Jameis Winston may play through shoulder AC sprain

Jameis Winston may play through shoulder AC sprain

The quarterback’s injury isn’t too serious, it seems. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers got lucky with Jameis Winston’s shoulder injury, it seems: Ian Rapoport reports he has an AC joint sprain, which is what most already expected. The injury is painful, but it’s something quarterbacks can play through. #Bucs QB Jameis Winston suffered an AC joint sprain in his throwing shoulder, source said. It may be something he’ll be able to play through— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) October 16, 2017 Winston suffered the injury yesterday against the Arizona Cardinals, and was able to play (poorly)...

NFL fantasy football waiver wire: 6 adds and 4 drops for Week 7

NFL fantasy football waiver wire: 6 adds and 4 drops for Week 7

Adrian Peterson is back from the dead, and Samaje Perine is here to stay. It’s time for our weekly look at the top fantasy football adds and drops to be making on your waiver wire entering Week 7. ADD Arizona Cardinals RB Adrian Peterson AP is officially back. After being traded from the Saints to the Cardinals, it took all of one game for Peterson to show he’s still got it. On Sunday, Peterson rushed for 134 yards on 26 carries in the team's 38-33 victory over the Buccaneers. He looked like the old AP that was an RB1 every week, no matter the matchup. It remains to be seen if that...

Why Dirk Koetter’s repeated decisions not to kick were correct

Why Dirk Koetter’s repeated decisions not to kick were correct

Dirk Koetter passed up many opportunities to kick field goals and extra points. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers lost an ultimately close game to the Arizona Cardinals, 38-35. And that happened after Dirk Koetter had passed up a field goal at the end of the first half, and tried to go for two points after touchdowns repeatedly—he managed only one two-point conversion, and the passed-up field goal led to 0 points. Naturally, that led to a lot of criticism. Had he kicked a field goal and a few extra points, the Bucs would have had enough points to win! And yet, Koetter was, by and large, correct...

Bucs lose in Arizona as Jameis Winston injures shoulder

Bucs lose in Arizona as Jameis Winston injures shoulder

The Bucs got blown out by the Arizona Cardinals in an embarrassing and potentially costly game. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers lost a bizarre game to the Arizona Cardinals—one of the worst teams in the NFL prior to this game. The Bucs lost 38-33 to XXXXX, but they were down 31-0 at one point in the game. Somehow they almost managed to claw back and win it—but they ultimately fell short. Jameis Winston had to leave with a shoulder injury and did not return. It’s not clear how serious that injury is—Winston played one drive after injuring his shoulder before leaving, and he was shown...

This Ryan Fitzpatrick flip sums up the Buccaneers’ game

The Bucs are getting blown out by the Arizona Cardinals. Well, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers suck again. They’re down 24-0 to the Arizona Cardinals, their defense has allowed points on every drive and their offense hasn’t scored on any drive. To make matters worse, Jameis Winston had to leave the game with a shoulder injury (it’s not clear how serious it is, but it’s keeping him out of this game), so that means Ryan Fitzpatrick is in. And he does Ryan Fitzpatrick things, of course. Ryan Fitzmagicpic.twitter.com/wxluN1byC0— NFL Retweet (@NFLRT) October 15, 2017 I can kind of see...

Jameis Winston injures shoulder against Cardinals

Winston was forced to leave the game. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers may have suffered their most significant injury of the season: Jameis Winston suffered a shoulder injury against the Arizona Cardinals, and was forced to leave the game. The Bucs announced his return as ‘doubtful’, which is harsher than the usual ‘questionable’. Winston appeared to injure his shoulder at the end of the team’s second possession, when he landed awkwardly. He came back for one more series and threw a couple of balls, but apparently that shoulder injury is serious. He’s on the sidelines with his helmet...

Adrian Peterson dominated the Bucs in his first drive with the Cardinals

Four carries, 54 yards and a touchdown. Well, that’s not a good start for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and a very good one for Adrian Peterson. Four carries, 54 yards and a touchdown to cap the game’s opening drive and the Arizona Cardinals lead 7-0. Yo Adrian! pic.twitter.com/40Es3FXNHH— Arizona Cardinals (@AZCardinals) October 15, 2017 Adrian Peterson looked pretty good and made a few people (mostly Vernon Hargreaves) miss, but this was also a run-blocking win. Not in physical dominance so much as getting greater numbers in the right spot, and getting two men on Gerald McCoy on...

NFL Week Six Live: Late Afternoon Games

There’s four games left this afternoon, and we’re going to cover all of them in glory. Discuss inside. Buccaneers @ Cardinals This battle of Heisman-winning quarterbacks will probably not get anyone too excited. These are two-win teams, though on the face of it, both should be performing better than they’ve shown at this point. Jameis Winston continues to develop as a quarterback and a leader for his team, while most would agree that Carson Palmer is entering the tail end of his career. Some of the names on these teams are known around the league, including Larry Fitzgerald, Desean...

Buccaneers and Cardinals hope to rescue their seasons

Buccaneers and Cardinals hope to rescue their seasons

The Bucs and Cardinals play at 4:05 p.m. today. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers play the Arizona Cardinals today, as the Bucs hope to get back into the NFC South race and the Cardinals hope to rescue what remains of their season. The Bucs are two-point favorites, but have been pretty disappointing so far this season. A win, especially a dominant one, would go a decent way toward restoring some hope in the Bucs fandom—especially if Patrick Murray manages to actually hit all of his kicks. With T.J. Ward and Lavonte David returning today, the Bucs are only missing one significant player to...

Inactives: Lavonte David, T.J. Ward return

Inactives: Lavonte David, T.J. Ward return

The inactives for the Buccaneers and Cardinals are in. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will have Lavonte David and T.J. Ward back today against the Arizona Cardinals, after injury kept them out for the previous two games. That’s two Pro Bowlers and a big boost to a very inconsistent defense, which could be just the boost the Bucs need. Unfortunately, starting middle linebacker Kwon Alexander isn’t ready to return yet. Kendell Beckwith will take his place, as he has for the past three games. Keith Tandy is also absent with an injury, though he likely would have lost much of his playing time to...

How to watch Buccaneers vs. Cardinals

How to watch Buccaneers vs. Cardinals

Everything you need to watch the Bucs and Cardinals today. The 2-2 Tampa Bay Buccaneers play the 2-3 Arizona Cardinals tonight, as the former try to get back into the NFC South race and the latter try to prevent their season from going down the drain. The Arizona Cardinals looked like near-Super Bowl champions in recent seasons, but fell off a cliff this season. Carson Palmer appears to be done, the running game is nowhere to be found, and the defense is mediocre at best. The Cardinals are, honestly, one of the worst teams in the NFL. Meanwhile, the Bucs are just two-point favorites in...

Preview: Bucs’ red-zone efficiency is key

The Buccaneers need to start scoring again. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers play the Arizona Cardinals—so it’s time for a preview. The Bucs had a mini bye week after having played Thursday Night Football last week, when they got Doug Martin back. The Cardinals got Adrian Peterson this week. Both of these players were the top two rushers in 2015. Cardinals Defense The Cardinals are willing to concede 25 points per game. Last week the Patriots were willing to concede 32 points per game, but the Bucs offense only managed 14 points. We will see if the trend of...

Lavonte David, T.J. Ward will play against the Cardinals

That’s what Bucs head coach Dirk Koetter said today. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will get to Pro Bowl defenders back against the Arizona Cardinals tomorrow: safety T.J. Ward and linebacker Lavonte David will suit up after missing the past two games with an injury. That’s what head coach Dirk Koetter said on Sirius XM NFL today, per the Tampa Bay Times. He also said that Robert Ayers and Ali Marpet will play (both were listed as questionable), while Kwon Alexander and Keith Tandy won’t. The latter two are close to returning to play, but this week is still too soon. Having David and Ward...
