Gerald McCoy returns to practice for Buccaneers

Kwon Alexander is still absent. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers may have to play Sunday’s game agains the Minnesota Vikings without the help of linebacker Kwon Alexander, who’s missed the second practice in a row with a hamstring injury. Alexander made some vaguely positive comments about his injury after last Sunday’s game, but those haven’t been reflected on the practice field. Gerald McCoy, meanwhile, returned to practice today, albeit in limited fashion. He has some kind of ankle...

The Bucs’ three running backs have unique roles

None of them are better, they just fill different needs.

I feel like there’s a bit of confusion about the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ running backs. Charles Sims barely got the ball against the Chicago Bears (and fumbled when he did), and when Peyton Barber got the ball instead I saw a lot of sighs of relief—finally someone who can produce, obviously Sims has failed.

I don’t quite get that response, though. Mostly because, while Barber certainly had a better game than Sims, Barber also has...

2017 NFL Picks, Week Three: Easy wins and close upsets

We predict the final score for every week three game.

Oh yee of little faith….Sander can put the orangutan with the dart board and the Sunday paper back in the wild. To the applause of Jane Goodall I reversed my terrible week 1 by picking 13 of 16 matchups correctly. That certainly makes the season a bit better, upping me to 19-11 (63 %)

D-Line Dominates Without Gaudy Stats

The Buccaneers recorded just a single sack in their lopsided win over Chicago on Sunday, but look a little deeper and you'll find the near-shutout began with a great effort up front.

Gerald McCoy, Kwon Alexander miss Bucs practice

Both defensive stars are injured. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers played their first game of the 2017 NFL season on Sunday, which means we’re back to injury reports that are actually filled with players. You can’t play games and stay entirely healthy, after all. Unfortunately for the Bucs, today’s injury report contains some bad news: linebacker Kwon Alexander (hamstring) and defensive tackle Gerald McCoy (ankle) were both missing from practice. It’s not clear how serious their injuries...
