Buccaneers’ Mayfield on Playing Sunday, “I’ll Do Everything I Can”


The Tampa Bay Buccaneers head to Charlotte to take on the Panthers this week. In a game that the Pewter Pirates need to win in order to clinch the division and a home playoff game, quarterback Baker Mayfield may not be able to play.

“Division on the line. Playoffs on the line. Going back to Carolina? Yeah, I’ll do everything I can.”

Mayfield is dealing with a rib injury sustained in the team’s 23-13 loss to the New Orleans Saints last week. But what if Mayfield can’t go Sunday?

From head coach Todd Bowles via Fox Sports’ Greg Auman,

“Bowles says Baker Mayfield would not have practiced today due to ribs injury. Said Kyle Trask would take more reps Thursday if Mayfield can’t go. Will come down to how he feels. Had previously said Mayfield would play Sunday.”

Yes Bucs’ fans, there’s a real chance Kyle Trask might be behind center this week as the Buccaneers look to clinch the division.
