The Tampa Bay Buccaneers held on for the win Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks 21-16. The game featured the re-emergence of the Bucs’ running game with two running backs averaging over four yards per carry. Unfortunately that came with a cost.
Buccaneers’ running back Leonard Fournette left Sunday’s game with a hip injury. The initial report from ESPN’s Adam Schefter was that the injury wasn’t serious and that Fournette would “likely” be back for the Browns’ game after the team’s bye week.
Despite suffering a hip pointer vs. the Seahawks, Buccaneers’ RB Leonard Fournette is likely to be ready for Tampa Bay’s next game after its bye at Cleveland, per sources.

Buccaneers’ head coach Todd Bowles wasn’t ready to put a time on Fournette’s return Monday when he spoke with the media.
“Too early to tell, right now,” Bowles stated. “We’ll get the treatment, and we’ll reevaluate next week.”
The bye week will help in clearing up this uncertain time frame for Fournette’s return. Thankfully the Bucs have rookie running back Rachaad White to lean on.
