The Bucs can’t seem to get through a game healthy this season, especially in the secondary. Starting cornerback Carlton Davis was ruled out in the second quarter of game against the Patriots.

Davis injured his quad on a non-contact play late in the second quarter. He was able to walk off the field with help from trainers, but took a cart back to the locker room. His injury left the Bucs thin at cornerback. Head coach Bruce Arians was asked about Davis’ status after the game.

“No (update),” Arians said. “It’ll be awhile it looks like.”

Antoine Winfield Jr. also left the game with a concussion in the fourth quarter and would not return. Mike Edwards would replace him in the lineup. When asked post-game about Winfield Jr’s status, Arians said the safety is in the concussion protocol.

 

All three starting corners for the Bucs are now out with injury. Sean Murphy-Bunting left the Dallas Cowboys game with a dislocated elbow and has been placed on injured reserve. Two weeks later, Jamel Dean left with a knee injury early in the game against the Rams. Dean practiced all week, but was ruled out on Friday.

The Bucs had to rely heavily on the newly signed Richard Sherman, who had just three days of practice with the team. Corners Ross Cockrell, Dee Delaney and Pierre Desir, who was promoted to the active roster after signing to the practice squad three weeks ago, saw extensive playing time. Rashard Robinson has also been elevated from the practice squad the past two weeks, playing mostly on special teams.

Man this defense has taken a beating. Five starters now out. Thankfully we have Miami next and a few easy games where hopefully the offense can lead the show until the Bucs can get healthy again. Loosing all three starting CB’s is just bad luck

Think the Trask pick could have been more wisely spent on a DB or a LB that can cover.

Everyone trashed all the DB picks when they were made year after year yet we needed all of em and more. If they would have gotten another DB instead people would have dogged the puck saying it was the one position we were flush at and blah blah blah. The Trask pick showed this team is thinking beyond this year and the next. I want a future option in there learning and growing. Sherman is better than any 2nd round DB we would have gotten at 64 anyways.

Brady is most likely going to play another three or four years. In four years Trask will be a free agent. Normally, I think it is smart to draft developmental QB’s every two or three years, but not at this time. The Bucs have a shot at winning another two or three Super Bowls over the next few years so I think the prudent 2nd round pick this year should’ve been a positional player.

Totally true now that CB are decimated.

Davis hurt his Quad because he’s still probably nursing his Hamstring. He shouldn’t be out too long but needs to heal if he’s ever gonna get back to 100%. Dean sounds like he should be back any day but again, needs to heal so he doesn’t go back out and SMB should be back soon hopefully but we gotta find a way to get through these next couple/few games. I think Sherman will get better and better and be an amazing addition once we are at full strength but how likely are the backups to get up to speed while… Read more »

It’s early in the season, so I hope we can get some players healed up before having them go out too early and possibly make their injuries worse. Our offense needs to start clicking. The last few weeks they haven’t looked too good. Way too much talent to be playing like this. Every week it seems that one of our top WR’s is left out of the game plan, or they are getting shut down. This is a head scratcher for me. Also, I was shocked at the poor clock and game management towards the end of the game last… Read more »

Ok so im going to look at this game with two points- yes, someone mentioned below that our offense has not been clicking and I agree- though I didn’t like the two bombs two AB when we could have gotten closer and even kept the drive going with a first down, the second one has to be a catch- it was a perfectly placed ball by Brady. We had a few dropped balls by Evans and Brate more-so in spots in the game when we could have kept drives going and possibly scored. Now let’s talk officiating- If that fumble… Read more »

Just had a crazy thought. Since Gronk won’t be back for cat least two more games, put Godwin at TE. He’s a good enough blocker & would be a nightmare to stop, particularly in the Red Zone. I was wondering if there are any CBs on the market that the Bucs may be able to acquire ASAP. Here are some possibilities:  1. & 2. Byron Jones or Xavien Howard from Miami. The Dolphins are paying Jones & Xavien Howard of the Dolphins top-tier money & they desperately need offensive help. Jones is one of the best CBs in the league,… Read more »
