Buccaneers Place Barrett on Injured Reserve


The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have placed outside linebacker Shaq Barrett on Injured Reserve after the MRI on his Achilles showed it to be torn. Barrett is officially out for the season.

Via Scott Smith of buccaneers.com, “It’s a tough break for him,” stated head coach Todd Bowles “Anytime you lose somebody like that, that commands double teams, it makes it harder for everybody else. He’s been consistent since he’s been here, he’s been productive, he started out playing well last night. So it’s just a shame to see.”

Barrett ends the 2022 season with six tackles for loss, three sacks, six quarterback hits and a forced fumble.

This is a huge loss for the Bucs. If I were a gambling man, I’d say the Buccaneers look to aquire a pass rusher before the league’s trade deadline.
