White's pair of early picks are a good sign considering he has only one career interception, and his takedown of Ronald Jones at the line of scrimmage during Saturday's padded practice was a tangible reminder of the 2019 first-round pick's elite run-stopping prowess.

  • Buccaneers' Jordan Whitehead: Clears COVID-19 protocols

    Whitehead was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Friday, Scott Smith of the Buccaneers' official site reports.

    Whitehead spent just one week in the COVID-19 protocols before clearing them. The starting free safety will rejoin his teammates at practice moving forward.
