In the same report, however, Laine relays that the Buccaneers are hopeful that the surgery Spence underwent in Colorado after being placed on season-ending injured reserve has corrected the problem. The second-year defensive end dislocated his shoulder a total of four times over a span of 12 months, with the first instance having come in Week 4 of his rookie 2016 campaign against the Broncos. Spence also underwent surgery on the shoulder last Jan. 11 to repair what was at the time a fully torn labrum suffered against the Panthers in the 2016 season finale. A first-round talent that slipped in the draft due to off-the-field concerns, Spence has flashed his pass-rushing acumen over his first 22 career games despite often playing hurt and in a part-time role, collecting 6.5 sacks. He'll look to be ready for the start of OTAs, with further updates on his condition expected as that time draws near.
Surgery is expected to sideline Adjei-Barimah four about four months. While it's possible his season isn't over yet, the injured reserve list remains a real possibility.
David equaled the season high in stops he'd posted back in Week 7 against the Bills. The 27-year-old defensive maven has posted no fewer than six stops in six consecutive contests, and he needs just 15 tackles over the last three games to reach the century mark in that category for a fifth time in his six-year career.
Evans intercepted a Brett Hundley pass intended for Jordy Nelson on Sunday in Green Bay. It was the team's only takeaway of the day. Evans now has three interceptions on the year, which ties him for the lead among rookies.
Trattou backs up Everson Griffin at right defensive end and the Vikings will be without needed depth. Depth is more of an issue than usual with the game being played at high altitude.
After five straight games with double-digit stops, Alexander posted a season-high tackle tally. The third-year linebacker also equaled a season best by making two of those tackles behind the line of scrimmage. Despite having missed nearly five full games due to a hamstring injury earlier in the campaign, Alexander could still make his way to a second straight 100-tackle season if he's able to compile 35 over the Buccaneers' final three contests.
Winston fired a pair of fourth-quarter touchdowns to bring the Buccaneers back from a 21-7 fourth-quarter deficit, but Tampa ultimately fell short for the eighth time in the last 10 games. The third-year signal caller had helped put his team in the hole earlier in the game by throwing interceptions in the second and third quarters and fumbling away on a sack, blemishing what was an otherwise strong fantasy day. He spread the ball around for a second consecutive week, as well, connecting with a whopping 11 different pass catchers on the afternoon. Factoring in Sunday's production, Winston has thrown for 555 yards and generated a 4:2 TD:INT ratio in his first two games back from a shoulder injury -- numbers he'll look to improve in a Week 15 Monday night showdown against the Falcons.
A November pickup by the Bucs last season, Siliga brought some additional size to the team's defensive line last season. However, he saw limited action over six games with the club, notching just five tackles (three solo) and one sack. He will likely return to a similar role with Tampa Bay in 2017.
Bullough was cut by the team prior to the regular season kicking off. The rookie will now get an opportunity to make an impression with the club as a depth linebacker, as well as a special teams contributor.
Evans has surprisingly seen his production take a dive with the return of Jameis Winston from a shoulder injury, as he's now brought in just four of 11 targets for 58 yards in the last two contests. Winston has spread the ball around an inordinate amount in both games, which has certainly played a major role in Evans having much fewer opportunities than usual. However, he also hasn't gotten into the end zone since way back in Week 7, leaving him with the second-lowest touchdown total of his career. Evans certainly has the talent and rapport with Winston to snap out of his current funk, a feat he'll look to accomplish in a Week 15 divisional clash against the Falcons.
Just promoted from the practice squad last Tuesday, Cross saw action on 14 snaps from scrimmage, along with another 20 on special teams. The reserve tight end projects to be used sparingly behind the likes of Cameron Brate and O.J. Howard, with his primary value likely to be derived from his run-blocking and special teams work.
The Buccaneers must see a lot of promise in the rookie defensive end, as the team released veteran Darryl Tapp in order to make room for O'Connor on the roster. O'Connor spent the preseason with the Lions after being selected in the seventh round of April's draft. He could see some defensive snaps Sunday if starter Robert Ayers -- who continues to deal with a concussion -- is sidelined for the contest.
The second-year tackle is slated to serve as Demar Dotson's backup at right tackle this season.
McDonald will now miss his second consecutive game after suffering a back injury in Week 12 against the Falcons. He's logged just 18 tackles in 11 games this season, so his absence won't have much of an impact on the Buccaneers' defensive front as long as Gerald McCoy and Chris Baker remain healthy.
Olatoye's third stint on the Bucs' active roster this season has come to an end. The 26-year-old is a likely candidate to revert back to the team's practice squad, assuming he clears waivers.
Wilson spent the preseason with the Buccaneers before being signed to the team's practice squad ahead of Week 1. The team may opt to give Wilson some offensive reps Sunday in Green Bay, but he will most likely spend the majority of his time on special teams given that he is the sixth wideout on the depth chart.
Wester briefly engaged in a block before drifting into the left side of the end zone for an easy reception from Jameis Winston in the fourth quarter to bring the Buccaneers within a Patrick Murray extra point of a 21-21 tie. The second-year tackle remains a valued part of the Tampa's offensive line rotation.
Martin got the start and had 12 touches in the first half, taking 10 carries for 26 yards and a touchdown and adding 24 yards on two catches. He didn't get another touch after losing a fumble late in the second quarter, allowing Peyton Barber to finish with 12 carries for 58 yards and one catch for five yards. It was a bit surprising to see Barber get just three carries before halftime, given that he had 143 yards on 27 touches the previous week when Martin was out with a concussion in a 26-20 loss to the Packers. Averaging 3.1 yards per carry and 4.7 yards on only 18 targets, Martin already seemed to be losing his grip on the lead role before he lost the fumble in Sunday's game. It's fair to wonder if Barber might take the starting gig for Week 15 against the Falcons on Monday Night Football.
Jackson paced the Buccaneers in targets on a day when Jameis Winston connected with 11 different pass catchers. While Jackson was effective on his one rush as well, he was under 50 receiving yards for the third time in the last four games. The 31-year-old has struggled to make the type of impact that was envisioned upon his free-agent signing last March, as his current tally of 657 receiving yards is the second fewest of his 10 seasons, while his 13.4 YPC is a career-low figure. Jackson will look to bolster his production against the Falcons in Week 15.
Hargreaves was unable to participate in practice throughout the week and is now slated to miss his fourth consecutive game due to a hamstring injury. Ryan Smith and Brent Grimes are in line to start at cornerback in Week 14, while Hargreaves' next opportunity to return will come in Week 15 against the Falcons on Monday night.
The veteran defensive end returned from his two-game absence and posted at least two tackles for the sixth straight game. Ayers is currently posting his lowest sack total (2.0) since his 2012 campaign in Denver, but his pair of stops against the Lions allowed him to eclipse the 29 tackles he'd amassed in his debut campaign with the Buccaneers in 2016.
The 30-year-old tackle has uncharacteristically failed to record a sack this season after totaling 9.5 over his last pair of Redskins campaigns. He's continued to be solid against the run, but Baker is also on pace for his lowest tackle total since his second pro campaign in 2013. Given his overall downturn in production, he's largely devoid of any fantasy value at the moment.
The rookie linebacker notched his first career quarterback takedown when he brought Josh McCown down for a key eight-yard loss at the Buccaneers' 20-yard line late in the first half. The sack left the Jets in a 3rd-and-long situation that led to them having to settle for a Chandler Catanzaro 47-yard field goal. That impact play aside, Beckwith has seen a steep drop in production over the last three games, as he's managed just five tackles over that span. As a result, his IDP stock remains low for the time being.
The rookie tight end turned in his third outing with more than 50 yards in the last four games and also hit pay dirt for the second time over that span. However, Howard also lost the ball in the first quarter on a play that was originally ruled an incomplete pass, but it was correctly determined to be a catch and fumble upon replay review. The miscue aside, Howard has seemingly begun to develop some consistency, as he's posted 11 receptions for 175 yards and a pair of scores in his past four contests. He'll look to continue his strong stretch of play against the Falcons in Week 15.
The reserve linebacker got an unexpected moment in the spotlight when he recovered a Jakeem Grant fumble in the end zone at the conclusion of a failed last-gasp lateral drill by the Dolphins. Glanton acquitted himself well while drawing a trio of starts at strong-side linebacker in Weeks three through five, but he's largely been relegated to special teams duty since Kwon Alexander's return from a hamstring injury sent Kendell Beckwith back to his natural strong-side spot. As a result, Glanton retains no true IDP value at present.
Smith seemed to be trending in the right direction in his recovery from the concussion after logging a full practice Wednesday, and he apparently passed tests administered by an independent neurologist to get the green light for the Week 13 matchup. He'll likely rotate in at left guard with Kevin Pamphile during the contest.
Robinson isn't quite ready to return after also missing last week's loss to the Packers due to a hamstring injury. Primarily used on special teams, Robinson's absence doesn't have much of an impact on the Buccaneers' defense at this point.
The 26-year-old defensive end was back in action after missing the prior two games following his Week 9 neck injury. Gholston recorded his first stop behind the line of scrimmage since Week 3, but he remains without a sack after logging three apiece in each of the past two seasons. Due to his relatively marginal production, he's only a fantasy consideration in the deepest of IDP formats.
Dotson was able to fight through the knee injury and stay in the game Sunday, but follow-up scans prompted the Buccaneers to shut the lineman down for the season. The 32-year-old Dotson had been enjoying a solid campaign despite playing through a hamstring injury prior to hurting his knee. Caleb Benenoch and Kevin Pamphile are the top candidates to fill in at right tackle over the Buccaneers' final five games.
The possession receiver played a relatively nominal role once again, with Sunday marking his third consecutive game with at least three receptions. Humphries had a trio of six-catch games within the first five games of the season, but he's settled into a more modest but consistent role since that point. Factoring in his Week 14 production, he's just 10 receptions away from eclipsing the career-best 55 he logged in 2016, a mark he'll look to continue building toward against the Falcons in Week 15.
The rookie unexpectedly paced the Buccaneers in catches and receiving yards, mirroring the career-best numbers in both categories that he'd generated in a Week 11 start against the Dolphins. Godwin has averaged between 12.0 and 19.0 yards per reception in his last five games after posting single-digit YPCs in six consecutive contests in Weeks 4 through 9. With the team playing out the string at 4-9 and starting receivers Mike Evans and DeSean Jackson both struggling, the Penn State product could conceivably see an expanded opportunity for the final three contests of the season.
Although he officially began the game as Doug Martin's backup, Barber ended up outpacing the latter in rushing touches and was much more successful in finding running room. The second-year back has consistently been able to garner positive gains in the rush game in contrast to Martin, who despite scoring a touchdown averaged fewer than 3.0 yards per rush for the fourth time in the last five games Sunday and lost a fumble. Given Barber's continued success and the Buccaneers' spiraling season, it wouldn't be at all surprising to see head coach Dirk Koetter officially promote him to the lead-back role for a Week 15 battle against the Falcons.
Griffin's return from IR comes at a convenient time with head coach Dirk Koetter having announced Monday that Jameis Winston (shoulder) would be shut down for at least two weeks. Veteran Ryan Fitzpatrick will step in as the interim starter, but Griffin will be active for Sunday's game against the Jets as the backup while Winston is unavailable. Griffin was moved to IR on Sept. 4 after suffering the shoulder injury in the second game of the preseason, but he's been practicing for nearly three weeks and is no longer hurting.
Smith has played solid all season, compiling 45 tackles (37 solo) and three forced fumbles through 12 games, and he had six tackles before leaving Sunday's game in the third frame. Expect Robert McClain and Javien Elliott to pick up Smith's snaps in his absence.
Bond hasn't played since injuring his knee in mid-August but he was absent from the team's injury report this past week. He'll make his season debut as a backup linebacker behind starters Lavonte David, Kendell Beckwith and Adarius Glanton.
Murray didn't have an opportunity for any field-goal attempts for the first time since his Buccaneers 2017 debut in Week 6. However, he remained perfect on extra points for the season by drilling all three attempts. Murray continues to be one of the most consistent kicker options in fantasy circles, having two field goals all season and posting an impressive 2-for-3 tally from 50 yards and beyond. He'll look to boost his production in a Week 15 home tilt against the Falcons.
Sims mirrored his Week 13 rushing line while also posting at least two catches for the sixth straight game. The four-year pro has yet to see more than three carries in any game this season, so his primary fantasy value is essentially limited to deep PPR formats. He'll look to exploit a Falcons defense that's been vulnerable to pass-catching backs in a Week 15 divisional battle.
Clarke now has nine tackles and three sacks in 11 games this season. His 34 defensive reps were a new season-high. Look for the veteran defensive end to continue to split reps with William Gholston on Sunday when the Buccaneers face the Lions.
Ward was promoted from the practice squad Thursday, but he'll ultimately stay on the sidelines Sunday. His last action came in Week 9 against Atlanta, although he saw just four total snaps.
The versatile veteran didn't see any snaps on offense for the first time since Week 9, as Doug Martin's return from a concussion made Rodgers the odd man out in the backfield. The seven-year veteran has been minimally involved as a running back since the first three games of the season, when he served as the lead back while Martin finished serving his suspension. As such, his fantasy value remains limited to formats that factor in return yards.
The Buccaneers will sport a retooled offensive line Sunday against the Packers, as Marpet, the team's starting center, will be joined on IR by right tackle Demar Dotson after both players suffered season-ending injuries in the Week 12 loss to the Falcons. Marpet, who had consistently graded out as the Bucs' top offensive lineman this season after making the transition from guard, will likely be replaced in the lineup by Joe Hawley, the team's primary center the past two years.
Fitzpatrick proved adequate while starting in place of the injured Winston the last three games, leading the Buccaneers to a 2-1 record while completing 57.4 percent of his passes to the tune of 745 yards, three touchdowns and only one turnover. With Winston turning in a full practice and taking every rep with the first team Wednesday, there's apparently no lingering concern about the health of his throwing shoulder, so the 2015 No. 1 overall pick is expected to start each of the Bucs' final five contests of the season.
Johnson has been on the Rams' practice squad since the end of training camp, but did spend some time on the team's 53-man roster in 2016. The 25-year-old will likely serve as a depth option in the secondary and as a special teams contributor.
The 24-year-old Laval University (Canada) product was active for the fourth time this season, but his catch was the first of his career. Like fellow reserve tight end Alan Cross, Auclair saw action on on 14 snaps from scrimmage overall. He also logged an additional 14 on special teams, an area which still projects to be his primary source of action on the remaining weeks in which he's afforded active status.
The veteran center has been struggling with an illness since last week and missed the Week 13 overtime loss to the Packers as a result. Hawley is slated to handle starting center dutie for the balance of the campaign when healthy now that Ali Marpet (knee) is on injured reserve. Further information on his status should be available on the final injury report of the week Friday afternoon.
Tampa Bay recently promoted Freddie Martino to the active roster to serve as the No. 5 wideout, so Lampman will fill the opening at wideout on the practice squad. It will probably take an injury or two before Lampman earns a promotion of his own, and even in that scenario, it's unlikely he would see many offensive snaps.
Despite being victimized by rookie Chris Godwin for a spectacular one-handed touchdown grab in one-on-one drills, Elliott's day was largely a success. He actually had solid coverage on the acrobatic catch, and he also picked off Jameis Winston during team drills during the session. Elliott added a strip of receiver Shaq Hill in one-on-ones, ripping the ball loose just after the pass had arrived. The FSU product recorded 10 tackles (eight solo) and one pass defensed in six games last season and logged 38 total snaps (31 on defense, seven on special teams) in last Thursday's win over the Jaguars.
The reserve defensive end had been trending in the right direction towards the end of the practice week, and this report officially confirms his availability. Russell will slot back in as a rotational player Sunday, as starting defensive end Robert Ayers (concussion) is active and making his return from a two-game absence.
Lambert dislocated his wrist in Saturday's exhibition. He's unlikely to come off IR until season's end, barring an injury settlement.
McClain opened Week 10 prep as a full participant before seeing his status downgrade to non-participant by Friday, so he is clearly trending in the wrong direction. Barring a remarkable turnaround, it looks like Vernon Hargreaves and Ryan Smith should see increased roles in the secondary Sunday.
Making his fifth appearance of the season, Martino recorded his first reception of 2017 in the second quarter. The speedy 26-year-old is firmly ensconced in the latter portion of the Buccaneers' receiver depth chart and isn't guaranteed active status each week, making him a fantasy afterthought.
The veteran defensive back was part of a secondary that allowed Matthew Stafford to rack up 381 passing yards, but he was able to grab his third interception of the season in the second quarter on a deep throw intended for Kenny Golladay. Grimes has logged all three picks in the last seven games, and one more interception over the final three games would give him at least four for five consecutive seasons.
Fleming was with the team in training camp and recorded two tackles in the second preseason contest against the Jaguars. The rookie posted 78 tackles (63 solo), one interception, 15 passes defensed, two forced fumbles and one fumble recovery over 27 college games. Fellow corner David Rivers was released from the practice squad to make room for Fleming.
Tu'iklolovatu damaged the MCL and meniscus in his right knee. Fortunately, he should be able to return in time for the 2018 campaign.
McCoy probably has a good idea of what a torn biceps feels like, given that he suffered the same injury in both 2010 and 2011, his first two seasons in the league. The already lowly Tampa Bay defense can't afford to lose its only real pass-rushing threat, but it appears that's what's going to happen. Expect McCoy to head in for an MRI on Monday, with the Buccaneers revealing the extent of his injury soon thereafter.
The injury is only a minor concern for Folk and likely wouldn't have affected his availability for the Buccaneers' Week 6 matchup with the Cardinals, but the move to IR will delay his inevitable release after the team signed Patrick Murray in a corresponding move to serve as its new placekicker. Folk lost the gig after missing three field goals in Tampa Bay's Week 5 loss to the New England, which came after he misfired on a pair of field goals and extra points across the team's first three contests of the season. Once Folk is deemed healthy, he'll be released off injured reserve and become eligible to sign elsewhere, but the accuracy issues he's displayed to date may limit the interest of other teams.
Sweezy finished the week as a full practice participant to avoid the questionable designation. The 28-year-old played against the Jets in Week 10 after a similar practice outlook and is ready to go for this week's game in Miami.
Conte was highly active on an afternoon when the Panthers logged 31 total rushes. In addition generating a season-high tackle total, the veteran safety also snagged his first interception of the campaign when he picked off a Cam Newton pass intended for Ed Dickson at the Buccaneers' 48-yard line on the opening possession of the second half. Conte is on pace for what would be a career-best 91 tackles, but he's also part of a secondary that's allowing an NFC-high 274.7 passing yards per game.
A week after re-emerging as an offensive factor with a pair of touchdown grabs, Brate was back to playing a minimal role. Meanwhile, rookie tight end O.J. Howard posted his third game in the last four with at least three receptions and 50 yards while also getting into the end zone. The recent trend in the target share and production of both players could be an indication of a changing of the guard to an extent, but given Brate's overall body of work, he's likely to still generate his fair share of productive performances. He'll look to bolster his numbers versus the Falcons in Week 15.
Tandy turned in limited practices all week, but his progress wasn't sufficient to allow him to suit up Sunday. He'll thus miss his second consecutive contest, meaning either T.J. Ward (hip) -- who's questionable in his own right -- or 2017 second-round pick Justin Evans will man the free safety spot opposite Chris Conte.
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.
