Bucs head coach Bruce Arians gave an update on the health of his team on Monday. He and the team are still waiting on a word in regards to Jamel Dean’s health after leaving Sundays loss against the Rams with a knee injury. He also revealed wide receiver Scotty Miller has “pretty severe turf toe.”
#Bucs HC Bruce Arians says they'll definitely get Kevin Minter back from the COVID list and they're still waiting on AB.
They don't know yet about Jamel Dean's injury, and Scotty Miller came up with a tough case of turf toe.
Arians also told the media the team would be getting veteran linebacker Kevin Minter back on Wednesday from off of the reserve/COVID list. Antonio Brown’s return from the reserve/COVID list is a bit more uncertain.
“We’ll definitely get Kevin [Minter] back and we’re waiting on A.B. as far as the COVID guys”, Arians said. “The rest of the list is still being evaluated. We’re not sure about Dean yet, the other guy that showed up was Scotty Miller with a pretty severe turf toe. We’re waiting to see on a bunch of guys and we’ll know a heck of a lot more on Wednesday.”
Arians was also asked about an update on Jason Pierre-Paul. Asked if he would play this week, or if his shoulder injury will keep the Bucs veteran out of another game Arians had this to say.
“We’ll wait and see. I’ve got to see it Wednesday. I don’t foresee it, but knowing J.P.P., anything’s possible.”
#Bucs HC Bruce Arians says they still have to wait and see for if JPP can practice on Wednesday. He doesn't foresee it, but knowing JPP, anything is possible.
Giovani Bernard, who suffered an apparent leg injury on his touchdown reception, was given an injury update as well.
“No, he’s still being evaluated, we probably won’t know till Wednesday.”
#Bucs HC Bruce Arians says Gio Bernard is still being evaluated so they don't know yet if he can practice on Wednesday. If he can't play this week they'll just rely on Leonard Fournette and RoJo more. Ke'Shawn Vaughn is also capable. They still like him.
