Bucs to be without 1 TE as another makes debut



The Buccaneers practiced today in preparations for this Sunday’s game against the Titans. Earlier in the week it was confirmed that both Alex Cappa (G) and Jack Cichy (LB) would miss Sunday’s game. Today we learned that O.J. Howard (TE) will also be out. Howard has been nursing a hamstring injury and apparently will not be ready by gametime.

This leaves a huge hole in the Buccaneers offense as Howard has accounted for nearly 66% of the snaps so far this season. Look for Cameron Brate and Antony Auclair to pick up the slack and for Tanner Hudson to make his debut.

Jason Pierre-Paul (OLB) has not yet been cleared. Pierre-Paul has looked good in practice but still needs the doctors to clear him to play.
