In advance of their Week 4 matchup against the New England Patriots, the Bucs have announced wide receiver Antonio Brown has been activated from the reserve/COVID list.

Brown’s 10 days on the list are up, and he will re-join his teammates on the practice field Thursday. Brown was originally placed on the list on September 22, missing the Bucs’ Week 3 contest against the Los Angeles Rams. Through two games this season, Brown has six receptions for 138 yards and a touchdown.

The Patriots defense has allowed a passer rating of 30.3 on 10+ yard throws this season, per Pro Football Focus. Getting Brown back will help a Bucs offense that is now without Scotty Miller. The speedy receiver was placed on injured reserve with turf toe on Wednesday. This weekend’s game will also be a homecoming of sorts for Brown, who played one game with the Patriots in 2019.

The team also announced that wide receiver Travis Jonsen was activated from the reserve/COVID list. Jonsen was put on the list on September 20, the same date as linebacker Kevin Minter. His return put the practice squad over its’ 16-player limit. In a corresponding move, the Bucs released guard Jonathan Hubbard from the practice squad. Hubbard originally signed with the team on August 23 during training camp. He was waived at the end of cut downs, but re-signed to the team’s practice squad after clearing waivers.

Brady will throw deep and often he wants to put on a show for NE Fans and NE management and to say “screw you Bill” with his performance expect 4-5 tds and 350-400 yds in air

The Bucs were w/o thier best pass rusher and one of Brady’s playmakers last week so the Bucs were at a definite disadvantage.against the Rams. Still w/o JPP, it the Bucs don’t sharpen thier pass rush up, Mac Jones will carve them up much like Matt Stafford did. Even without thier short passing game, Stafford had to much time in the pocket. Tryon Shoinka is going to have to realize he is going agaainst grown ass NFL men now, not second teamers who are one bad play away from being UPS drivers. I said during preseason that all of the… Read more »

Mac Jones is nowhere near the level of Stafford and there isn’t a single pass catcher in New England that is as good as anyone on the Rams. The only way Mac Jones “carves them up” is if the Bucs have a total meltdown. And at that point, there’s bigger things to worry about than Joe Tryon and the D Line.

Without a pass rush and our soft coverage, we make everybody look like Stafford.

They had to change their game plan to chip tyron pretty heavy because he was the only one getting pressure the hype is still real on the rookie after his first start he beat whitworth a few time hence the constant chip blocks and double teams he was getting he will learn to deal with it with experience some expectations on rookies from some are kinda crazy
