  • Buccaneers' Ryan Jensen: Getting more tests Monday

    Jensen will have his injured left knee reevaluated Monday, and those results should determine whether the injury will keep him out for the entire season, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

    Jensen's facing a multi-month absence either way, but Monday's tests should help reveal more specifics about the significance of his injury. If Jensen's results land on the more pessimistic end, he will likely miss the entire 2022 campaign and be placed on injured reserve.

  • Buccaneers' Jose Borregales: Impressing early in camp

    Borregales, who's attempting to unseat Ryan Succop for the starting placekicker job this summer, has gone 7-for-8 on field-goal attempts in each of his first two training camp practices, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

    Head coach Todd Bowles is alternating camp practices between his two kickers, and Borregales' first two sessions came Thursday and Saturday. Auman reports Borregales' longest kicks Thursday were about five yards farther than Succop's farthest attempts, and Saturday, he made his first six attempts before hitting the right upright from 51 yards out for his only miss. Bowles essentially declared the battle a draw thus far, noting "both of them are healthy, both of them are kicking good right now."

  • Buccaneers' Ryan Succop: Healthy and competing in camp

    Succop, who dealt with an undisclosed offseason injury, has been participating fully in practice since the start of training camp and is attempting to hold off Jose Borregales for the starting placekicker job, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

    Succop's 83.3 percent accuracy on field goals last season left something to be desired, and his 70.0 percent success rate from 40-49 yards was his lowest in that range since 2014. Succop is therefore going to have to fight for his roster spot this summer, and although the 35-year-old did go a perfect 6-for-6 in Wednesday's practice, Borregales has gone a combined 14-for-16 himself over his first two kicking sessions.

  • Buccaneers' Don Gardner: Off PUP list

    Gardner (undisclosed) was activated from the active/PUP list Sunday, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

    Gardner can now join his teammates on the practice field during training camp. The South Dakota State alum will be working to earn a spot in the Buccaneers secondary.

  • Buccaneers' Cade Otton: Enjoys first few camp practices

    Otton, who was medically cleared from the ankle injury that cut short his final college season just before training camp, has been able to practice each day thus far after missing all offseason on-field work, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

    Otton studied the Buccaneers offense in the classroom and through sideline observation throughout the offseason, but getting live reps has naturally been a welcome new phase in his acclimation. The rookie fourth-round pick is slated to rotate in with veterans Cameron Brate and Kyle Rudolph and also put in plenty of time on special teams this season, but his athleticism could certainly help him carve out meaningful snaps as the season unfolds if he proves a quick study in the offense and pass-protection schemes.

  • Buccaneers' Tyler Johnson: Impressing early in camp

    Johnson, who's been a full participant in training camp after finishing last season's postseason run with a rib injury, has made a strong impression in his bid for the No. 5 receiver job, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports. "Tyler came in in great shape," head coach Todd Bowles said. "I think he's learned the offense a little more, so he's playing a lot freer than he was the last two years. This is a great camp for him. He'll get a lot of playing time, and we'll get to see what he's really doing."

    Auman notes Johnson has particularly impressed with catches over the middle in 7-on-7 and full-squad drills. The third-year pro has acquitted himself relatively well in limited opportunity over his first two seasons, taking advantage of injuries in the Buccaneers' receiving corps at times on his way to generating a 48-529-2 line on 72 targets across 31 games. With Tampa Bay's top four wideouts set, Johnson is battling several candidates, including capable holdovers Breshad Perriman and Scotty Miller, for a spot on the back end of the positional depth chart this summer.

  • Buccaneers' Russell Gage: Stellar start to camp

    Gage enjoyed another productive day at training camp Saturday, recording at least five receptions, including two touchdowns, Brianna Dix of the team's official site reports.

    Dix notes that Gage's success hasn't just been limited to Saturday, as he's been a go-to target for Tom Brady to varying degree in each session thus far. Gage has flashed in multiple ways, including making impressive catches on crossing patterns, near the sideline and in the end zone. The arrival of Julio Jones may keep Gage as the No. 3 wideout to start the season even while Chris Godwin (knee) is finishing his recovery from ACL surgery, but the veteran's quick chemistry with Brady still bodes very well for his chances of hitting the ground running in the Buccaneers' air attack.

  • Buccaneers' Sadarius Hutcherson: Activated from PUP list

    The Buccaneers activated Hutcherson (knee) from the active/PUP list Friday, Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Hutcherson missed his entire rookie campaign after suffering an MCL injury last August, but it appears that he'll be healthy to start the 2022 season. However, the undrafted tackle out of South Carolina will likely have an uphill battle to make the initial 53-man roster.

  • Buccaneers' Ryan Jensen: Expects to miss extended time

    Coach Todd Bowles said Friday that Jensen (knee) has a significant knee injury and will miss several months, Greg Auman of The Athletic reports.

    Pending MRI results, the precise nature of Jensen's injury is still unknown. Coming off a Pro Bowl selection last season, any game action he misses constitutes a massive loss for a Bucs offensive line tasked with protecting a soon-to-be 45-year-old quarterback in Tom Brady. Until Jensen can return, one of either Robert Hainsey or Nick Leverett figures to be delivering the ball to Brady this season.

  • Buccaneers' Joe Tryon-Shoyinka: Set for big Year 2 leap

    Tryon-Shoyinka is expected to hold down a starting job as a prototypical 3-4 defensive end/outside linebacker this season after filling a variety of roles as a rookie in 2021, Brianna Dix of the team's official site reports.

    The 2021 first-round pick logged 536 snaps from scrimmage as a rookie while serving as an edge rusher, playing a three-technique spot and also dropping into coverage on occasion. Dix notes Tryon-Shoyinka will now be entrusted with a starting role following the team's decision to not re-sign Jason Pierre-Paul, and the athletic second-year pro has already been validating that trust early in camp by flashing the impressive pass-rushing skills that helped him record four sacks as a rookie.

  • Buccaneers' Robert Hainsey: Strong candidate to replace Jensen

    Hainsey was described by GM Jason Licht as a primary candidate to replace Ryan Jensen at center if the latter's injury leads to an extended absence, Brianna Dix of the Buccaneers' official site reports.

    The second-year lineman stepped in for Jensen in Thursday's session when the starting center went down with what appeared to be a serious knee injury that required him to be carted off the field. Hainsey will face competition from Nick Leverett, but the 2021 third-round pick, who did some cross training at center last summer after focusing on right tackle during his college career at Notre Dame, seemingly has the size to handle the position at 6-foot-4 and 306 pounds.

  • Buccaneers' Julio Jones: Stands out in first practice

    Jones practiced with the Buccaneers for the first time Thursday and recorded a touchdown pass in goal-line work, Brianna Dix of the team's official site reports.

    The multi-time Pro Bowler wasted no time making his presence felt in a talented offense, connecting with Tom Brady twice during goal-line work, including a leaping grab in the back of the end zone. Jones also had no trouble showing off his field-stretching capability and ability to pick up yards after the catch on intermediate routes during the non-padded practice, making it an impressive all-around debut.

  • Buccaneers' Bug Howard: Joins Tampa Bay

    Howard signed with the Buccaneers on Thursday, Aaron Wilson of reports.

    After a successful campaign in the USFL with Philadelphia, Howard will help fill Tampa Bay's hole at tight end. With the Buccaneer's departure of O.J. Howard and the retirement of Rob Gronkowski, Cameron Brate and recent signee Kyle Rudolph will likely share starter's reps. Consequently, expect Howard to try and carve out a depth role behind the veteran duo.

  • Buccaneers' Ryan Jensen: Possibly suffers significant injury

    It's believed that Jensen may have suffered a "serious knee injury" after being carted off the field the Buccaneers' practice field Thursday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

    Jensen is still undergoing tests on his knee and the team should have a definitive idea of the severity of this injury in the coming days, according to Rapaport. The 31-year-old center has not missed a single game since joining Tampa Bay ahead of the 2018 campaign, and he is coming off the first Pro Bowl nod of his eight-year career in 2021. Suffice it to say, the loss of Jensen would be a major loss for the Buccaneers' offensive line -- a unit that has done an above-average job at protecting future Hall-of-Famer Tom Brady the past two seasons.
