The Buccaneers can’t keep their secondary healthy.

Cornerback Richard Sherman, who was signed two weeks ago, limped off the field in the first quarter. He pulled up on a 23-yard reception from Jalen Hurts to Quez Watkins.

Sherman immediately headed to the training room.

The Bucs quickly ruled him out with a hamstring injury.

The Bucs entered the game with five defensive backs having missed a combined 11 games this season. Slot cornerback Sean Murphy-Bunting dislocated his elbow in Week 1; safety Jordan Whitehead missed the season opener with a hamstring injury; cornerback Jamel Dean missed one game and most of another with a knee injury; safety Antoine Winfield Jr. is missing his second game with a concussion; and cornerback Carlton Davis is on injured reserve with a quad injury.

The Bucs replaced Sherman with Dee Delaney, not Pierre Desir as expected.

Dean was flagged for a 45-yard pass interference penalty that set up Jalen Hurts’ 5-yard touchdown pass to Zach Ertz on the next play. That briefly tied the game at 7-7, but the Bucs since have scored on a 23-yard touchdown pass from Tom Brady to Antonio Brown.

Brady is 11-of-12 for 121 yards and two touchdowns. Hurts is 2-for-4 for 28 yards and a touchdown.
