The Tampa Bay Buccaneers finished their disappointing 2022 season with a 31-14 loss to the Dallas Cowboys in Monday night’s wild-card playoff game, and once again, the absence of their top pass rusher was painfully evident.

All-Pro outside linebacker Shaq Barrett suffered a torn Achilles earlier in the season, and missed the rest of the year on injured reserve.

Barrett met with the media Tuesday morning, giving a positive update on his recovery, and making it clear that he expects to be ready for the start of the 2023 NFL season (via Fox Sports’ Greg Auman).

With Barrett out of the lineup for the entire second half of the season, Tampa Bay’s leader in the sack department was nose tackle Vita Vea with 6.5 sacks.
