It is Day 2 of the first set of OTAs for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and some players are dealing with injuries as the offseason is underway.
FOX Sports’ Greg Auman reported on the team’s injuries on Wednesday, from those who are at OTAs and not practicing to those who are not at OTAs due to their injuries.
Here are the players who are at OTAs, but not practicing due to injury:
RB Chase Edmonds
RB Sean Tucker
DB Duron Lowe
TE Dominque Dafney
And here are the players not at OTAs due to injury:
G Aaron Stinnie
WR Russell Gage
RB Chase Edmonds had an ankle injury last November that could still be keeping him out of OTAs, though his exact injury is unknown. RB Sean Tucker is still dealing with the issue that was flagged at the NFL Combine and is expected to be cleared for training camp. WR Russell Gage’s injury is a new development, as QB Baker Mayfield spoke about it on Tuesday, and Stinnie tore his ACL in the preseason in 2022, so it’s possible he could still be recovering from that — that isn’t confirmed, however.
Tampa Bay will certainly hope that these players will be ready by training camp, though it’s hard to give a timetable for a few of them since their injuries are undisclosed at the time.
