Buccaneers pass game getting some help from the replacements


Buccaneers have been down two of their main targets, for quite some time now. But thankfully the backups are starting to come around and make a difference. However, minute it may be.

“The hard work of those replacements is paying some big dividends. The combination of WR Donteea Dye, WR Adam Humphries, TE Cameron Brate and TE Brandon Myers has combined for 34 receptions for 345 yards and two touchdowns. And the Bucs (4-5) wouldn’t be on the cusp, yet again, of reaching the .500 mark without their contributions, Winston said.” “It’s a blessing to have players like Mike Evans, Vincent Jackson, Austin Seferian-Jenkins,’’ Winston said. “But when guys come out and work hard and don’t care about their circumstance and just come out to win and do their job, that’s how you win football games. So, I believe that we’ve played three great games with what we have and I’m glad to have those guys around me.” –Reported by Roy Cummings
