The term being used is a patellar fracture in the right knee for Barimah, however, he will seek a second opinion.
‘Hey Jude’ was signed as an undrafted free agent in 2015, by the Buccaneers. He was waived at the end of that preseason to be picked back up and placed on the practice squad.
He was later activated only to be suspended for PED violations. In December of last year, he was placed on the IR after suffering the knee injury he had recently aggravated.
Barimah has played in 23 games over the past two seasons starting 8 times recording 55 tackles, 2 sacks, and 1 forced fumble.
The time frame on how long he is to be out is awaiting a second opinion, however, the general consensus is that he could miss the season.
