NFL injury updates, latest league news for Saturday, November 20
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers already know they will be without a starter against the Giants on Monday night football. The status of two more will not be clear for a few days.
Bucs coach Bruce Arians reiterated that the “arrow is up” for tight end Rob Gronkowski as well as safety Sean Murphy-Bunting.
“We have a few decisions to make during the game,” Arians said.
Wideout Antonio Brown, who has not played since Week 6 due to a persistent ankle injury, will be ruled out again. Tampa Bay has been without Gronk and SMB for much of the season.
The former All-Pro tight end missed last week’s loss to Washington after sustaining a back injury in the previous game, which marked his comeback after a four-game absence with fractured ribs. It is officially listed as questionable.
Murphy-Bunting, meanwhile, must still be activated from the casualty reserve to be cleared to act. The third-year safety is looking to come back from a dislocated elbow suffered in the season opener.
âSean showed me he was probably ready to go,â Arians said. âGetting it back is one thing, playing 60 coins is another. We can’t overload it, but there are places where if we bring it back there, it can help us, that’s for sure, and gradually get it back. his role.”
Arians said the wide Scotty Miller (toe) could also be activated from IR as needed. Defensive tackle Vita Vea (knee) is questionable.
