After not appearing on the injury report all week, Bucs RB LeSean McCoy has been added to the list with a “questionable” designation, although the designation is not injury related. McCoy has 10 carries for 31 yards and 15 catches for 101 yards this season, while acting as the team’s third-string back. He could be useful on Sunday if he’s able to play however, as both Leonard Fournette (abdomen) and Ronald Jones (finger) are playing through injuries.
Buccaneers Sign LB Jack Cichy and Elevate Two from Practice Squad
In light of LB Devin White and DT Steve McLendon missing Sunday’s game on the COVID-19 list, the Bucs signed back LB Jack Cichy from the Patriots practice squad, and elevated defensive tackle Benning Potoa’e from the practice squad. CB Herb Miller, who recorded his first career interception last week in the fourth quarter against the Detroit Lions, was also elevated, presumably to replace Carlton Davis, who was listed as doubtful on the team’s final injury report of the week.
All three could play major roles for the Bucs on Sunday, especially on special teams, where Miller and Cichy are likely to take on immediate roles. Potoa’e should compete with rookie Khalil Davis for playing time as a part of the Bucs five-man interior defensive line rotation.
