The Bucs announced on Wednesday that they have activated inside linebacker Kevin Minter from the league’s reserve/COVID-19 list, allowing the veteran to return to practice ahead of the Bucs’ NFC Championship Game against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday.

In Minter’s absence, Tampa Bay activated recently-signed linebackers Deone Bucannon and Jack Cichy – who suffered a broken arm on punt protection this past Sunday – for their Divisional Round match-up against the Saints. Minter started in Week 17 and in the Bucs’ Wild-Card Round match-up against the Washington Football team, while second-year linebacker Devin White spent time on the reserve/COVID-19 list himself, and will now return as much-needed depth following Cichy’s injury.

Bucs almost have the whole band back together.

I suspect we’ve seen the last of Cichy. While no doubt an effective contributor, he is the most fragile football player in memory, going back to his college days.

Jack and OJ Howard run a close first and second.

Yes. Jermaine Phillips can also be added. Guy broke his forearm every season.

That’s awesome, we need him on Special Teams and obviously as an important backup.

Minter is a solid and smart pro! His depth is needed and appreciated! It allows White or David a blow or two should they need it!

If we can get vea back too, that’s a huge boost for the defense because he makes everyone better. Vea can wreck people and even if it’s just for a few plays, it will matter. Everyone’s talking about green bay and slobbering all over rogers. Hell on NFL live the other day they talked about everyone in the nfl but tampa and I simply smiled, shook my head, and continued my workout. I’m fine with that and I could care less what these experts say. Green Bay and everyone is saying how they are a different team now than when… Read more »

Agree P. O. B.! I think the Bucs r the most talented team in the final four, man to a man! Who do u double team? Bucs have one 6 in a row and getting better every game! If I’m Green Bay… I’m a little worried, indeed!

They should Cut Cichy. They tried and I like the kid, but the guy has glass bones or something. Glad Minter is back god forbid White has an issue. Go Bucs!

He’s toast! Too injury prone. U can’t make the club if ur always in the tub. Nobody picked him up last time we released him. Good guy. Just can’t rely on him.

I think Cichy was on the Patriot’s practice squad when we brought him back a few weeks ago.
