The Buccaneers are in London this week to take on the Panthers. When they get home they’ll have a familiar face waiting for them.
Head coach Bruce Arians told the media Wednesday that Jason Pierre-Paul (OLB) will be back at practice when the Bucs return from their bye week. Pierre-Paul is targeting the October 27th game against the Tennessee Titans for his return.
Pierre-Paul has been on the non-football injury list since sustaining a cervical fracture in his neck as a result of a car accident.
Where exactly Pierre-Paul fits into the rotation is still a bit of a mystery. Shaq Barrett has excelled coming from the EDGE with 9 sacks, 3 forced fumbles and an interception. The 30 year old pass rusher is reportedly in great shape and ready to make an impact.
